The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is no stranger to controversy. Take for instance, the aftermath of 2018’s UFC match between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. That was indeed one of the most insane moments in sports history! Don’t you agree?

Well, if pop singer Justin Bieber’s recent tweet (provocation?) is any indication, things may be getting a whole lot weirder for 2019 as far as celebrity feuds are concerned.

Imagine that … Justin Bieber versus Tom Cruise!

That sounds like a dream match if you ask me. Well, maybe if it was for “Celebrity Deathmatch”, a stop-motion animation parody series that originally aired from 1998 to 2001 on MTV!

For reasons unknown, the 25-year-old singer challenged the 56-year-old Hollywood star to a fight.

“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon,” Bieber tweeted. “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?”

If you’re wondering who Dana White is, he’s the head honcho of the UFC, which is the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organisation.

Meanwhile, former UFC champion McGregor was totally down for the Bieber vs Cruise fight.

“If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout,” McGregor tweeted. “Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”

McGregor (being the man who we have all gotten accustomed to) also could not help but to call out Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg.

According to an Express report, McGregor has long been vocal about his desire to own a stake in the UFC, first declaring his intentions after defeating Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt in 2016. Wahlberg is one of many celebrities who own UFC shares, after the company was sold by Dana White and the Fertitta brothers – Lorenzo and Frank – back in 2016.

As far as I’m concerned, Bieber’s recent fight challenge has got to be one of the most random tweets he’s ever published.
