Musk, who gained control of Twitter last year, ignited the discussion by tweeting his willingness to engage in a cage fight with Zuckerberg, the head of Meta.
In response, Zuckerberg took a screenshot of Musk’s tweet and replied with a simple challenge: “send me location.” Musk promptly suggested holding the match in the “Vegas Octagon.”
Not one to back down, Musk humorously revealed his training strategy, emphasizing that spending time with his children constitutes his workout routine.
He quipped, “I have this great move that I call ‘The Walrus,’ where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing. I almost never work out, except for picking up my kids & throwing them in the air.”
Meanwhile, Zuckerberg appears to be in good physical condition, having recently emerged victorious in his first jiu-jitsu competition.
This places Musk at a disadvantage, prompting him to admit in a Twitter exchange with author Ashlee Vance that he has yet to begin training but would do so if the fight were to materialize.
Even UFC president Dana White has confirmed the seriousness of both contenders.
White revealed that Zuckerberg contacted him first to gauge Musk’s sincerity. Upon receiving Musk’s confirmation, White remarked, “Both guys are absolutely dead serious about this. They both want to do it.” He further stated that the event would shatter pay-per-view records and generate hundreds of millions of dollars for charity.
While financial gain may not be their primary motivation, the potential financial windfall from this epic clash is not lost on anyone. However, it is clear that Musk and Zuckerberg’s genuine desire is to settle their differences physically, raising the stakes to unprecedented heights.
The spectacle of these influential figures engaging in combat has captivated the public’s imagination, transcending the realm of fight fans. The fight, if it comes to fruition, promises to be an unprecedented spectacle that would captivate audiences worldwide.
