Pop superstar Justin Bieber recently announced he was taking a break from touring to focus on his personal life and “repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have.” We don’t know how the whole self-improvement thing is going, but it certainly isn’t stopping the 25 year old from trolling it up a little on social media.
In the midst of dropping surprise new singles (one of which is with Ed Sheeran, if you’re into that kind of thing), Bieber threw this oddball call out up on Twitter:
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
”I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon,” Bieber wrote. “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?”
Those who have followed MMA news for years know this is far from the first time the Biebs has turned up in their UFC news. From dancing onstage with Anderson Silva to trash talking the Diaz brothers (bad move, bro), there was a solid 2-3 years where Justin just kept turning up in my goddamn MMA news feed. Then he moved on to being buds with Floyd Mayweather for a while and who knows where the kid’s at these days.
Most likely, this is just an attention grabbing stunt designed to get people talking about Bieber and the new music he’s about to drop. But who knows? Maybe he’s serious. They laughed at Conor McGregor too when he said he wanted to box Floyd Mayweather. Yet six months later, McGregor stepped into the ring and made it to the 10th round with the boxing GOAT, pocketing over $75 million in the process.
I’m just saying anything is possible if you Beliebe hard enough. Bieber vs. Cruise at UFC 250. Make it happen, Dana. Or if Cruise is too busy, don’t you have a certain pro wrestler on the roster just lookin’ for a fight?
And speaking of attention hungry social media megastars, it didn’t take long for Conor McGregor to jump in...
If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge,— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) June 10, 2019
McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.
Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?
