Justin Bieber unexpectedly challenged Tom Cruise for a fight

Justin Bieber, 25, made something strange: he has challenged Tom Cruise, 56, to a UFC-style cage fight.

He wrote: "I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don't take this fight your (sic) scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight?" Bieber also tweeted UFC president Dana White, asking for help setting up the fight. It was however unclear what prompted Bieber to issue the challenge. Conor McGregor and boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya - who now runs Golden Boy Boxing - both offered to host the event.

The controversial tweet has gone viral. It has over 19,000 retweets and more than 90,000 likes. Some people posting pointed out that Bieber should be picking a fight in his own age and weight class if he seriously wants to do this. Bieber and Tom Cruise ? There's no clear link between the two public personas since they round different social circles. Asking for a fight may be one of the most bizarre actions from the pop star. This is getting serious.
