Dana White: If Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise want to fight each other, ‘we can talk’

New, comments

UFC president Dana White says he is open to having a conversation with both Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber about a possible fight.

Last week, pop star Justin Bieber made the MMA headlines when he challenged Tom Cruise for a fight via Twitter. The said news grew more traction when Conor McGregor volunteered to host the said bout.

UFC president Dana White eventually got hold of the said post, which he gave a response to during an interview on Guerilla Cross Radio.

“I didn’t know if it was real or not. I still don’t know if it’s real,” White said (transcript by MMA Mania). “Everybody is talking about it, but Justin hasn’t contacted me.

“Listen, first of all, maybe Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise for whatever reason. I highly doubt Tom Cruise wants to fight Justin Bieber. I’m 50, I think Tom Cruise is 56. I don’t think anyone who’s 56 is looking to fight anybody.

“But I’ll tell you this, if Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise, and Tom Cruise wants to fight Justin Bieber, we can talk,” he added.

Bieber, however, already dropped the callout a few days ago, stating he would probably get his ass whooped by Cruise’s “dad strength.”
