This isn’t exactly professional wrestling news, but it’s the kind of story that not even WWE could write.
Justin Bieber has challenged Tom Cruise to a professionl MMA fight and, of all people, Conor McGregor wants to promote the spectacle.
Bieber is what Bieber is. A pop star with 100 million followers and some decent music that gets stuck in your head from time to time. He’s got a huge platform and, for some reason, a beef with actor Tom Cruise.
Cruise, meanwhile, is a huge movie star but not someone immune to controversy. Considered one of the strangest actors in the world, he was a big player in Scientology and his millions of followers are diehard fans is nothing to sneeze at.
So, you can bet, Bieber’s call out will get some attention. He said, “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to a fight in the octagon. 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?”
He then tagged UFC President Dana White.
Conor McGregor Wants To Promote Bieber vs. Cruise
Neither White nor Cruise have responded, but one person who did was Conor McGregor. The former UFC fighter was quick to get on the train and see an opportunity.
He tweeted, “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?”
Not done, McGregor then challenged Mark Whalberg on the very same card. He said, “Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back.”
While we know McGregor would probably destroy Whalberg, we’re not so sure about Cruise not whipping little Biebs into oblivion. Cruise isn’t young and he probably wouldn’t get cleared with a card to actually fight though…
So, maybe this is better meant for a WWE ring.
