- Justin Bieber just challenged Tom Cruise to an MMA fight over Twitter. Yes, really.
- No one can really figure out how it came about or why he picked Tom Cruise, but Justin also asked Dana White, the president of the UFC, to host the match.
Buckle up, kids, because this might be the most random bit of celebrity news you’ll read this year. Justin Bieber just challenged Tom Cruise to an MMA fight…over Twitter. No, that wasn’t Mad Libs. That is a real thing that just happened.
Here’s the tweet, which Justin posted last night.
‘I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don’t take this fight, your [sic] scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @DanaWhite?’
If you’re not totally up on the major players in the fighting world (don’t blame you), White is the president of the UFC, aka Ultimate Fighting Championship. So basically, Justin is challenging Tom while also asking White to host the whole thing. And it’s a big ??? situation.

People on Twitter are very, very confused about this whole thing, which is understandable.
‘Why Tom Cruise out of all people?’ one person wrote. ‘Are u high,’ another asked, which…yeah. Valid question. But most importantly, there’s a section of people who hopped into the comments to fiercely defend and advocate for Tom Cruise, which might be the most confusing thing in this scenario.
‘I think Tom Cruise may be able to mess Bieber up,’ one person wrote. And get a load of this one: ‘Not only is Tom Cruise an unbeatable machine of strength and speed, but he’s also insane and completely undeterred by the fear of death. Good luck, Justin.’ Another even more enthusiastic supporter wrote, ‘Tom Cruise was an all-state wrestler in high school and has been training for over 30 years…You can’t eat a burrito correctly….Sit down Biebs.’
FWIW, that burrito thing was a prank, so Justin probably does know how to eat a burrito correctly. But yeah…bet you didn’t know Twitter was full of Tom Cruise stans, did ya?
