Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk are not just rivals on the technology arena but will soon be opponents in an actual mano a mano fight in a Las Vegas cage, reflecting the wild, opportunity predators these two personalities represent.
It was Musk who floated the idea, taking a jab at Meta’s plans for a Twitter competitor. Zuckerberg was quick to reply with: “Send Me Location.”
Musk responded with two words: “Vegas Octagon.” So Musk thinks this will be a UFC MMA-like fight. Who will be tattooed or what body tattoos will be on display remains to be seen.
Zuckerberg may be taking this more seriously, being a Jiu-Jitsu champion and, having more twitter taunts incentives to get his frustrations out on someone, anyone, for his metaverse hiccups so far.
Tale of the tape
Musk, 51, has substantial physical size over Zuckerberg, and claims that growing up in South Africa taught him “real hard-core street fights.”
Zuckerberg, 39, has strong credentials as an MMA fighter who already competed in and won Jiu-Jitsu tournaments.
At an estimated 1.87 meters tall and 85kg in weight, Musk is several weight classes above Zuckerberg, who is only 1.71 meters in height and less than 70kg in weight.
Will this be a serious fight or will it be treated as a joke?
