Twitter is a battleground for beefs and verbal brawls, and now for Justin Bieber, it’s a place to challenge.
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 ?

“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your [sic] scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite?” tweeted Bieber.
(Dana White is the current president of the UFC, and as of this writing, he has not replied to Bieber’s tweet.)
UFC champ Conor McGregor chimed in after Bieber’s challenge, saying that if Cruise is “man” enough to face off with Bieber, his McGregor Sports and Entertainment would host the bout.
McGregor also offered to fight actor Mark Wahlberg, after asking if Cruise had “the sprouts to fight.”
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?

Some Twitter users were quick to post opposing stats about the two men. Bieber, 25, stands at 5’9″ while Cruise, 56, comes up short at 5’7″.

Others countered with the fact that Cruise does all of his own stunts for his movies.

Most people were just confused by the proposition, since Cruise and Bieber (as far as the public knows) have had no previous interaction.
As of this writing, Cruise hasn’t responded to Bieber’s challenge.
