Rousey to keep Marine date?: Rousey Marine Corps Ball

Rousey to keep Marine date?: Rousey Marine Corps Ball, Less than a month after suffering a shocking knockout loss, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is showing she’s true to her word.

Rousey is following through on a promise to attend the Commandant’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball as Jarrod Haschert’s date tonight.

The New Jersey Marine had asked Rousey to be his date in a Facebook video that went viral in August, and Rousey accepted in September.

As the date neared, several speculated the Venice resident, who was devastated by her second-round loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Australia, might not show up.

A source close to Rousey confirmed Friday morning she was en route to Maryland.

“After her fight, she knew she had made a promise to this young man and never thought for a second about breaking it,” the source said. “She paid her own way and did exactly what she said she was going to do because that’s the type of woman she is.”

Speculation swirled Thursday that Rousey might be a no-show when Haschert’s mother told NJ 101.5, a local radio station, that her son “hasn’t heard anything yet.”
