This summer Marine Jarrod Haschert made headlines when his video asking Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball went viral. Following the video’s response, Rousey accepted the invitation and even confirmed it in late October, now it looks like she will be a no show.
Following Rousey’s defeat to Holly Holm, she has been MIA, and the Marine Corps Ball is tonight. His mom had this to say on a local radio station:
“Jarrod said he hasn’t heard anything yet. All I know is I’m going in the hopes she’ll be there, It would be sad if he got all dressed up, expected a date and doesn’t have one. She said she would be there. A few times.”
Rousey still has stitches in her lip and a few lose teeth but she made a commitment to a young man serving his country. Don’t turn a bad situation into something worse, go to the ball.
It’s been a rough month for Ronda Rousey, what with her losing the UFC women’s bantamweight title to Holly Holm via headkick. According to a recent feature with ESPN, she’s “heartbroken” and hasn’t taken the loss well. So, you may excuse her if she hasn’t been keeping up with many social obligations since her fight.
But hopefully she manages to lift her spirits enough to still attend the Marine Corps Birthday Ball with Marine Jarrod Haschert. The young man made headlines when he uploaded a video asking the mixed martial arts fighter to the ball, and she made even more when she accepted. At the end of October, she reconfirmed, saying her boyfriend Travis Browne “understands” and “it ain’t no thang.”
Should Rousey go or stay at home and heal? Sound off in the comments below!
