From Wikipedia:

"According the chronicler Ekkehard IV, in a story that is probably apocryphal, when Conrad learned that both the Magyars and the Saracens of Fraxinetum were marching against him, he sent envoys to both armies warning them of the other. The envoys offered Burgundian aid to each invader against the other and then informed them of the other's whereabouts. When the Magyars and Saracens met, the Burgundians held back and only attacked when the opposing forces were spent. In this way, both invading armies were destroyed and the captives sold into slavery."

Good question. There are many instances where three armies met (Romans, Greek, Vikings, Chinese and Japanese) but one side always sat out and waited for the winner of two armies fighting on the field. The only two I can really think of is Russia 1918, in Moscow, but for this to count, you have to add the small groups of guerilla fighters trying to flee Moscow, and Ukraine where it was four different forces.
