Jarrod Haschert, a Marine based in North Carolina, didn’t have a date for the upcoming Marine Corps Ball. So he decided, why not just go ahead and invite the girl of his dreams?
Haschert posted a video to Facebook with a message directed to his “celebrity crush” – UFC champion Ronda Rousey.
“I love everything you do and I think you are a phenomenal person,” Haschert gushed. “Which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball.”
The video, seen below, garnered over 4 million views.
Rousey saw the video and responded that since her fight has been rescheduled, “she’ll totally go.”
Score one for the Marines!!!!
The ballsy Devil Dog who asked Ronda Rousey to his Marine Corps Ball — in a video viewed more than 4 million times — just got some great news … SHE’S ALL IN!!!
Ronda was out in L.A. with 3 friends when she said she wasn’t just impressed with Jarrod Haschert’s video … but she thinks he’s cute too.
And now that her upcoming fight has been moved from January to November, her schedule is wide open to attend the ball on December 11th. There’s just one catch — Jarrod might need to round up some single friends, STAT!
One more thing … Ronda says she may be interested, but warns she’s not a “first date kind of a girl” … which shouldn’t be a problem since Haschert appeared on “TMZ Hollywood Sports” last week, he told us he plans on being a perfect gentleman.

Haschert explained that Rousey “would truly be making my dreams come true.” It looks like those dreams are about to become reality.
