Remember the cage fight that Elon Musk challenged Mark Zuckerberg to some time ago? Last Sunday, the Tesla CEO said that the fight would be live-streamed on social media platform X (former Twitter). However, the date is still in the air.
Musk also said that “I’m getting an MRI of my neck & upper back tomorrow. May require surgery before the fight can happen. Will know this week.”
At the very least, the proceeds for this fight will go to charities for veterans, Musk has also said Sunday morning.
Zuckerberg also replied to Musk’s tweet (X) on the same day, on Threads, saying that “I’m ready today. I suggested Aug. 26 when he first challenged, but he hasn’t confirmed. Not holding my breath.” Clearly, Zuckerberg is alluding to the fact that Musk is chickening out.
Musk had also said that he was lifting weights to prepare for the fight. This might not be the most optimal way to prepare to fight someone who has almost a year of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, has won some competitions, and is training with the likes of Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski.
Mark Zuckerberg seems to have been busy, and many are saying that Musk has no chance against the more experienced fighter.
Musk also said that “It’s a civilized form of war. Men love war,” when asked by someone on X why he insists on having this fight.
Let’s remember that Musk is 52 while Zuckerberg is 39. So, not only does Zuckerberg have an age advantage, but also physical conditioning and grappling experience in the ring.
Whether the right will actually take place or not remains to be seen. If it does, many are saying it will become the buffoonery of the century.
We’ll be there to cover it if and when it happens!
