When UFC champ Ronda Rousey's fight against Holly Holm was moved up to Nov. 14, her schedule freed up so she could go on a date.

Rousey was recently invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Jarrod Haschert, a Marine stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He sent her an invite in a video posted to Facebook that had been seen more than 4.8 million times, claiming he was one of Rousey's biggest fans.



"You are my celebrity crush, like, I love everything you do and I think that you are a phenomenal person," Haschert said in his video, "which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball on December 11th. I really hope this doesn't get in the way of your training ... but I hope you take this in consideration, because if you do, you will truly be making my dream come true."

Rousey saw the video and got in touch with TMZ, telling the tabloid she would gladly accept the Marine's invite. There was one problem: She didn't have a way of getting in contact with him.

"Do I call him, do I set up a time and place like 'Never Been Kissed' and just show up and have him waiting there?" Rousey asked.

Rousey says Haschert, who is 22-years-old, is her type. She even called him "cute."

"Yeah, he's cute," Rousey, 28, said adding "He's gotta be a gentleman. I'm not a first-date kind of girl, but we'll see when I meet him."

Rousey does have one condition for the date. She says Haschert also has to find dates for three of her friends.
