Potential Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg Fight
Renowned for their global influence, billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have surprisingly agreed to face off in a highly anticipated cage match, captivating the attention of millions across the globe.
On Elon’s social media platform, Twitter, he replied to a user’s thread shining light on Mark Zuckerberg’s jiu-jitsu experience. Elon tweeted in response, “I’m up for a cage match if he is,”.
Initially dismissed as meaningless tweets, the significance of the situation escalated when Mark Zuckerberg personally responded on Instagram. Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook and Meta, responded to Elon Musk's tweet on Instagram by adding a screenshot with the words “sSend me location” underneath. Zuckerberg’s quip was a direct reference to Khabib responding to Mcgregor in the largest combat sports rivalry of all time.
Musk responded saying, ”Vegas Octagon” also known as the UFC Apex. Musk also added that he has a move called the “Walrus” in which he lies on top of his opponent doing nothing in hopes to flatten and wear out his opposition. Musk also mentioned this a while back in a podcast, where he challenged Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin. It seems Musk is willing to fight anyone at any time.
UFC President Dana White initially also believed nothing was going to occur. However, iIn an interview, White mentioned that he called both Zuckerberg and Musk;, and they both verbally agreed to fight in a UFC Octagon. Many MMA fans and reporters including White, believe this is going to be the biggest event in combat sports history, and could even rival other global sports as well. However, questions arose regarding the tale of the tape, as reports indicated that Zuckerberg weighs around 155 pounds, while Musk, according to TMZ, tips the scales at 185-200 pounds. This extreme weight disparity raised concerns about whether the fight would be sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission due to the large difference in weight classes.
Despite these uncertainties, sportsbooks worldwide, including MMAmania, have Zuckerberg opening as a -500 favorite, implying an 83% chance of victory for him. Regardless of the outcome, the bout is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and will be a spectacle for everybody across the globe to see.
