Ronda Rousey Keeps Her Marine Corps Ball Promise

rondaandjarrod

After her brutal and surprising defeat by Holly Holm a few weeks back, not many people expected UFC fighter Ronda Rousey to keep her Marine Corps ball date with Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert.

Rousey showed up Friday in Myrtle Beach, SC for what amounted to her first public appearance since that November 14th bout at UFC 193 and she was in great spirits.

The fighter talked to TMZ at LAX before she boarded her flight to South Carolina. “… To get out of the house is probably a good thing. I promised I would go. It’s an honor to be asked.”

And, because TMZ is always at the airport, they got her to talk about Jarrod when she got back to LA: “He was a real gentleman and a real sweetheart.” She also explained that she didn’t dance at the ball because “I don’t dance in public.”

Good job, Lance Cpl. Haschert. When Rousey returns to the ring to kick some ass, you and the Marine Corps can take credit for getting her back on the quest to dominate her sport.

    Given the seriousness of the closed head injury she sustained, she would be crazy to get back in the ring. Acting would be a good alternative.

    The class she showed by keeping that date will benefit her in the future. :-)

    That is so cool!!…I’ll bet his friends wish they had thought of something like that…asking a celebrity to the ball. Most of the public probably thought she’d never show. She kept her word…it easy to trust somebody that keep their word…For that alone, she’ll always be a champion in my book.
