How Miesha Tate saved Bryan Caraway's mother's life
(mmajunkie.com)
The short version of the story goes like this: Bryan Caraway, looking to do something nice with the money he’s made as a UFC fighter, takes his parents and his girlfriend on a vacation to Mexico. Then his mother almost dies. Then his girlfriend, who is also a UFC fighter, steps in and saves her life. After that, they go shopping for souvenirs and fly home in time to catch the UFC Fan Expo. Everyone lives, as they say, happily ever after. The longer version is a bit more complicated. It begins in Cancun, in the Caribbean Sea, on a pleasant little snorkeling trip.
