Ronda Rousey promised to go to Marine Corps Ball, she kept her word

She’s still a knockout.

Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey fulfilled her promise to a Marine who made a viral video asking for her to attend a Marine Corps Ball with him.

“I love everything that you do, and I think that you are a phenomenal person which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball on December 11,” Marine Jarrod Haschert said in the video posted to his Facebook page in August. “I really hope this doesn’t get in the way of your training … but I hope you take this into consideration, because if you do, you will truly be making my dream come true,” the 22-year-old added.

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!!
