Well, okay then. Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise.
A major pop music star with over 100 million Twitter followers, Bieber took to the platform to call out the movie icon Cruise on Sunday evening. According to the tweet, Bieber is trying to get UFC President Dana White to promote the fight.
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 10, 2019
It should come as no surprise that neither man has any semblance of experience in MMA. At 56-years old, Cruise would likely face major issues even getting licensed to fight as is. That doesn't mean that each man is without experience at all, though.
Cruise actually was an amateur wrestler decades ago at Glen Ridge High, but never went beyond that point outside of some martial arts training for movie roles. Bieber has been seen doing some pretty terrible boxing, and at one time was rumored to have trained in jiu jitsu briefly.
As if things couldn't get any weirder, Conor McGregor chimed in and offered to host the bout.

Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?
