Elon Musk has surprised his social media followers by suggesting a potential in-person fight with Mark Zuckerberg. The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder has proposed that the face-off, dubbed a "cage match," be live-streamed on his social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter). Although it remains to be seen whether the two tech billionaires will actually step into the ring, the banter surrounding their hypothetical fight has created quite a buzz.
Zuckerberg, who is trained in mixed martial arts, recently shared his jiu jitsu tournament experience on Meta, the parent company of Facebook. In response, Musk, who owns X, made a tongue-in-cheek comment about being up for a cage match against Zuckerberg. The idea seemed to gain traction as Musk later mentioned that all proceeds from the event would go to charity for veterans.
While the authenticity of this potential showdown is still uncertain, Musk's proposition aligns with his goal of transforming X into a "digital town square." However, it's worth noting that Musk has been known to make impulsive announcements or promises on Twitter without following through. Nevertheless, if the fight were to happen, fans could witness an intriguing clash between two tech industry powerhouses.
As of now, there has been no official response from representatives of X, Meta, or the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the possible venue for the face-off. Whether or not this fight comes to fruition, the conversation has undoubtedly captured attention in the online world.
It's important to remember that despite Musk's ambitious plans, his recent attempt to host a Twitter Spaces event faced technical challenges and was delayed by almost half an hour. The incident occurred during Musk's collaboration with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for an audio-only event in which DeSantis announced his candidacy for president. Despite straining servers due to high listener demand, the event only attracted around 420,000 concurrent listeners, a modest number compared to televised presidential announcements.
