The 33-year-old, who is on the card of UFC 149 in Calgary on July 21, was driving when he saw a group of teenagers attacking two others near MacLeod Trail. "They were assaulting them," Ring said. "One of the attacker girls was kneeing the victim girl in the face. "They beat the tar out of them. These poor kids had cuts all over their face from the strikes theyd taken." Ring says when he jumped out of his car, he was joined by another bystander. After checking on the victims, he and the bystander gave chase and caught one male. Ring followed the others while he called the police. "They had no idea who I was," Ring said. "They were running away like scared little rats. The cops caught up with them. "As as I was pointing them out, one of them challenged me to a one-on-one match. He said that he would take me." A Calgary Police Service spokesperson said the victims were a male and female, both 17. One was treated for minor injuries. "Their faces were bloody and cut open," Ring said. "It was a really sad thing to see. They didnt deserve what they got. They were outnumbered. I had to even out the playing field." Ring believed the female attacker stole the female victims backpack, but police said a backpack wasnt involved and called the incident "an altercation." A 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old male and a 15-year-old female, who were among the group accosting the victims, have been charged with assault. Rings career record is 12-1, including 2-1 in UFC. Rueben Randle Jersey . "I knew that if we got the stick around then all I had to do was to bring it home," Jeter said. Miles Austin Jersey . This week brings the NBA Draft (Thursday at 7pm et/4pm pt on TSN), the unofficial start to the off-season feeding frenzy that will dominate league headlines for the next several weeks. The draft not only brings with it the promise of 60 new youngsters entering the leagues ranks, but also a bevy of trades that will reshape the rosters of those involved as much as any teenager picked on Thursday night. NaVorro Bowman Jersey . -- Alex Gordon and Brayan Pena combined on a play at the plate to preserve a shutout for Vin Mazzaro and three Royals relievers. Anthony Spencer Jersey .Y. -- Geoff Snider of the Calgary Roughnecks had four goals and two assists to rally the West to a 20-18 win over the East in the National Lacrosse League all-star game Saturday night. Patrick Willis Jersey . The Longueil, Que., contender backed Noe Gonzalez of Uruguay into a corner and finished him with a flurry of shots 1:40 into the second round of their scheduled 12 round bout on Friday night to take a step closer to his goal of fighting for a world title.The Winnipeg Goldeyes found themselves trailing the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks 11-1 after three innings. Not surprisingly, they didnt recover. RedHawks centrefielder Nic Jackson had a double, a home run and five runs batted in while third baseman Ryan Stovall had two singles, a home and three RBI, as the RedHawks pounded eight Goldeyes pitchers for 16 runs on 13 hits (along with nine walks) as the ‘Hawks won their third straight from the Fish and took the four-game series in Winnipeg, three-games-to-one. The final score was 16-7 and it was a tribute to the resiliency of a Goldeyes team that, as manager Rick Forney said, “has nothing left in the tank.” With 6,628 spectators looking on, the RedHawks scored a run in the first off Goldeyes starter and loser Chris Zbin (0-1, 15.43 ERA), but the Fish battled back with a run in the bottom of the first as Price Kendall singled and eventually came around to score on a base hit by Jon Weber. But thats when the roof fell in on the Goldeyes. Fargo put up three in the second and then seven in the third and there was no air left in Winnipegs balloon. “We were manhandled,” Forney said. “You cant walk that many guys and have a chance to win. Especially when the other team is running, you know theyre running and you dont adjust your delivery in order to hold runners. But its tough for kids to come into a league like this where its so fast for them. If they dont get through a couple of innings unscathed it just piles up on them and they can get manhandleed. Eli Manning Elite Jersey. .” With the score 11-1 in the fourth, the Goldeyes tried to battle back as Dan Barbero and David Narodowski each drove in runs and Price Kendall knocked in a pair with a bases-loaded single, but 11-5 was as close as Winnipeg would come. In the fifth, Jackson hit a two-run homer and Stovall hit a three-run bomb and that was it. The Fish put up a run in the seventh and another in the eighth, but this one was over early. Aaron Shafer (2-4, 6.43) got the win for Fargo, who improved to 17-19 on the season. The Goldeyes fell to 21-15 and now lead Sioux Falls by just a game and a half in the race for first in the North Division. “In a three-game series, other than the start we got from Ace, we got starts of 4.2 innings, two and two,” Forney said. “Youre going to get your brains beat out if you dont get longer starts and we got our brains beat out today. “Our guys have nothing left in the tank right now. The life has been sucked right out of this team (with injuries, call-ups and a tough early-season travel schedule). We arent even going to take batting practice for the next three days. I want the guys to rest and use one three-hour window a day to play the games. We need some rest.” Monday night the Sioux City Explorers will open a three-game series at Shaw Park in Winnipeg. Matt Rusch (4-1, 1.97 ERA) will get the start in the opener for the Goldeyes. Game time is 7 p.m. and it can be heard live on TSN Radio 1290 with Paul Edmonds calling the play-by-play. ' ' '
