Let's get ready to rumble: Zuckerberg agrees to fight Musk in cage match

in General Discussion edited June 2023

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg could step into the octagon after openly teasing each other on social media.




It's not uncommon to see two high-profile people square off for an MMA fight these days. It's become common for YouTubers and podcasters to step into the ring -- especially if there's some sort of ongoing rivalry.

Now it seems like the growing list of amateur fighters may soon include two of tech's biggest players.

On June 20, Musk tweeted that he'd be "up for a cage match" with Zuckerberg after learning that Meta plans to release a Twitter alternative named "Threads."

I'm up for a cage match if he is lol

-- Elon Musk (@elonmusk)



In response, Zuckerberg screen capped Musks's tweet, added "send me location," and posted it to his Instagram story.

While it'd be easy to assume this was a joke, a Meta spokesperson told The Verge that it wasn't.

Musk suggested the Vegas Octagon, and then playfully responded by saying, "I have this great move that I call "The Walrus", where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing."

The Verge

points out that while Musk dwarfs Zuckerberg in terms of sheer physical size, Zuckerberg has already begun winning Jiu-Jitsu tournaments.

Wheher or not the fight will happen remains to be seen. Musk has a habit of routinely making claims that he later attempts to back out of.

    I hope it's to the ultimate finish, with the victor charged appropriately under the law.  In a country with capital punishment.

    I have no doubt that their respective adult guardians, i.e., boards of directors, will ensure that this Clown Patrol is never allowed to convene.

    I'd rather they do pistols at dawn, with both of them getting a fatal hit.

    One can only hope they take each other out, 2 birds with one stone. Both shitty people with shitty behaviour and visions.

    Tim Cook has too much class to be watching two aging adolescents duke it out in Vegas.

    Does anyone really have the time and inclination to watch a Karen versus Karen slap fest? I suppose Vegas could put up odds to bet on which CEO starts crying first. Yeah, it really would be that bad. Or just plain sad.

    This will be the dorkiest battle in human history!
    On one end of the ring we'll have Zuck's 90s reject floating head avatar, and on the other Musk's unfinished humanoid bot.

    LOL. Zuckerberg knowing joy Mitsubishis isn’t going to change anything. Musk appears to be less basically fit, but quite a bit stronger, larger, and heavier. As much as he’s into so many things, I seriously doubt he hasn’t learned fighting techniques - if for nothing else than for self defense as he’s a target for the weirdos out there. 

    Of course the idea of tech moguls fighting each other is completely absurd. And yet, in the days since celebrity deathmatch became a thing, you know you’d watch it. 

    If and when it happens, Musk takes it and quickly. Zuckerberg will have excuses about a sprained ankle from skateboarding or something. 

    Of course the reality is that it appears musk wasn’t actually talking about them fighting each other. It seemed more like a TWITTER CEO vs THREADS CEO putting their services against each other. 

    Twitter FTW.

    Musk may have the upper hand with his "The Walrus" move.

    All said and done, Musk and Zuck are providing more entertainment than Twitter or FaceBook ever did.

    You mean this is real?  I thought it was just another stupid Facebook meme.  🤣🤣🤣

    Along with others, the best outcome for this is that both attain ambient temperature.

    That or we're about to see a cage fight where the respective security teams try to neutralise each other and capture the opponent.
