One man is determined to get an invitation to the Marine Ball – and so far he’s let over 700,000 people know.

After former U.S. Army Ranger-turned-entertainer Mat Best saw that UFC champ Ronda Rousey accepted an invitation to the ball after a U.S. marine courageously asked, he decided to go for it as well.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, Best says that although “it’s freaking awesome” that Rousey got invited, he wants to attend it too.

“What I would like to ask is, hey I want a date,” he says about the November 10th event. “So, any of you marines hunks that have been fighting freedom for so long, I will be your date.”
