Having got all fearless the other day, the singer decided, weirdly, to challenge Tom Cruise to a UFC fight - and now he's backed right out of it.
The 25-year-old singer tweeted Sunday that he wanted to battle against the 56-year-old actor in what appeared to be a joking taunt.
"Man. I was just playing", Bieber told TMZ reporters, "it was just a random tweet I'm pretty sure Tom would probably whoop my ass in a fight".
FANS looking forward to fisticuffs between Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise can kiss their dreams goodbye. I for one have to say I am truly disappointed. "I'd have to get in some good shape".
On Monday morning, Justin took to Twitter to invite Tom to brawl in the famed Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon. "He's tight. The story is I saw an interview with him, and he was just on my mind". I'm really skinny. I think he's be out of my weight class.
"If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, Mcgregor sports and entertainment will host the bout".
The challenge raised many eyebrows because it was immediately clear that Cruise, who famously does his own death-defying movie stunts, would have the upper hand.
"Stay tuned to find out!" the Irishman said.Conor McGregor said his company would gladly host the fight.
Meanwhile, this challenge did not settle well with Twitterati who mostly laughed off Bieber's proposition.
