Justin Bieber may have spoken too soon and felt a little too confident.. we’ve all been there right? In the heat of the moment agreeing to something then actually thinking.. hmm maybe this isn’t for me.. well this has happened for the ‘Sorry’ singer.
Strangely, to everyones surprise and confusion, the popstar challenged Tom Cruise to a UFC fight… but his bravery didn’t last that long…
Tagging in the President of UFC, Dana White, 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 ?

Then, obviously Conor McGregor had a say in the matter egging Tom to take him up on his offer so that he could host it.
Honeslty, no one knows where all of this came from and i don’t think we’ll ever truly know..
Saying that, Bieber has probably had a few days now to think about the fight and has done a little u-turn shall we say.
When leaving wife Hailey Baldwin’s fashion line office in LA the star was asked about the bizarre fight invitation.
“Man… I was just playing, it was just a random tweet I’m pretty sure Tom would probably whoop my ass in a fight.
“I’d have to get super in shape, I’m really skinny right now.
“I think he’d probably be out of my weight class. He’s got that dad strength.”
We will never truly know if he purely ‘chickened out’ or really was messing around. Either way the whole thing was a little strange.
