“Yeah I’ll take on a guy shorter than me and twice my age – that’s how I roll,” said JB.
When Justin Bieber announced yesterday he would love to fight in the UFC, people everywhere were excited about the chance to see him get his arse kicked. That was until he announced his choice of opponent – Tom Cruise. Collectively, people and the press asked the same question, “Tom Cruise – what the fuck?”
Tom has never had a professional fight, is older, shorter, and has never even expressed an interest in fighting, so why Justin called him out is a mystery – except for the part where he thinks it’s an easy win.
Some have questioned whether there is beef between the two, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. Nor does Justin seem to hold a grudge against Scientology, so why it’s specifically Tom Cruise remains unanswered. He could have called out The Rock, Chris Hemsworth, Jason Statham – or any other action star who doesn’t need a booster seat to reach the table – but no, he has called out The Cruise.
Oddly enough though, The Cruise does some pretty ballsy stunts, so we know Tom has a good chance at flogging the bejesus out of JB. The only stunt JB did was going down a waterslide – granted the water had Nicki Minaj in it so there was definitely some risk there.
Given that CM Punk got two fights in the UFC, seeing Bieber inside the octagon may actually happen. And who knows, if they lower the steps and give him a leg up, Tom just might get in there with him.
