If you woke up on Monday morning and checked your social media, you might have seen both Tom Cruise and Justin Bieiber trending.
This is because the 25 year old pop star challenged the 56 year old film legend to a mixed martial arts fight. Tweet below.
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? @danawhite ?— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 10, 2019
If I’m MMA boss, Dana White, I’m on the phone with Bieber’s representatives and I’m asking him if he’s serious.
If he’s serious, I’m on the phone with Cruises people and asking him if I would do it.
And I’m donating the proceeds to charity.
This would be great for mixed martial arts. Some of the purists would be critical of the decision, but you surround the Bieber vs. Cruise with a real card of your best fighters. Everyone wins.
If Cruise doesn’t want to do it, find someone else.
“Well, Tom Cruise won’t do it. How about a Nicholas Cage? Vince Vaughn?”
If we’re being realistic, Bieber probably just got bored and sent this tweet out. It will be old news about a half an hour after I hit “publish” on this article.
But these high profile celebrity fights are good for the sport.
And I think Bieber would beat Cruise, but that’s another write-up.
