Last summer, Marine Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert asked Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball. While random requests such as that tend to go unaddressed, the UFC star responded and accepted the invitation.

Having suffered a rough loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 not long before, the ball was exactly what Rousey needed.

Rousey stayed true to her word even after losing the fight and attended December's ball with Haschert. As much fun as they had during the night's main event, perhaps the most entertaining part of their evening came after the ball, when they went to Hooters.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 29-year-old UFC star revealed she got into an amusing argument with one of the workers at the restaurant—about herself. As the employee praised the fighter, Rousey had fun ripping herself before ultimately revealing she was just messing around. The result: free wings.
