After going three long rounds with Ashley Hunt at Hardrock MMA 96 this past Saturday night in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, the exhausted Jesse Romans got down on one knee. No, not because he was gassed from the nine minutes of action prior but because he did something remarkable. He proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Annie Helton.
She said, yes! When Romans got down on one knee the crowd inside the Paroquet Springs Conference Center began clapping and joined in on their special moment. It’s not often that you see a fighter during the post-fight interview propose to his or her significant other.
Romans came up short that night in the fight with Hunt, but he truly won the evening.
The future Mrs. Roman’s took to Facebook to share with the world their memorable evening:
A day i’ll never forget. So happy to take the next step in our lives and so happy to spend the rest of my life with my soulmate. Through all the good and all the bad,, i wouldn’t pick any other person to share this journey with. I love you so much. I love our family. 💖
From everyone at BluegrassMMA, we truly wish you two the best. Congratulations.
