In what may be the most obnoxious proposed celebrity fight ever, the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, and fellow billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, appear to be seriously discussing the idea of having an MMA fight to settle their differences. Their most recent spat started when it was reported social media giant Meta, which Zuckerberg chairs, would be launching an app to compete with Twitter, owned by Musk.
Musk tweeted out that he would be up for a cage match between the two. Zuckerberg responded by quoting retired UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov saying, “Send me location.” Though it seemed the two were joking, UFC president Dana White said it’s for real. White told TMZ he had spoken with both men and that they are “dead serious” about fighting.
“This would be the biggest fighter ever, in the history of the world,” said White.
It’s been noted that Zuckerberg has recently become serious about training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, though his total competitive experience seems to be participating in a single tournament as a white belt. Musk, who claims to have trained in karate and judo as a child and briefly as an adult in BJJ, made similar headlines last year for absurdly challenging Russian leader Vladimir Putin to “single combat” for the country of Ukraine.
