Justin Bieber gave fans hope that he would fight Hollywood icon Tom Cruise in a UFC fight, but the dream might already be over thanks to the singer’s manager Scooter Braun.

In a random tweet on Sunday, Justin announced to his 106 million followers that he was challenging Tom, 56, to a UFC fight without any explanation as to why he picked the Top Gun star.

Literally, there was no rhyme nor reason but fans were excited about the prospect of a pop superstar getting in the Octagon with an even bigger one.

Sadly, Scooter says he personally has ‘no interest’ in orchestrating a fight so there likely won’t be one.

Responding to Justin’s tweet, the record label boss said: ‘Of course he did. Just a normal Sunday.

‘But I have no interest in watching or helping in making this happen unless it includes crushed glass on the knuckles and a live bear released in to the octagon in the 4th round.’

Possibly preempting accusations that he’d use the fight as a money-maker, Scooter cautiously added: ‘Oh and the money should go to charity of course.’

It’s been two days since Justin’s mysterious tweet and there’s been no response from Tom’s camp about the challenge.

The 25-year-old singer had said: ‘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.’

Justin then tagged UFC president Dana White to show he’s serious, adding: ‘Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite? [sic].’

Even UFC fighter Conor McGregor was excited about the prospect and said: ‘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!’
