If it’s not a minor league baseball player leaving a ticket every game at will call for UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, it’s a Marine asking her out on a date.

On Tuesday, Rousey made Jarrod Haschert’s dream come true, telling TMZ Sports that she will accept his invitation to the U.S. Marine Corps Ball on Dec. 11.

Luckily for Haschert, Rousey’s next scheduled title defense against Holly Holm was moved from Jan. 2, 2016, to Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 14. Had Rousey still been set to fight early next year, she would have been forced to miss the ball while in the heart of training camp.

“I’ll go, for sure,” Rousey told TMZ. “He’s cute. I saw a screen shot of it and thought, ‘I can’t go anyway because I’ll be in camp.’ But now I actually can go.”

There is a catch, though — Jarrod has to find three dates for the other three members of the Four Horsewomen (Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir). That shouldn’t be a problem for Haschert.
