Ronda Rousey Attends Marine Corps Ball With Marine Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert
Ronda Rousey attended the 2015 Marine Corps Ball on Friday as the date of Marine Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert. Check out the photos below!
Haschert made a Facebook video in August inviting Rousey to the annual gala. “You would truly be making my dreams come true. I really hope you get this, and take consideration into it,” said the North Carolina-based serviceman. The clip has since been viewed more than five million times.
Rousey accepted the invitation just days later. Whether she would actually go, though, was up in the air in the wake of the MMA fighter’s startling defeat in her fight against Holly Holm in November. As Gossip Cop reported, Rousey was severely injured, and even said in an interview released earlier this week that it could be up to six months before she can chew properly again.
But the athlete kept her word. On Friday morning, Rousey took a flight from California to South Carolina, telling cameramen outside the airport, “I promised I’d go. It’s an honor to be asked.” She even added that the event was a reason for her to get out and be happy, instead of “on my couch crying and eating ice cream for like another month.”
And it looks as though Rousey had a wonderful time, at least based on the photos below. Of course, the boxer isn’t the first celebrity to accept a date to the Marine Corps Ball. As Gossip Cop has reported, Mila Kunis, Kristin Cavallari, and Justin Timberlake are just some of the stars who have attended in past years. TELL US: What do you think of Rousey keeping her promise?
