The 25-year-old pop star invited the actor to a mixed martial arts fight in the Octagon, the UFC ring. “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?”, Bieber said on Twitter.
Former UFC champion Conor McGregor offered to host the fight. “Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?”, he tweeted.
Cruise is famous for performing his own daring stunts in the “Mission: Impossible” action franchise, where he climbs the highest building in the world or hangs off the side of a speeding plane. He has not yet publicly responded to Bieber’s request.
In 2013, Bieber was pictured celebrating with American Floyd Mayweather after he outboxed Saul Canelo Alvarez to take the Mexican’s WBA and WBC super welterweight titles by majority decision in Las Vegas.
