In an unexpected turn of events, the CEOs of two tech giants appear to be preparing for a face-off. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, countered claims by Elon Musk regarding the details of their much-anticipated bout.
Earlier, Musk had claimed the fight would be held in “an epic location” in Italy and would be live-streamed on both X and Meta platforms. In response, Zuckerberg took to Threads on Friday, saying, “Please assume anything [Musk] says has not been agreed on.”
The Meta founder expressed his desire to collaborate with Dana White and the UFC for the fight’s organisation.
Further elucidating on his perspective, Zuckerberg stated, “Not holding my breath for Elon, but I’ll share details on my next fight when I’m ready. When I compete, I want to do it in a way that puts a spotlight on the elite athletes at the top of the game. You do that by working with professional orgs like the UFC or ONE to pull this off well and create a great card.”
To showcase his commitment, Zuckerberg shared an image of himself training intensively in his garden Octagon.
The idea of this unique face-off originated in June when Musk suggested a cage match, coinciding with the announcement of Zuckerberg’s Threads. Though discussions seem preliminary, Musk’s plans might be delayed due to a forthcoming minor shoulder surgery.
