Making a statement recently, Steve-O suggested that Bieber rather fight him than Tom Cruise, stating that he’s sick of always being overlooked.
If you’re not quite sure whats up, a month earlier, Bieber announced on Twitter that he would like to challenge Tom Cruise to fight him, tagging UFC President, Dana White, suggesting they fight in the octagon.
As randomly as the original tweet came to be, the Jackass star said that he should rather be the one to take on Bieber.
Check out Steve-O’s chat with White:
Bieber didn’t hold back on the trash-talk in his tweet to Cruise, which read:
“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your [sic] scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?T
He did later on suggest that it was just a joke and that the Mission Impossible star would probably ‘whoop his ass’, but Dana has mentioned that she’s hopeful the fight will go ahead, reporting the TMZ Sports that ‘weirder things have happened’.P
According to TMZ, the Jackass star explained:
I’m sick of being overlooked for my potential as a cage fighter!
I think you’ve been picking a fight with the wrong guy. Tom Cruise might be 56, but, hey, I’m 45!
Steve-O has gone as far as meeting up with Dana White and expressed his thoughts, suggesting they consider him as a viable opponent to enter the octagon if Cruise refused.
The 45-year-old said:
I had a little chat with Dana White. And he agreed that if Tom Cruise doesn’t step up, and someone needs to fill the cage with Justin Bieber, then I’m the guy.
We shook on it, me and Dana White.P
Bieber may be younger than Steve-O, but the actor pointed out that he can take a serious beating, something we can all agree with after seeing the serious stunts he put himself through on Jackass.
