UFC Hollywood showdown is up for cards, as Justin Bieber has agreed to fight Tom Cruise during a secret phone call.
The showdown has been going back and forth for some time now.
Justin had two weeks ago tweeted that he would like to take Tom on MMA style. He wrote:
“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?”
At first, Bieber simply dismissed the Tweet as a joke but now it seems as though this fight could actually be a reality as it has been reported by TMZ that Bieber actually agreed to the bout.
According to TMZ, Ari Emanuel, called Justin’s manager las Friday, and then conferenced in Dana White. Ari said this would be an epic fight that needed to happen, and Dana chimed in that he was “100%” down with it.
Scooter is said to have made it clear that Justin would absolutely fight if Tom wanted to do it.
During the call, Ari also stated that he strongly believed the 56-year-old actor would agree to enter the Octagon and take on the 25-year-old singer.
The fight would certainly be an interesting one although it might be a little one-sided when you consider the fact that Cruise is 31 years older than Justin. Bieber is 25 years old, while Cruise is 56. At 5’9″ Bieber is actually two inches taller than Cruise which would certainly be an advantage when it comes to reaching in the Octagon.
Dana White, has previously spoken about the bout – which would surely eclipse even the astonishing popularity of the 2018 fight between YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul.
The MMA boss said: “So I’m gonna tell you something interesting, obviously, this thing came out – lots of people will talk about fighting somebody in the UFC, things like that.
“Whether it’s NFL players, or celebrities or whatever, it happens a lot. So obviously I saw it like everybody else did and I didn’t pay much attention to it.
