If it’s not a minor league baseball player leaving a ticket every game at will call for UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, it’s a Marine asking her out on a date.
On Tuesday, Rousey made Jarrod Haschert’s dream come true, telling TMZ Sports that she will accept his invitation to the U.S. Marine corps ball on Dec. 11.
Luckily for Haschert, Rousey’s next scheduled title defense against Holly Holm was moved from Jan. 2, 2016 to Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 14. Had Rousey still been set to fight early next year, she would have been forced to miss the ball while in the heart of training camp.
"I'll go, for sure," Rousey told TMZ. "He's cute. I saw a screen shot of it and thought, 'I can't go anyway because I'll be in camp. But now I actually can go."
There is a catch though - Jarrod has to find three dates for the other three members of the Four Horsewomen (Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir). That shouldn't be a problem for Haschert.
Hey guys, I'm trying to take Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball this year and I need your help to reach out to her and her fans. Please share this post and video. Thank you!!
