    If such a Celebrity Death Match became real, what would the odds be? Some say Bieber would be the obvious winner because Cruise is more than twice his age, but others argue that the 56-year-old actor has been doing stunts and fight scenes for quite a while.

    Belieb it or not, Justin Bieber has challenged Tom Cruise to a cage fight and got the backing of Conor McGregor.

    In an almost-surreal step, the Canadian hit-maker called out Cruise (31 years his senior) on Twitter.

    “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon,” Bieber wrote. “Tom, if you don’t take this fight you’re scared and you will never live it down.”

    He then tagged UFC boss Dana White, suggesting that he could organise the bout: “Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite?”

    Within less than an hour, ultimate entrepreneur Conor McGregor weighed in, saying that he is ready to host the fight in case Tom Cruise gives the okay.

    He also jumped on the actor-hating bandwagon, challenging The Departed star Mark Wahlberg.

    Needless to say, hordes of UFC watchers as well as fans of the four men have been discussing the wild exchange between Bieber and McGregor.

    The first question is, why Cruise? Is it just a joke, is Justin not a fan of his work or, perhaps, scientology, or do they have a previously unknown beef?

    Some have pounced on the Canadian for challenging a man older than his dad.

    But others said he wasn’t quite the favourite.

    Justin was also quick to receive a playful challenge from a fan.
