Dana White breaths life in a Justin Bieber vs Tom Cruise match.

So, remember when Justin Bieber challenge Tom Cruise? Of course, you do, it just happened last week after all. We were all ready to move on from this story, especially since Justin Bieber rescinded his challenge against Cruise. But now it seems that UFC president Dana White is injecting New Hope and speculation into the idea of that match taking place inside the world-famous Octagon.

Dana White has gone on record stating that the possibilities of a Justin Bieber versus Tom Cruise match happening in the UFC are quite high. Do UFC president spoke to TMZ sports about this “dream matchup.”

While many people would buy pay-per-views for that match, if the fight really were to take place in the UFC it would likely be a major blow to the brand’s credibility. Yes, celebrity matchups are certainly intriguing and even I must admit that I’d tune in for that fight, if only to see how ridiculous the spectacle would be. But the UFC has been built on the foundation that the organization house is the best fighters on the planet. For Dana White to consider a Justin Bieber versus Tom Cruise match up, it shows where the UFC president’s heart truly resides.

At the end of the day it’s all comes down to dollars and cents. If Dana White sees an opportunity to make a truckload of cash with a proposed Justin Bieber-Tom Cruise match up , then you can bet that he’ll do everything in his power to make it happen.

UPDATE: Justin Bieber apparently confirmed that he’d still do the match in a secret phone conversation. It’s appearing that this fight is becoming closer and closer to becoming a reality.

What do you make of Dana White and his decision to potentially put on this match?
