Justin Bieber admits Tom Cruise fight was hoax ‘as he would whoop my ass’
Justin Bieber has backtracked on his fight challenge to Tom Cruise admitting he was 'only joking'.
The 25-year-old pop star may be less that half the age of 56-year-old Hollywood legend Cruise, but Bieber has admitted he would 'get his ass whooped' if the fight actually happened.
Biebs whipped up a storm after offering Cruise to stop in to the 'octagon' with him and even asked the Ultimate Fighting Championship President to 'put on the fight'.
During an impromptu interview with TMZ, as he entered a vehicle in Los Angeles, Bieber said that he was 'only joking' and that he was 'just being random'.
Hailey Baldwin's husband said: "Naw…I was just joking. It was just a random tweet."
Justin admitted that the idea had come to mind after he watched the Mission: Impossible star in action and threw the idea out to the world but he never had any intention of facing down the actor in a cage.
Biebs explained: "The story is…I saw an interview with him. He was on my mind."
He went on to admit that it could have been a little one-sided, quipping: "I'm pretty sure Tom would whoop my ass in the fight. I'd have to get in some good shape.
"He's out of my weight class. He's got that dad strength. Love you Tommy."
While UFC president Dana White never responded to Justin's offer, the dangling carrot was seized upon by former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, Colin McGregor.
He re-tweeted Justin's original post, adding: "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!"
Sprouts or not, it doesn't matter now as it seems that that the cage fight of the year is off before it ever really started.
