Justin Bieber Challenged Tom Cruise To A Fight
Nobody saw this one coming. Singer Justin Bieber has just challenged one of the biggest action stars of the past few decades in a 2019 equivalent of an old-timey Hamilton/Burr-style duel: Bieber just challenged Tom Cruise to a fight in the “octagon” on Twitter.
The octagon is the ring where Mixed Martial Arts bouts take place hosted by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). According to the UFC website, MMA is “a full-contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques and skills from a mixture of other combat sports to be used in competition.” Bieber seemed serious enough to even tag Dana White, the president of the UFC, in his tweet.
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
There’s no clear reason in his tweet of why Bieber has offered up such a challenge to Ethan Hunt from “Mission Impossible” himself, but nevertheless, the Twittersphere is already happy to jump in and spur the fight into reality.

Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?
Stay tuned to find out! https://t.co/TxsH9KUyFg
Conor McGregor, a wiry and successful UFC champ asked if Cruise had “the sprouts” to accept the challenge, while Bobby Nash, another UFC fighter called him out on challenging a 56-year-old. Other Twitter users were incredulous and many just made fun of poor Biebs.
It seems as though Tom Cruise is still quiet on the subject so far, but watch this space to see if it really happens.
