MMA fighter Miesha Tate carries injured six-year-old down mountain

In her Twitter bio, Miesha Tate calls herself a “professional face puncher,” but don’t be fooled—she’s still perfectly nice. 

Tate spent her Labor Day hiking up Charleston Peak outside Las Vegas and spotted an injured 6-year-old near the top. The girl had a broken arm and her mom was struggling to carry her down the mountain, so Tate offered to carry her.

The girl, Kai, also recorded a thank you video for Tate. 

“[T]here's no way I would have been able to [carry her] myself,” Kai’s mom wrote on Instagram. “Miesha, you are a true life saver and I can't thank you enough for helping us out today!”
