Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate probably didn’t expect to become a hero to a six-year-old girl and her family over Labor Day weekend, but that is exactly what happened.
According to Andreas Hale of Yahoo Sports, Tate was hiking at Mount Charleston near Las Vegas when she encountered Kai. Kai had broken her arm on the trail, and Hale noted “Tate spotted Kai’s mother struggling to carry the little girl down the 2.6-mile trail and decided to help out.”
