Strange things happen on the internet all the time. But the winner for this month may very well be Justin Bieber's challenge to fight Tom Cruise on Twitter last night. And Justin wants it all. The octagon. Mixed martial arts. The Mission: Impossible star. The singer even pitched it to UFC president, Dana White, when he asked, "Who is willing to put on the fight?"
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 10, 2019
The biggest mystery is: Where is all this beef coming from? Do Cruise and Bieber even know each other, let alone have a reason to fight?
Fans online are unsurprisingly expressing their opinions in the singer's reply section. Some think it's great. Most think it's a joke. Some are calling out Bieber for challenging someone so much older than him, noting Cruise is 56 while Justin is 25. But people certainly have some pretty hilarious reactions.

Some are betting on Cruise.
Cruise is 56. Bieber is 25. I will go with youth.— Gorman (@LawGorman) June 10, 2019
Others are betting on Bieber.

Many are willing to pay money to watch and bet on it.
Sounds like @justinbieber got high & watched Mission Impossible again!— Sky Smith (@Sky_Smith_) June 10, 2019
One is speculating why exactly Bieber would suggest this.
i wanna challenge user justinbieber to release his 5th studio album— lu (@flatIinesIut) June 10, 2019
While others are reminding Justin to focus on the music.
One hypothesis, according to Uproxx, is that Bieber could be promoting a music project. Only hours before the mystifying Tom-Cruise-fight-tweet, he also announced on Twitter that he is continuing to work on music.
More music coming. Happy Sunday— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 9, 2019
Could this be a hint to something magical? Cruise in a Bieber music video, perhaps? Until we see it, this will remain an unsolved mystery on Twitter for the time being.
