Former UFC bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate helped to rescue a child this weekend who had fallen on a hike.

According to a Facebook post, the child (identified at Kai) had fallen and broken her arm at the top of Mary Jane Falls. The child's mother was having trouble carrying her back down the mountain, so Tate offered to carry her.

"I preceded to carry the sweet little thing all the way to the bottom," Tate wrote. "Kai and I learned a lot about each other on the roughly 2 mile descent and It's fair to say she inspired me. We made it all the way down without slipping or falling! We agreed we would both be strong for each other! Team work at it's best!"

Tate also shared a video of the child thanking her.

"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," she wrote. "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!"

The trail spans 2.6 miles and is located in the Toiyabe National Forest, Nevada.
