Earlier this week, Justin Bieber confused us all when he tweeted "I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon".

It started when Bieber shot off a tweet and challenged Cruise to a fight.

When asked if he really intends to fight Tom, 56, Justin said: "Nah, I was just playing".

Justin also told the paparazzi that it was just a random thought that popped into his head while watching an interview of Cruise's and thought it was amusing enough to share with his followers. "I do the stuff sometimes", Justin said in video posted by TMZ. "@danawhite?" the 'What Do You Mean?' singer wrote on June 9, tagging UFC president Dana White. "Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down", Justin tweeted on Sunday. I'm pretty sure he'd whoop my a** in a fight. Who is willing to put on the fight? He said he'd "have to get in shape" first. I'm really skinny right now.

Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise.

He added: "I think he'd probably be out of my weight class. Because he's big, you know he's got that dad strength".

Cruise - who shares daughter Suri, 13, with ex-wife Katie Holmes and son Connor, 24, and daughter Isabella, 26, with ex-wife Nicole Kidman - is known for his athletic prowess, often completing his own death-defying stunts on his film sets. Conor McGregor, after offering to host the Bieber vs Cruise match, singled out Mark Wahlberg as a celebrity that he would like to be given the opportunity to smack the tar out of. Biebs made it clear that he didn't actually want to fight Tom Cruise and his facial expression makes it all the more clear.

"Stay tuned to find out!" the Irishman said.
