Ronda Rousey accepts ball invitation from 'cute' Marine -- on one condition

The other three "horsewomen" need dates, too.

Sorry guys, but it seems football stars and baseball players simply aren't "tough and manly enough" for Ronda Rousey to consider them as potential dates.

A United States Marine, however, is right up "Rowdy's" alley.

Serviceman Jarrod Haschert recently took a chance and posted a video inviting Rousey as his date to the Marine Corps Ball on Dec. 11, 2015. I mean, you'll never know if you can hit the homerun unless you swing the bat, right?

Watch him ask "Rowdy" to the dance right here.

Well, it seems it's Jarrod's lucky day, as Rousey recently told TMZ that she will gladly take him up on his offer. Something she is now able to do since her fight against Holly Holm -- which was originally set to go down at UFC 194 in January -- has been moved to UFC 193 in November.

That means the Judoka will be free and clear to focus on a night of dancing instead of training camp.

"The fight got moved, so I actually can go. But, I don't know how to hit him up and say like, 'Yeah, I want to go with you.' I would go for sure. But, how do I call him? Do I set up a time and place like 'Never Been Kissed' and show up and have him waiting there until the clock runs out? He's cute. He's got to be a gentleman, I'm not a first date kind of girl. We'll see when I meet him. I will totally go. Yes, it is a 'yes.' He needs to find dates for my girls, and then we'll all go."

You lucky devil.

Now, Jarrod has to do his best to get dates for the other members of "The Four Horsewomen," which consists of UFC bantamweight Jessamyn Duke, Bellator featherweight Marina Shafir, and former Octagon veteran Shayna Baszler.

You better get on it Marine, or miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.
