Canadian superstar Justin Beiber has issued a challenge on actor Tom Cruise to a fight in the octagon (UFC ring).

The tweet went viral and fighter Conor McGregor announced that his company would host the fight.
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?

McGregor also appeared to take a shot at Cruise and said the fight would only go on if he’s “man enough to accept this challenge.”
The Mission Impossible star did not comment on the posts, but it appeared that many on social media believe Cruise would knock down the singer with ease.
Cruise stands at 5ft 7in and weighs 77 kilograms. He is famous for doing most of his own stunts and maintaining an enviable physique. He appears ready and willing to fight on screen and often does so while falling from a plane.
Bieber reportedly has two inches on Cruise but weighs just 66kg, according to reports.
