Video: Jarrod Haschert reacts to news that Ronda Rousey will be his date for Marine Corps Ball

I grew up thinking every Marine was like Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Highway, so this video takes some getting used to.

Nevertheless, star-struck serviceman Jarrod Haschert was fortunate enough to get Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in December.

Let's hope she's coming off a win, or "Rowdy" could be a real party pooper.

Haschert insists he'll have no trouble meeting her one stipulation: Finding dates for Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir, and Jessamyn Duke, her "horsewomen" stablemates.

I wonder if this tour of booty can be considered a charitable tax write off?

The promotion has always been active with the armed forces and frequently holds "Fight Night" events for the troops. While there won't be any fisticuffs at this event (we hope), it would still be funny to hear it emceed by Bruce Buffer and have each dance called by Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan.

Like when that too-soon grab for the ass gets swatted away.
