On Sunday, Justin Bieber made perhaps the strangest request of his career.
Completely unprovoked and unprompted, the "Sorry," singer revealed that he wants to challenge Tom Cruise to a UFC fight.
"I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don't take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite?"

It was initially unclear if The Biebs, who seemed to be heading to a more self-aware place of late, was hacked.
Former UFC champ and overall lover of drama Conor McGregor jumped in to show his support.
"If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout," he wrote.

No word on why Bieber wants this to happen, nor has there been a response from Tom Cruise. But considering Tom does all of his own stunts in every movie he's ever made, maybe Bieber should start training now.
Twitter showed its fair share of confusion over the matter as well. Check out the Tweets below.

Nobody: Nobody at all: Not one single self aware being in the universe: Justin Bieber to Tom cruise https://t.co/tGBrczrapg
Justin Bieber is 30 years younger and (probably) 5 inches taller than Tom Cruise. I'd bet a large sum that neither man has been in a real fight in his entire life. And yet I would bet a larger sum that Tom Cruise wins this fight. https://t.co/7gjx4RrerB
