Earlier in the week, with absolutely no context, the Prince of Pop tweeted saying he wanted to take on Tom Cruise in a fight.
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 ?

The tweet left fans baffled and people began looking for possible reasons for the random tweet - even Conor McGregor got involved by showing his support:
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! https://t.co/TxsH9KUyFg

But after days of speculation, Biebs confirmed yesterday that he was just joking and he knows that if he did take on the Mission Impossible star he would get his a** handed to him.
When questioned by paparazzi about the potential fight Justin said he had just watched an interview with Tom Cruise and the idea randomly came into his head.
Honestly, we're a little disappointed.
