Justin Bieber was joking about fight with Tom Cruise: ‘I’m pretty sure he would whoop my a**’

Justin Bieber is walking back his fight challenge to Tom Cruise.

On Sunday, the pop superstar, 25, took to Twitter to provoke the actor, 56, into facing him in the ‘octogon’ and asked the Ultimate Fighting Championship President to ‘put on the fight’.

But the husband of Hailey Baldwin admitted he was only ‘joking’ during an impromptu interview in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

‘Naw… I was just joking. It was just a random tweet,’ he told TMZ as he rocked a tee with an image of Drew Barrymore from E.T. on it.

The idea for the fisticuffs fantasy popped up after Justin had just seen a video of the Mission: Impossible star.

‘The story is… I saw an interview with him. He was on my mind,’ the Sorry singer explained.

And he even admitted the bout might be a bad idea as action star Tom is known to  keep in great shape for his films.   

‘I’m pretty sure Tom would whoop my as** in the fight,’ he quipped. ‘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,’ he added with a smile.

Even though the challenge was a hoax and Dana White – the UFC President  – never responded, another UFC legend took the bait.

Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, Colin McGregor, volunteered to host after spotting the challenge on social media that same day.

After re-tweeting Justin’s post, he added: ‘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!’

No word yet on Justin’s wardrobe choice for the day and if he stans for Drew Barrymore or the Steven Spielberg classic E.T from 1982.

Meanwhile, Justin’s lovely partner Hailey was spotted out in Los Angeles on Wednesday as well in a chic plunging jumpsuit.

And she even posted a throwback snap on her Instagram Stories of the couple from 2014 with the caption: ‘I look the same.’
