Ronda Rousey plans to attend Marine Corps ball for more than 34 seconds
Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert asked Ronda Rousey to this year’s Marine Corps Ball in a video that went viral over the past few weeks.
Apparently Rousey knew about the invitation but couldn’t accept because training for her fight with Holly Holm conflicted with the event. When the fight was moved to November, she decided to go to the ball but didn’t know how to to contact Haschert.
“Do I call him?” she said in an acceptance video that went viral as well. “Or do I set up a time and place like “Never Been Kissed” and wait until the clock runs out and be like ‘I’m here!'”
She also said the Marine would have to be on his best behavior and would have to find dates for all her single friends.
“He needs to find dates for my girls,” she said, “and we’ll all go.”
Rousey is undefeated in the UFC with 12 wins. Her last three fights all lasted 34 seconds or less.
