Rumor has it that Twitter CEO Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg are going to fight each other (physically, not figuratively) in a cage match. Yes, you heard that right. After an online squabble, the two are purportedly interested in an actual fight. Today, the news broke that Musk has agreed to train with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre. St-Pierre offered his services to Musk in a tweet, to which Musk replied, “Okay, let’s do it.”
No one really knows if this fight will actually happen, but it could. It’s ludicrous that men of such stature should be entertaining the notion of a cage match. Nonetheless, Zuckerberg is apparently trained in martial arts, and seemed open to the idea given his own comments on Instagram. The fight, as UFC president Dana White notes, would be the “biggest in history.” Mike Chiari reports for Bleacher Report,
UFC president Dana White later said he spoke with both Musk and Zuckerberg, saying that they are “absolutely deadly serious” about making the fight happen.
White added that he believes Musk vs. Zuckerberg would be the most lucrative fight in combat sports history, topping the 2017 boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor: “The biggest fight of all time was Floyd and Conor, I just think it triples that—it triples what that did, there’s no limit on what that thing can make.”–Mike Chiari, Elon Musk Agrees to Train with UFC Legend Georges St-Pierre for Mark Zuckerberg Fight | News, Scores, Highlights, Stats, and Rumors | Bleacher Report
Note the phrase “deadly serious.” If that’s true, then we might see the class of the tech titans actually materialize in an old-fashioned cage fight. How ridiculous has our society become?
