Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Elon Musk Is Not Serious About Cage Fight

The Meta CEO revealed that Musk wanted to do a practice fight before the real one

Billionaires punching each other in a cage match? Well, the idea seems to have grabbed more eyeballs than the launch of their rival products ( Mark Zuckerberg’s Threads in a reply to Elon Musk’s Twitter). But it now appears like the much-anticipated showdown between Musk and Zuckerberg may not happen at all, because one of them isn’t interested.

Zuckerberg accused Musk of not being serious about the cage fight since the latter didn’t confirm the date or venue for the fight. The UFC boss Dana White had offered to organise the fight, whose proceedings will then go to charity.

“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on. I offered a real date. Dana White (UFC boss) offered to make this a legit competition for charity,” wrote Zuckerberg on Threads.

The Meta CEO also revealed that Musk wanted to do a practice fight before the real one. Zuckerberg is a trained mixed martial artist, having recently competed in his first-ever Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament. He wanted Musk to train on his own for a fight, rather than asking him for a practice fight.

Elon Takes Over Twitter

“Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead. If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise, time to move on. I’m going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously,” Zuckerberg added.

Musk didn’t have a lot to say about this, as he wrote, “Zuckerberg is chic”. The Tesla CEO had approached the Italian government for hosting a fight in some ancient venue. Musk earlier commented that even though he rarely does training, he is going to easily beat Zuckerberg, thanks to the size difference.

The battle between these two Tech billionaires intensified after Zuckerberg launched Threads, a potential rival and alternative to Threads. Soon after Threads went live, Musk tweeted that he considering filing a lawsuit against the parent company Meta for appropriating “Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property”.

“To be clear, no one on the Threads engineering team is a former Twitter employee—that’s just not a thing,” replied Andy Stones, communication director at Meta.
