Ronda Rousey Keeps Her Promise To a Young Marine

As if anyone thought she wouldn’t.

Maximtold you Friday, and we were right: of course Ronda Rousey kept her promise to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert.

While the former bantamweight champ has been keeping a low profile and nursing injuries since her stunning defeat by the nicest UFC champ ever, she was in attendance at the Jarhead fest and  looked absolutely radiant.

Rousey also proved that while she’s a no-holds-barred warrior in the Octagon, when it comes to an event like this, she is a class act. Rousey didn’t just pose for a charming shot with her date, Lance Cpl Haschert, the Rowdy one happily took candid pics with a number of starry-eyed attendees.

It was a subdued evening compared to the unexpected serenade given to current champ Holly Holm by an Irishman and the entire audience at a Q&A event in Vegas. But it may be that while Rousey is easing back toward battle mode in preparation for an eventual UFC 200 re-match with Holm, a little R&R with the men and women of the United States Marine Corps is just the kind of morale booster she needs.
