Description: While the prospect of seeing Justin Beiber and Tom Cruise throw down punches and kicks at each other was very much enticing, it is NOT going to happen.
Heart of the matter:
Twitter has seen many bouts between stars and celebrities. But most of them were mainly verbal. But this time things became weird when pop star Justin Beiber challenged actor Tom Cruise to about in the octagon without any prior context.
The tweet read,” I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to 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? @danawhite ?”
Even though the Mission: Impossible star didn’t reply to the bizarre and crazy tweet, the post spread like wildfire.

This is weird. And that’s coming from an onion that has its own Twitter account.

Justine doesn’t know the history of the Octagon. I do, I studied it! pic.twitter.com/PgQfbemEtI

MMA fighter and former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor even said he would help set up the bout if Cruise accepted the challenge.
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?

Is it going to happen?
The answer is simply no. In an interaction with TMZ, the singer clarified that he was joking. “It was a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes”, the singer said.
“I think he’d probably whoop my ass in a fight.” the pop star added.
He also thinks that Cruise would probably be out of his weight class, and would beat him because the actor probably has that ‘dad strength.’ So that’s it for this bizarre beef.
*Twitter is a weird place*
