A little girl got some help from a UFC fighter on Mount Charleston this Labor Day weekend.
Miesha Tate was hiking at Mary Jane Falls Sunday when she saw a mother struggling to carry her 6-year-old daughter down the trail so she offered to help out, according to Tate's Facebook page.
Tate wrote the mother asked her daughter "would you rather have me or her carry you down" when the girl, named Kai, said she wanted Tate to carry her.
"Kai and I learned a lot about each other on the roughly 2-mile descent and it's fair to say she inspired me," Tate wrote on the page. "We made it all the way down without slipping or falling! We agreed we would both be strong for each other!"
Kai sent Tate a thank you message after helping her down the trail.
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
Tate said on Instagram, "And I just have to say this was one of the most rewarding days of my athletic career."
The girl's family also thanked Tate in an Instagram post.
"She offered to help us carry her down the mountain. Such an amazing and humble person to have met," Andrew Abalos wrote. "Our family can't thank you enough for all the help. You saved us easily hours of hiking and helped us get her to the hospital sooner."
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
Tate defeated Holly Holm for the UFC Bantaweight Championship earlier this year but lost in July at UFC 200 to Amanada Nunes.
