She said yes! United States Marine Jarrod Haschert asked UFC Champion Ronda Rousey to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball. After considering his offer, Ronda said she would go — but only if Jarrod does one thing!
It’s great when your crush says “yes” after you ask them out on a date, but for Jarrod Haschert, 22, the US Marine must feel like he’s on top of the world. Jarrod asked UFC Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey, 28, if she would accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball. After days of waiting to hear her reply, Jarrod finally has an answer: Ronda said yes — but there’s a catch!
Jarrod posted a Facebook video on Aug. 22, asking if the undefeated fighter would make HIM feel like a champ. Jarrod said that Ronda was his “celebrity crush” and thought she was a “phenomenal person.” He would be honored if she makes his “dream come true” by being his date to the Dec. 11 event.
After waiting, Ronda was able to give her response! “I just saw [the video] the other day,” said Ronda, according to TMZ, “and I was like ‘Aw, I can’t go anyway, because I’m in [training] camp,’ but the fight got moved. So, I actually CAN go.” When asked if this means she would go, Ronda said yes!
But before Jarrod and Ronda have the time of their lives, they need to work out all the deets. “I don’t know how to, hit him up and say, ‘Yeah, I want to go with you,'” she said, showing off her “sweet side” again. “Do I have to call him or do I set up a time and place like Never Been Kissed, and just show up?”
Nice reference, Ronda. Though Ronda said that she thought Jarrod was cute, she said, “He’s got to be a gentleman.” And, there’s a catch! Ronda was with her girlfriends when she gave her answer. “He needs to find dates for my girls,” she said, “and we’ll all go.” Wow! Jarrod better find some of his single friends ASAP!
Ronda was able to join Jarrod because her fight with Holly Holm was bumped up, reports MMAJunkie.com Instead of meeting in Vegas on Jan. 2, 2016 for UFC 195, Holly and Ronda will travel to Melbourne, Australia to fight at UFC 193 on Nov. 14! They say “all’s fair in love and war” and Ronda now has time for both!
Are you happy that Ronda said yes, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Jarrod will find dates for all of Ronda’s friends?
