Ronda Rousey made good on her promise Friday night when she attended the Marine Corps Ball with a Marine who invited her to be his guest back in August. Many expected that in the wake of her loss to Holly Holm that the UFC fighter might not show. Ronda Rousey has been taking it easy since the knockout, recovering from her injuries.

Despite those injuries, however, Ronda Rousey was stunning at the Marine Corps Ball in a loose-fitting black formal gown. She shared a photo of herself along with her handsome date on Instagram.

"Thank you Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert for taking me to the Marine Corps Ball, being such a gentleman, and putting a smile on my face again 🙏🏼" she captioned it.

Ronda Rousey recently told TMZ that this has been her "worst month ever."

The UFC fighter posed for pictures with her date, and appeared to be having a wonderful time.

Prior to the Marine Corps Ball on Friday, Ronda Rousey admitted getting out for the event would probably be good for her.

She added that it was "an honor to be asked and honestly, I probably would stay on my couch crying and eating ice cream for like another month if he didn't ask me to go."

Seeing Ronda Rousey's broad smile--in addition to that of her date--is a clear indication that both parties involved had a spectacular time.

Can you imagine the stories Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert will tell in the years to come? After all, who gets to take Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball?

This guy did.
