Justin Bieber challenges Tom Cruise to MMA fight, Conor McGregor responds

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

Justin Bieber offered Tom Cruise out for a UFC fight on Twitter, leading to Conor McGregor offering to host the showdown if the Hollywood actor accepts.

“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the Octagon,” Bieber wrote on Twitter.

“Tom if you don’t take this fight you’re scared and you will never live it down.”

To which McGregor then added: “If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout. Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!

Bieber also requested UFC president Dana White’s help in making the fight happen, although Cruise has yet to respond.

It’s unclear why Bieber chose this exact moment to call out the 56-year-old actor, who is 31 years senior to him. But given that Cruise famously does his own stunts in his movies, it’s fair to say he’d probably be pretty decent in a scrap.
