(Updated) Miesha Tate Carries Injured Girl Down Hiking Trail, Parents Call Fighter “Amazing”
By FCF Staff
Miesha Tate is in the news again, but not because of something the former UFC champ did in the Octagon.
The parents of a young girl, named Kai, are reporting that Tate helped carry her down a hiking trail in Nevada. Tate reportedly offered to do so after the girl broke her arm at the top of a trail on Mt. Charleston.
Such a crazy labor day weekend for our family but ended in such an amazing and beautiful way. My poor Kai broke her arm at the top of the Mary Jane Falls hike at Mt Charleston. So @mommapook and I basically had to carry her down miles ahead. To our rescue and assistance came the amazing @mieshatate the UFC fighter. She offered to help us carry her down the mountain. Such an amazing and humble person to have met. Our family cant thank you enough for all the help. You saved us easily hours of hiking and helped us get her to the hospital sooner. Thank you again #mieshatate
(Update: recently the following thank-you message from Kai was also posted)
Tear jerker! Meet Kai the sweet little girl that kept me company down the mountain side, very upbeat despite her broken arm. And I just have to say this was one of the most rewarding days of my athletic career. And I also want to make a point that I have been told many times that I am "too buff" or "manly" that I should stop lifting weights, that it's "gross" and not attractive for a woman. I am so happy I never listened to the limitations others wanted to put on me and I hope that our youth knows that don't have to conform. That strength and beauty come from within! #BeStrong #BeCapable #BeWhatYouWant #NoRegrets #JustLove #PayItForward #GiveBack #Inspire
