Could Ronda Rousey have finally found her match? In the cage, probably not. On the dance floor, perhaps.
Rousey has been in the news for a variety of topics this week, but U.S. Marine’s Jarrod Haschert seemed to get her the most attention. The Marine took to Facebook to ask Rousey to attend the Marine Corps Ball with him in December. At the time of the video, Rousey was scheduled to fight in early January.
Ask and you shall receive. TMZ cameras caught up with Ronda Rousey in California this week, and she said that she’d go to the Ball with Haschert.
“I just saw the other day. I would go for sure,” Rousey said, before stating that she just doesn’t know how to reach out to Haschert to contact him about the date.
In the video, the North Carolina-based Marine told Rousey that he was her celebrity crush. Rousey said that she’d like a package deal, in the form of Haschert finding dates for her three friends. Those friends happen to be fellow MMA fighters and Four Horsewomen members Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, and Marina Shafir. Rousey did say that since her fight with Holly Holm was re-scheduled, things opened up for her.
“The fight got moved, so I actually can go,” Rousey said. “But, I don’t know how to hit him up and say like, ‘Yeah, I want to go with you.’ I would go for sure. But, how do I call him? Do I set up a time and place like ‘Never Been Kissed’ and show up and have him waiting there until the clock runs out? He’s cute. He’s got to be a gentleman, I’m not a first date kind of girl. We’ll see when I meet him. I will totally go. Yes, it is a ‘yes.’ He needs to find dates for my girls, and then we’ll all go.”
Rousey’s love life has been center stage of late, although the reception hasn’t been good. UFC fighter Travis Browne’s ex wife Jenna Webb exposed the two for having a relationship on Twitter, following her domestic violence accusations against Browne. This news drew the ire of many fans, who have heard Rousey condemn boxing champion Floyd Mayweather for his domestic violence convictions. It’s worth noting that the UFC hired a third party to conduct a formal investigation on the matter, and the search proved inconclusive. Browne has since had his suspension lifted by the company.
