Miesha Tate carries injured 6-year-old girl down hiking trail

Last weekend, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate stumbled upon Kai, a 6-year-old girl who had just broken her arm, while hiking near Mount Charleston outside Las Vegas and proceeded to carry the girl down the steep, 2.6-mile trail.

Tate saw Kai’s mother and father struggling to carry her atop the trail near Mary Jane Falls, and decided to offer them assistance and carry her down for them.

Tate shared the details of the encounter on her Facebook page Sunday.

After the encounter, Kai’s parents expressed their relief and gratitude for Tate’s kindness on Instagram on Sunday.

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
