Ronda Rousey


MMA fighter Ronda Rousey has a standing invitation.

However, this one's not to another fight.

Jarrod Haschert, a member of the United States Marine Corps, has shared a Facebook video asking the 28-year-old UFC bantamweight champion to be his date to a USMC Ball in December.

Hey guys, I'm trying to take Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball this year and I need your help to reach out to her and her fans. Please share this post and video. Thank you!!

In the video, which has racked up over 3.7M views so far, the soldier, who is stationed in North Carolina, says Rousey is his "celebrity crush."

Haschert admits the timing may be tricky, since he doesn't want to take away from Rousey's training for her fight against Holly Holm in January, but it's worth a shot!

The Marine adds that if Rousey can make it, she will "truly be making my dream come true."

Rousey wouldn't be the first star date to accompany a U.S. Marine to a special gala event. Mila Kunis, Kim Kardashian, Justin Timberlake, and Kristin Cavallari are among the celebs who have attended Marine balls in the past.

Of his 2011 experience at the Basic School Instructor Battalion 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Richmond, Virginia, Timberlake said: "I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes."

Here's hoping Haschert's wish comes true, or at least he gets a nod from his crush before she steps back into the ring!
