A fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg might sound like something you will find while watching a movie. However, it seems like we might be close to seeing one of the most interesting fighting matches in the history of the world.

According to Nostrabet.com, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have “agreed” to take part in a cage match. If what the two have said is true, the match will take palace in the Vegas Octagon, which is one of the places where we’ve seen tons of UFC matches. It all started following a Tweet from Musk where he said he was up for a match against Zuckerberg, Meta’s CEO. Strangely, the latter responded that he was up for the challenge and even said “Send me location”, after which Musk suggested the Vegas Octagon, followed by twitting several memes, which probably indicate that he might be trolling.
Whether we’ll see the cage fight or not, there’s no arguing that this potential clash captured people’s interest. There are a lot of things we need to know about the match, so let’s go over everything.
Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg – Who Has Better Chances?
Considering the match is supposedly taking place in the octagon, Dana White had a lot to say about it. In an interview, the UFC’s president said that Zuckerberg is the favorite because he’s younger and has some experience in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Unsurprisingly, Dana White will do everything to put together the fight of the century, but we’re yet to see what will happen.
Since this could be the most interesting cage match in combat sports history, many sports betting websites decided to take advantage of it. Consequently, people can find bookmakers that allow them to wager on this potential fight. A quick look at the available options reveals that all companies consider Mark Zuckerberg the favorite because he’s younger and has real combat-sports experience.
Mark Zuckerberg’s Brazilian jiu-jitsu experience
Some of you may not know, but one of the world’s richest and most influential people is a huge Brazilian jiu-jitsu fan. He’s been training actively since September, and it seems he’s made progress in the last few months. According to the information shared by Facebook’s founder, he has first and second place in white belt lightweight division jiu-jitsu tournaments.
Mark Zuckerberg’s jiu-jitsu trainer is called Dave Camarillo, and he’s praised his student numerous times. According to him, Mark Zuckerberg is extremely hard-working and one of the best students ever. Unsurprisingly, Camarillo will be key in Zuckerberg’s preparation for the upcoming fight against Musk.
Elon Musk and his advantages
true. i can confirm this. https://t.co/p1M7m1oFlb— bill lee (@westcoastbill) June 22, 2023
Although it seems like Tesla and SpaceX’s CEO is at a disadvantage in the Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg fight, this is not entirely true. Sure, Musk turns 52 in 2023, whereas Zuckerberg is 39, but Twitter’s owner is taller and has the weight advantage. Elon Musk said that he almost never works out, but he had been part of street fights while growing up in South Africa.
Typically for Musk, he said he had a “great move called The Walrus”, after which he started tweeting GIFs of Walruses lying on their back.
Andrew Tate’s Role in Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg
As expected, the Battle of the Billionaires attracted a lot of famous people and one of them was none other than Andrew Tate. The controversial ex-kickboxer, now a businessman, offered his services to Musk, saying he would train him and that he won’t lose. Tate’s offer may not come as a surprise because we must remember that he was banned from all of Meta’s platforms in 2022, meaning he is eager to take revenge against Zuckerger’s empire.
In case you have forgotten, Andrew Tate was banned from Instagram and Facebook because he apparently violated the company’s policies. Several months later, Tate also had problems with the authorities in Romania, where he, his brother, and two other people are facing serious charges.
The “beef” between the two billionaires
Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg maybe some of the most influential and wealthy people on earth, but they’ve also had “beef” between them. The most memorable one dates from 2017, when the two were arguing about the future of AI. Zuckerberg was more optimistic about the topic, saying that AI will help humans instead of leading them to “doomsday scenarios”, but Musk was more reserved and said that Mark’s understanding of the subject is pretty limited.
Memes & More
Of course, Musk’s proposal for a cage match was not left unnoticed by memes. You can come across all sorts of posts on Twitter and other social media platforms, which increases the hype even more.
When talking about these kinds of fights, we also need to mention Jake Paul. The controversial YouTuber/Boxer also said that he would promote the fight (*source Twitter thread here), which will draw even more attention. After all, he’s been one of the most successful boxers lately in terms of attention.
