LAS VEGAS (AP) — UFC star Miesha Tate says she’s inspired by the tough little girl who broke her arm while hiking near Las Vegas after the mixed martial arts fighter carried the child back down the mountain.
Tate posted on Facebook that she encountered the 6-year-old Sunday on the popular Mary Jane Falls trail of Mount Charleston, about 40 miles northwest of Las Vegas.
Amber Ellis of Lake Havasu City in Arizona said in her own Facebook post that her daughter, Kai, broke her arm at the top of the mountain during a family hike over the Labor Day weekend.
Tate said she assisted the family after spotting the “meekly built” Ellis struggling to carry the girl down the mountain.
They made it down without any issues, which Tate attributed to team work.
