In today's installment of weird celebrity news, Justin Bieber has challenged Tom Cruise to a fight.
On Sunday night (June 9), the 25-year-old superstar took to Twitter to announce that he wants to go head-to-head with the 56-year-old Hollywood titan in the UFC ring. "I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom, if you don't take this fight [you're] scared and you will never live it down," Bieber wrote in a message, before tagging Dana White, the President of the UFC. "Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite?"
Cruise has yet to respond to the challenge, but former UFC champion Conor McGregor offered to host the event. "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? Stay tuned to find out!"
