BIZARRE: Justin Bieber Challenges Tom Cruise To Fight ‘In The Octagon’
Justin Bieber just entered the Twilight Zone.
The 25-year-old pop star posted a bizarre tweet on Sunday challenging actor Tom Cruise to a fight.
“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 wrote.

The tweet quickly went viral and mixed martial arts fighter and promoter Conor McGregor announced that his company would gladly host the fight. McGregor followed Bieber in challenging Cruise, saying the fight can take place only if he’s “man enough to accept this 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?

The 56-year-old mega-superstar “Mission Impossible” actor — who famously does all of his own stunts — has not commented on the post. But one bookie group, Odds Shark, said, “We don’t like your odds, Justin.”
Bieber has been getting weirder and weirder. In April he announced that he would take a break from performing so he could repair “deep rooted issues.”
“I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart,” the singer said in March. “So that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health.”
Twitter, as it is wont to do, had a field day with the Bieber tweet.

Tom Cruise was an all state wrestler in high school and has been training for over thirty years…
You can’t eat a burrito correctly…
Sit down Biebs.
