On June 9th, Beiber Tweeted; “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?”
“We would welcome both Justin and Tom to compete at Throwdown at the Downs 2.0,” said Richard Mitchell, Owner of Ground Force Fights. “Fights begin at 6pm and we’d be happy to fit them onto the card whenever it’s convenient for them, given their busy schedules.”
