For some bizarre reason, international pop star Justin Bieber has thrown a challenge to actor Tom Cruise.
Bieber wants to fight Cruise in an MMA bout, and it appears he already has promotional interest.
The international pop star took to Twitter on Sunday night to challenge Cruise, the star of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise (and countless other blockbuster movies), to a fight “in the octagon” and openly asked who would be prepared to stage the bout.
Taking to Twitter, the 25-year-old singer wrote, “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don’t take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?”
For those who do not know Dana White, he is the head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization. However, no one seems to know as to why the 25-year-old singer wants to take on the 56-year-old actor known for doing his own stunts.
Former UFC champ Conor McGregor is also in; offering to host if Cruise is game.
“If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout,” McGregor tweeted. “Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?”
The “Top Gun” and “Mission Impossible” actor is known for doing his own stunts.
It’s unclear why Bieber wants to take on Cruise, or if he really does. Maybe he was just bored on a Sunday.
Well, neither of their representatives has commented.
