It even trickled into the MMA sphere because Bieber said he wants to fight Cruise in the Octagon and tagged UFC president Dana White in his tweet. Tom if you don't take this fight your (sic) scared and you will never live it down.
UFC champ Conor McGregor chimed in after Bieber's challenge, saying that if Cruise is "man" enough to face off with Bieber, his McGregor Sports and Entertainment would host the bout.
"Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight?" he inquired, while also offering his own company's services to host the match-up. "Stay tuned to find out!" he tweeted.

"I challenge Mark Wahlberg on the very same card", McGregor added.
Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I'd've still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back. Some say Bieber would be the obvious victor because Cruise is more than twice his age, but others argue that the 56-year-old actor has been doing stunts and fight scenes for quite a while.
To sweeten the pot, McGregor has also offered to fight Mark Wahlberg as part of the undercard.
"Just for the record, Bieber stands 5' 9", while Cruise comes in just below that at 5' 7". The 56-year-old American is known for his roles in movies such as "Mission: Impossible", "Top Gun", "Rain Man", and "Jerry Maguire".
