Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg's Cage Fight Plans Hit a Snag
Although Musk had announced the fight would be livestreamed on both X and Meta platforms, Zuckerberg responded via a statement on Threads, indicating that no agreement had been finalized.
While Musk had enthusiastically proposed the fight to take place in Italy, Zuckerberg expressed his readiness for the challenge while underlining that any official date would come directly from him.
Zuckerberg, who has demonstrated his dedication to mixed martial arts (MMA) training and achieved recognition for his achievements in a jiu-jitsu tournament, voiced his intention to collaborate with professional organizations such as UFC or ONE for a well-executed event that highlights elite athletes in the sport.
Musk, however, responded to Zuckerberg's statement with his trademark candidness. He suggested that if Zuckerberg truly desired a lesson in weight categories in fighting, he would be prepared to provide it personally. Furthermore, Musk hinted at potential venues for the showdown, including Italy's arena, and even mused about an informal practice session.
The exchange between the tech moguls began in June, when Musk publicly challenged Zuckerberg to a cage match, playfully expressing his readiness for the duel. Zuckerberg, known for his jiujitsu prowess and victories, eagerly responded, humorously asking Musk to "send location" for the proposed bout.
Despite the initial enthusiasm and friendly banter, it appears that the details of the much-anticipated cage fight are still up in the air. The clash between the two prominent figures has captured the attention of their respective followers, and while the fight's fate remains uncertain, the prospect of witnessing these tech titans face off in the MMA arena continues to intrigue.
