Miesha Tate Demonstrates Heroism Outside the Cage

Miesha Tate

It’s no secret that Miesha Tate is one hell of a fighter. She has, after all, won titles in both Strikeforce and the UFC. Yet Tate is also one of the sport’s kindest competitors–something she reminded the world of this weekend when she aided some struggling strangers while out on a hike in Nevada’s Mary Jane Falls.

During her trek, Tate came across a mother who was struggling to carry her injured daughter back down the mountain. As Tate explained in a Sunday night post to her Facebook page, she then carried the girl down the mountain for the mother, keeping her spirits up with conversation as she did.

Today a little girl broke her arm up at the top of Mary Jane falls (Mt Charleston) and I saw her meekly built mother…

Unsurprisingly, the girl’s parents were extremely appreciative of Tate’s efforts. The girl’s father took to Twitter to thank the former women’s bantamweight champ once his daughter had been patched up at the hospital. You can see that post below:

In a sport that is based largely on violent knockouts and trash talk, we need all the positive role models we can get. Miesha Tate is one such role model, and she continues to represent the sport well.

When we last saw Tate, she lost the UFC women’s bantamweight title to Amanda Nunes, succumbing to a first-round TKO. There’s no word on her comeback fight as of yet, but here’s hoping it’s soon.

Who do you want to see the heroic Miesha Tate fight next? Sound off, PENN nation!
