But the famous UFC fighter is laying out some rules first.

In a video taken by Splash News Online, Rousey is asked by the interviewer what she thinks about a video that's gone viral on Facebook, which shows U.S. Marine Jarrod Haschert asking her to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in December.

"You are my celebrity crush," Haschert proclaims in the video, which has millions of views. "I love everything that you do. I think that you are a phenomenal person, which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball. I really hope this doesn't get in the way of your training for your next fight, but I hope you take this in consideration, because if you do, you would truly be making my dream come true."

In her interview, Rousey tells a reporter that she'd be happy to be Haschert's date, but under one condition.

"I saw screenshots of it, but I thought, 'I can't go anyway because I'm in camp, but the fight got moved. So I actually can go, but I don't know how to hit him up and say, 'Yeah, I would go with you,'" Rousey said. The catch? "He's cute! But he's got to be a gentleman. I'm not a first date kind of a girl."

Sounds reasonable for a date, right?

Rousey continues on to turn the camera on her three friends and say she expects Haschert to find dates for her girls, too. But we're sure he knows plenty of other eligible Marines, so that should be no problem.
