So, right when we think the story is over, just like the quote from Godfather III, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
Yesterday afternoon, Dana White spoke about seeing the tweet about the Bieber vs. Cruise callout during an interview on Guerilla Cross Radio.
“I didn’t know if it was real or not. I still don’t know if it’s real,” White said (transcript by MMA Mania). “Everybody is talking about it, but Justin hasn’t contacted me.
“Listen, first of all, maybe Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise for whatever reason. I highly doubt Tom Cruise wants to fight Justin Bieber. I’m 50, I think Tom Cruise is 56. I don’t think anyone who’s 56 is looking to fight anybody.
“But I’ll tell you this, if Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise, and Tom Cruise wants to fight Justin Bieber, we can talk,” he said.
As we know, Bieber, backed down a few days ago, telling TMZ — “I think he would probably whoop my ass in a fight. I’d have to get super in shape, I’m really skinny right now. I think he’d probably be out of my weight class. He’s got that dad strength.”
Where does that leave us? I guess we will find out soon.
