It was nothing really, just a simple, innocuous photo from UFC strawweight Nina Ansaroff that showed she was happy to be in the gym.

"Fight camp feels," Ansaroff tweeted with the image.

What this led to, though, was a special exchange between Ansaroff and an apparent childhood neighbor whom she saved from bullies on more than one occasion (via Twitter).

We grew up in the same neighborhood - in Bonaventure. You protected me from bullies more than once at the bus stop and on the bus - thank you for always being a super hero!

I remember you! Wow, you just gave me goosebumps. I hate bullies! Hope all is well!

I mean, how great is that? Pretty much just made my day.

Ansaroff will bring a three-fight winning streak into her next bout, against former title challenger Claudia Gadelha on Dec. 8 at UFC 231 in Toronto.
