Justin Bieber Challenged Tom Cruise To A Fight And Twitter's Roasting Him To A Crisp

Pop star Justin Bieber is swiftly approaching Kanye-levels of attention seeking. The 25 year old pop star sent a bizarre tweet last night challenging the 56 year old actor to a UFC match. 

"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?" 

The strange tweet went viral very, very quickly - and has inspired a good old-fashioned roasting of the ballsy pop star. We're definitely Team Cruise, and would love to see the seasoned action star put Bieber in his place. If you need more background on this weird exchange, check out  the Know Your Meme entry!

Floyd Mayweather seems adamant, hopelessly lenient towards stirring up the pot, and pissing off the competition, but outside the octagon. Mayweather recently implied Conor McGregor's popularity was more a result of his skin color than anything else:

"And what's so crazy, I don't really know the McGregor guy; never seen him fight. … They say he talk a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this, I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Not chill Mayweather, not chill at all.

McGregor shut this little spell down by releasing a statement that was all at once, articulate, methodical, and appropriate. Here's an excerpt off McGregor's lengthy, well-rounded Instagram response:

Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.

In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again. If you want we can organise a fight no problem. I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game. The game answers to me now.

Suffice to say, we'd pay a whole lotta' dough to see these two exchange blows sometime soon.

Who do you think would take home the W?

It takes a serious set of stones to openly challenge the dude who knocked out another professionally trained fighter in 13 seconds a week ago. We don't know if Diaz was severely concussed, caught up in the post fight exhilaration, or if he actually wants to take on the bada** irishman.

One thing's certain, and that's that 'he can't talk like that on Fox.'

The entire UFC Featherweight match lasted less than 30 seconds, and McGregor swiftly ended Jose Aldo's history of multiple-rounds fights.

McGregor's quick KO also put another notch in his new belt, it broke Ronda Rousey's previous record for Fastest Title Fight finish.

Ronda Rousey is currently on a six month medical suspension in order to recover from the injuries she sustained in her recent match against Holy Holm, but once she's healed you can expect to see her take Holm on again.



UFC president Dana White says, "I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and [UFC CEO] Lorenzo [Fertitta] should probably lose our promoters’ license. Yeah, that fight’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but that’s the fight that will happen."

There's no doubt that Rousey will be back in fighting shape in no time and ready to take back her title.

This one really stinks.

UFC star Urijah Faber had a very eventful party after a woman stormed into his house, locked herself in his bathroom and pooped everywhere.

Faber was entertaining guests at his Sacramento home where he captured the entire event on Snapchat. The police eventually showed up and escorted the very stinky woman away.

If there was one good thing from this tale, it was this: Faber made some new friends.
