Elon Musk has officially confirmed his upcoming cage fight against Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, with the live-streamed event generating revenue for a charity supporting veterans. Anticipation is high as both tech giants demonstrate their commitment to this historic performance, fueled by Musk’s training background and Zuckerberg’s intense preparation.
In a highly anticipated development, Elon Musk has officially confirmed his upcoming cage fight against Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg. On his social media platform “X” (formerly known as Twitter), Musk announced that the match would be live-streamed on his platform, with all revenue generated from the event going to a charity that supports veterans.
While Mark Zuckerberg has yet to respond to Musk’s confirmation of live streaming on “X,” the Meta founder previously agreed to take on his business rival. Just a few days earlier, in response to a Threads post by McDonald’s asking if anyone wanted anything from their menu, Zuckerberg jokingly replied, “20 nuggets, a quarter pounder, large fries, Oreo McFlurry, apple pie, And maybe some side cheeseburgers. Later?” However, UFC fighter Mike Davis advised Zuckerberg to avoid McDonald’s during his training, to which Zuckerberg replied that he needed 4,000 calories a day to maintain his activity level. This statement caught the attention of UFC president Dana White, who expressed his commitment to making the Musk vs. Zuckerberg matchup a reality.
White excitedly predicted that the fight would surpass all previous records, making it the biggest fight in history and breaking all pay-per-view records. Elon Musk, on the other hand, shared in a previous podcast interview with Joe Rogan that he trained in Taekwondo, Judo, Karate as a child, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as an adult. He is believed to have a considerable advantage in weight and height as compared to Mark Zuckerberg.
Adding to the excitement, a recent Instagram post from Zuckerberg featured him posing with renowned Ultimate Fighting Champions (UFC) Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovsky. TMZ reports that Zuckerberg has been training intensely with these two accomplished MMA fighters in preparation for the fight. Both Musk and Zuckerberg have publicly demonstrated their willingness to step into the enclosure and join the fight, making it clear that they are fully committed to this dramatic showdown.
Zuckerberg has also confirmed his plans to build an octagon arena on his property, increasing anticipation surrounding the event. As the battle between the tech giants draws closer, fans are eagerly waiting for more updates and announcements. The clash between two of the world’s most influential personalities is expected to be a historic event that will capture the attention of millions across the globe.
