As we previously reported, Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert asked Rousey to his Marine Corps Ball earlier this summer in a video that went viral -- but to his surprise, she accepted the offer.
But that was before UFC fighter Travis Browne went public about his relationship with Rousey -- declaring on Monday, "She's my woman and I am her man."
So, we hit up Haschert about the news that Ronda's spoken for -- to which he simply replied, "Damn. I really hope she doesn't back out."
BTW, Haschert is such a gentleman, that when we jokingly asked if he'd consider fighting Browne over Ronda, he told us, "That would be a tough fight! She's a great woman with an amazing personality. I'm sure he's a great guy."
The ball is set to go down in December -- stay tuned.
