You thought CM Punk fighting inside the UFC Octagon could be as crazy things could get?

Yeah, no.

Earlier this week, pop sensation Justin Bieber tweeted out that he fancied entering the UFC Octagon to meet actor and action star staple Tom Cruise for a fight. He even went as far as tagging UFC president Dana White in the post.

Normally, you’d be forgiven for thinking nothing as insane as that could ever happen, but according to White, who was asked about the celebrity feud on LVSportsBiz podcast in Las Vegas today, nothing is ever off the table.

“I didn’t know if it was real or not,” White said. “I still don’t know if it was real. Everybody’s 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 anybody at 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 definitely talk. We can definitely talk.”

Unfortunately for White, and for those who want to see Cruise beat up Bieber, the pop star was approached by TMZ and he said he was only joking about the contest.
