Chris Weidman saves elderly neighbor's life

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Chris Weidman was in the right place at the right time for one of his neighbors.

According to Weidman's wife, who posted about the ordeal on Instagram, the UFC middleweight champion came to the aid of his neighbor, who was bleeding after an accident in her home.

Shout out to this man @chrisweidmanufc who just saved our 92 year old neighbors life. She fell onto a glass table and had pieces stuck in her head. She was in her driveway bleeding out in the rain trying to call her daughter on the phone. Chris ran over and brought her inside, cleaned her up and called 911. #myhero

Weidman detailed the harrowing encounter to MMA Fighting's Shaun Al-Shatti here.
