"I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the Octagon. Tom if you don't take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight."
The musician's tweet immediately caught the attention of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Conor Mcgregor, who approved of the bout and even offered his company's services in hosting the clash.

Bieber goaded Cruise, warning the Mission Impossible action star that not accepting the fight would make him a coward in his eyes forever.
"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!" the Irishman said.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion then took the opportunity to call out Mark Wahlberg.
The UFC fighter told the actor he would still have knocked him out back when he was a young rapper.
"I challenge Mark Wahlberg on the very same card."
"Back when Mark Wahlberg was Marky Mark, I would've still slapped the ears off him and took my UFC shares back," McGregor said.
