Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are “absolutely dead serious” about fighting in the UFC Octagon. This was stated by the president of the UFC Ultimate Fight Club, Dana White, reports The Wrap.
“Talked with Mark and Elon last night, both guys are absolutely dead serious about this,” White said on TMZ Live.
According to his estimates, the viewership of the fight between Zuckerberg and Musk will triple the figure of the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor in 2017, which had an estimated 50 million people watching in the U.S. alone. White also noted that watching a fight can cost a viewer $100.
He believes that both billionaires will be able to hold their own in the cage, given their athletic skills.
We will remind you that recently Elon Musk wrote a tweet, in which he challenged Mark Zuckerberg to a cage fight. The CEO of Meta responded to this call with a short message: “Send me the location.” In response, Elon Musk wrote only two words: Vegas Octagon. This is the name of the fight cage from the UFC in Las Vegas.
Many people are watching this story. They estimate the billionaires’ chances of success in the match and even place bets on the future winner. At the same time, it is worth paying attention to the talents of top managers. For example, Elon Musk says that he participated in street fights. But Mark Zuckerberg is an MMA fighter and wins jiu-jitsu tournaments.
