Over the weekend, Miriam Nakamoto received an incredible text message!
The MMA fighter, nicknamed “The Queen of Mean,” found out that MMA commentator and podcaster Joe Rogan had made it possible for her to receive a $30,000 medical procedure that she could not afford.
To further his kindness, Rogan also offered to cover her travel expenses to Panama, where the procedure will take place.
The bantamweight fighter was undefeated in kickboxing before turning her sights onto mixed martial arts. She took a loss in her last fight due to a significant knee injury, which she described as a grade 3 lesion on her meniscus.
Thanks to Rogan’s generosity, he’s making it possible for her to receive a stem cell treatment that will help repair some of the damage. This will not only better her health but it also increases the chance to make her comeback dream a reality.
