Yes… You Read That Headline Right… Justin Bieber Has Challenged Tom Cruise to an MMA Fight and Conor McGregor is Ready to Jump on Board With McGregor Promotions… Oh And The Notorious Wants to Beat Mark Wahlberg on the Same Card…
Conor McGregor has a lot of free time these days, so unsurprisingly he spends a lot of time on Twitter. The Irishman hasn’t fought since getting battered by Khabib Nurmagamedov last October. However, now he’s jumped at the chance to play MMA matchmaker for a change with what would be a truly ridiculous celebrity booking.
Justin Bieber is one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. The Canadian has a massive following of obsessed young female fans. Followers of the 25-year-old might be surprised to learn that he’s a 2nd-degree karate black belt and we also believe that he is a purple belt under the 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu system.
He might be in over his own head right now though. He’s called out one of the world’s most famous action movie stars in Tom Cruise and wants to fight the Hollywood legend and Mission Impossible star in an MMA fight. Oh and Conor McGregor wants to promote it. Classify it under never going to happen but we would definitely watch it.

We have no idea why, but for some reason, Bieber decided to call out the biggest action movie star of his generation, Tom Cruise. Bear in mind, at the age of 56, the man who played Ethan Hunt and Jack Reacher is more than twice Bieber’s age. We still wouldn’t bet against him though. Bieber tweeted.
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?
I’ve decided to challenge Hollywood actress Mark Walhberg next.
A fight for all the shares!

Who would win this ‘fight?’ Cruise might be closer to 60 than 50 now, but he’s still in remarkable shape and a genuinely tough guy. He insists on doing as many of his own stunts as possible, infamously shattering his ankle while making Mission Impossible 6.
Cruise also wrestled in high school, as well as being a linebacker on his football team. What’s more is that he has a lot of training for action movies, including the Keysi fighting system. It might not be professional MMA standard, but it’s surely enough to beat Bieber up. Anyway, they’ve got themselves a promoter if they want one as an opportunistic Conor McGregor tweeted:
“If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.

McGregor also took the opportunity to call out another action movie star in Mark Wahlberg. He has a personal grievance with the Hollywood actor because he wants some of his WME-IMG shares – the consortium that owns the UFC. He tweeted:
“I’ve decided to challenge Hollywood actress Mark Wahlberg next. A fight for all the shares! I’ll smack him and his 4 brothers around. It wouldn’t be the first crew of brothers I’ve smacked around. Check the history books. The UFC history books.”
All we can say is someone needs to take McGregor’s phone away.
