Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have been in a social media beef that has escalated to the point of a hypothetical “cage match” between the two tech billionaires. UFC president Dana White has revealed that both Musk and Zuckerberg are “absolutely dead serious” about the fight and that fans will have to pay $100 to watch the pay-per-view.
The two billionaires have been exchanging tweets and Instagram stories about the potential fight. Musk tweeted that he was “up for a cage fight” with Zuckerberg, to which Zuckerberg responded with “send me location”. Musk then suggested the fight should take place in the Octagon, the competition mat and fenced-in area used for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bouts, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The UFC president, Dana White, has confirmed that the two tech billionaires are “absolutely dead serious” about the fight and would donate the proceeds to charity.
Musk, who turns 52 later this month, has joked about his fighting style, saying he has a move called “The Walrus” where he just lies on top of his opponent and does nothing. Meanwhile, Zuckerberg, who is 39 years old, is an aspirational MMA fighter who has won Jiu-Jitsu tournaments and claims to have recently completed the grueling “Murph Challenge” workout in just under 40 minutes.
The idea of a cage match between two tech billionaires has generated a lot of buzz on social media, with many people expressing excitement about the prospect of seeing Musk and Zuckerberg fight each other. Some have even suggested that other tech CEOs should also get in on the action.
While the idea of a cage match between two billionaires may seem like a joke, it appears that both Musk and Zuckerberg are serious about the fight. If it does happen, it will undoubtedly be one of the most talked-about events of the year.
