Miesha Tate has kept out of the public eye since she had her belt taken from her in a one-sided thrashing by Amanda Nunes, but now she's back in the best way possible. A family was hiking at the top of Mount Charleston in Nevada when their 6-year-old daughter fell and broke her arm. Miles from civilization, a willing and able Miesha Tate swooped in to save the day and ease the burden on the already exhausted parents.

The girl's father took to Instagram to thank Tate:

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

Miesha is no stranger to heroic deeds. You'll notice that one of the first Facebook commenters brought up an incident in which Tate saved her boyfriend, UFC fighter Bryan Caraway's, mother. In 2014, Tate and the Caraway's were snorkeling when Caraway's mother had a deadly asthma attack. If it were not for Tate's quick thinking by inhaling his mother's inhaler then performing mouth to mouth, she would've died then and there.

Miesha needs to change her nickname from "Cupcake" to "Superwoman."
