Pop star Justin Bieber is making noise about wanting to fight Tom Cruise, sending out a tweet Sunday challenging the actor to meet him in the octagon.
You can see Bieber’s tweet below.
“For a yet-to-be-explained reason, the pop star, 25, took to Twitter on Sunday night to challenge the action-movie star, 56, to a fight,” the Los Angeles Times reports. “And the Internet’s collective response was: ‘Why, though?’”
The Times adds that “while no sane person is taking this proposal seriously, there seems to be some interest from the fighting world. UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes tweeted a shocked face. UFC Canada’s Twitter account also tweeted out interested googly eyes.”
The report also notes: “MMA champion and professional troublemaker Conor McGregor upped the ante by tweeting that his agency/company, McGregor Sports and Entertainment, would host the fight if Cruise is ‘man enough to accept [Bieber’s] challenge.’ McGregor then challenged actor Mark Wahlberg to the exact same fight.”
