MUSIC- Pop singer Justin Bieber insists he was just playing when he challenged Hollywood star Tom Cruise to a fight a few days ago.
Bieber had reached out to UFC boss Dana White on Twitter to ask if she would be willing to stage a bout between himself and the 'Mission: Impossible' actor.
Speaking to TMZ about his intentions to fight the 56 year old actor, Bieber said, “Nah, I was just playing. The story is I saw an interview with him, and it was just on my mind ... I don't know why I thought about it. It was just a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes."
Neither Cruise nor White had replied to Bieber’s messages but UFC champion Conor McGregor was quick to offer to host the fight instead.
