Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise in an MMA bout and it appears he already has promotional interest!
They really don't make movie stars like Tom Cruise anymore. He loves and knows more about cinema than pretty much everyone involved in his films, he'll do anything to make the movie as good as possible including training over a year to know how to fight properly with a sword pic.twitter.com/966UWMKpNu

Bieber took it to Twitter on Sunday night to challenge the Hollywood star Cruise, to a fight in the octagon and openly asked who would be prepared to stage the bout.
“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?”
UFC superstar Conor McGregor not only said he’d be keen to host the event on a “McGregor Sports and Entertainment” card, but he’d also challenge Mark Wahlberg on the same card for his stake in the UFC.
“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? Stay tuned to find out!”
“I challenge Mark Walhberg on the very same card. Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back.”
McGregor isn’t the only figure from the combat sports world to show an interest. Boxing promoter Oscar De La Hoya also is keen, apparently. Former UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg got in on the action, too.
As for the potential matchup itself, there has been no word from Cruise regarding Bieber’s challenge.
