When I was a lonely boy working on a vineyard in some remote area of the world, I’d often cheer myself up by watching his best trash talking videos.
His quote about “red panty night” is legendary.
These days I genuinely am into the sport – in fact, I watched UFC 238 this past weekend. Sure, it was great, but it would have been infinitely better had Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise gone toe to toe.
You may think that’s crazy talk, but the celeb match-up inside the octagon may happen yet, as Bieber has challenged the famous Scientologist to a fight.
The pop star had earlier tweeted to fans promising that new music was on the way, but confused them with a later post that said: “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the Octagon.
“Tom if you don’t take this fight you’re scared and you will never live it down.”
He then tagged UFC president Dana White in the post urging him to make it happen.
What’s he got against Tom Cruise? Have they had previous before?
It seems like a strange call-out.
Nevertheless, the challenge sparked a frenzy on social media, and now everyone wants it to happen.
But get this: Conor Mcgregor then chimed in saying he’ll host the bout.
It’s like something from the WWE!
If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout. Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”
In the spirit of Bieber’s original message, the fighter then took the opportunity to take aim at Mark Wahlberg, writing: “I challenge Mark Walhberg [sic] on the very same card. Back when Mark Wahlberg was marky mark, I’d have still slapped the ears off him and took my UFC shares back (sic).”
It’s not the first time McGregor has famously challenged Mark Wahlberg to a fight either.
Back in April, The Notorious posted a series of tweets, which said: “I’ve decided to challenge Hollywood actress Mark Wahlberg next. A fight for all the shares!
“I’ll smack him and his 4 brothers around.
“It wouldn’t be the first crew of brothers I’ve smacked around. Check the history books. The UFC history books.”
Honestly, I haven’t got a clue why all this is happening.
Isn’t Bieber really religious as well? Doesn’t seem very Christian calling people out for a fight.
If you ask me, though, Biebs is barking up the wrong tree; TC does all his own stunts and he’s got a whole load of crazy behind those eyes.
I’d stay well clear.

Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent writer, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. He subsequently honed his writing skills over the course of several sex-related articles, bringing a very public shame to his family's good name.
