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.


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.

It would be quite the fight between the 25-year-old Bieber who weighs 145.5 pounds at 5’9” and Tom Cruise, a 56-year-old who stands at 5’7” and weighs 148 according to HealthyCeleb.com.

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.
