A Japanese MMA legend did a selfless act in a Tokyo subway when he saw an injured man on the tracks. Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto jumped onto the tracks when he saw an injured man bleeding heavily from his forehead.

According to, Yamamoto could not lift the man off the tracks himself and convinced some bystanders to help lift the man off the tracks. Together, they moved the injured man to safety before the next train would come.

Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto has fought for k-1, Shooto, Dream, and UFC. With an exceptional career in Japan, he quickly became a legend in the MMA world. Yamamoto has lost three straight fights in the UFC, but his super hero act in the subway is a definite win in anyone’s book.
