Bieber tweeted out the proposal recently, and he even looped in White, which prompted some interesting responses from Conor McGregor too.

More recently, White was a guest on LVSportsBiz’s Guerilla Cross Radio,and he was asked for his take on Bieber’s call out. Here’s what the UFC President had to say (quote via MMA Mania):

”I didn’t know if it was real or not,” White said when asked about call out. “I still don’t know if it’s real. Everybody is 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 anyone who’s 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 talk.”

Now, if you’re a MMA purist, and this story is rating high on the annoyance bar, don’t worry. Bieber has already followed up and said he was only joking.

In terms of real UFC fights, the promotion’s next card is taking place Saturday in Greenville, South Carolina. Chang Sung Jung will battle fellow featherweight contender Renato “Moicano” in the main event.
