Talks supposedly on between Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise for UFC fight
What are the chances that 25-year old pop star Justin Bieber will actually fight Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise? We think chances are at about zero percent.
Let's get real for a second. There is no way 56-year-old Cruise is going to allow Bieber anywhere near his hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office face.
The 25-year-old pop icon challenged Cruise via his personal Twitter account and said: “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon,” Bieber, 25, tweeted on Sunday. “Tom if you dont take this fight your [sic] scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?”

Now, Dana White, the guy behind UFC, has come out with outrageous statements claiming that talks between the two celebrities' reps have taken place.
TMZ reports that Ari Emanuel, the co-CEO of the William Morris Endeavor agency that owns UFC -- called Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, and then conferenced in Dana White. The word is that the executives want this to happen and UFC is 100% down with it.
But there's no word on if Tom Cruise is even interested or knows about this ridiculous challenge.
Considering Bieber then told TMZ he "was just playing" and "pretty sure Tom would...I think he would...he would probably whoop my ass."
This is one rumour we're calling bullsh*t early.
