Following Elon Musk’s recent tweet expressing his willingness to engage in a “cage fight” with Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta swiftly responded by sharing a screenshot of Musk’s tweet accompanied by the statement “send me location.”
The Verge confirmed that Zuckerberg’s Instagram post is not intended as a joke, as stated by Meta spokesperson Iska Saric. The situation now awaits Musk’s response, and as Saric mentioned, “The story speaks for itself.”
Musk has even given an official location for it: Vegas Octagon.
Musk has been engaging in Twitter taunts directed at Zuckerberg, including remarks like “Zuck my 👅.”
In a recent internal all-hands meeting at Meta, Chief Product Officer Chris Cox energized employees by stating that the company believes creators desire a version of Twitter that is “properly managed.” Zuckerberg himself expressed his belief that Twitter should have a user base of one billion people in a recent podcast interview with Lex Fridman.
When it comes to the hypothetical scenario of tech billionaire CEOs physically battling, a clash between Musk and Zuckerberg would undoubtedly generate significant interest.
Musk, aged 51, holds a physical advantage over Zuckerberg and has spoken about his experience in “real hard-core street fights” during his upbringing in South Africa. Meanwhile, 39-year-old Zuckerberg is an aspiring MMA fighter who has already achieved success in Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. Additionally, he claims to have recently completed the demanding “Murph Challenge” workout in just under 40 minutes.
