Justin Bieber challenges Tom Cruise to UFC cage fight

WATCH: Justin Bieber started a whirlwind of confusion on Sunday night when he tweeted out his desire to fight Tom Cruise in the UFC octagon

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

On Sunday night, the world-famous superstar challenged A-list actor Tom Cruise to a “fight in the octagon” — a UFC-style battle — for no apparent reason.

“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.”

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.

Over the last few months, Bieber has been relatively under the radar, launching his own all-natural deodorant line and collaborating with artists like Gucci Mane and Ed Sheeran.

As of this writing, Cruise hasn’t responded to Bieber’s challenge.
