Tara LaRosa: 'Before I left, Monte was joking about an Evan Tanner situation happening to me'

And when she was stuck in snow and sub-freezing temperatures in Pennsylvania's Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail with dehydration and hypothermia, the "joke" almost became a tragic reality (via MMA Die Hards):

"I did not know what day it was, or where I was. I don’t really know what I was saying, but I knew my name and how old I was. I kept going to sleep on them, and then they would yell at me to wake me up. I am not sure how I made it out there, but I have an idea. Somebody was with me and got me through, my guardian angel."

Women's top ranked fighter, Tara LaRosa, attempted a 70-mile "head-clearing excursion" in the snow and freezing cold this past weekend, only to see the weather fall to far worse conditions than she previously anticipated. That, coupled with an equipment failure, left her stranded and alone before a last-ditch effort to send a text message miraculously made it through to her mother, who alerted authorities that eventually traced her location and managed to rescue her.
