McGregor wants to fight Wahlberg on same card as Bieber vs. Cruise

“Back when Mark Wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my UFC shares back.”

Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise just got all Celebrity Deathmatch on us.

That’s right, on Sunday evening, pop star sensation Justin Bieber challenged Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise to an MMA fight, and no one knows why.

And, not longer after Bieber posted his tweet, former UFC two-division champ Conor McGregor responded by offering to host the fight in his very own promotion, McGregor Sports and Entertainment.

No, really.

‘The Notorious’ took things a step further in his follow-up tweet, offering to fight Hollywood actor and minor UFC stakeholder Mark Wahlberg on the same card as Bieber vs. Cruise.

“I challenge Mark Walhberg on the very same card.Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back.#Shares #Streams #Dazn #Espn McGregor Sports and Entertainment,” McGregor posted.

That’s when former UFC lightweight champion turned top-three welterweight contender Rafael dos Anjos decided to interject, ridiculing the Irishman for even entertaining the matchup.

“If Tom don’t take You should take this one @TheNotoriousMMA at this point of your career you can’t keep up with real challengers,” RDA responded.

McGregor, 30, hasn’t fought since his fourth-round submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight titleholder is currently injured and no one knows when — or if — he will return to the UFC.
