Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, expressed his willingness to participate in a cage fight with Zuckerberg through a post on his social media platform.
In response, the Facebook founder and Meta’s CEO and chairman shared a screenshot of Musk’s message on Instagram, captioning it with “send me location” for his 12 million followers to see.
Musk, with over 144 million Twitter followers, then suggested “Vegas Octagon” as the venue, referring to the eight-sided fighting arena used in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is headquartered in Las Vegas.
A spokesperson for Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, stated that they had no additional comments to offer regarding the viral social media posts. The online community enthusiastically speculated about the potential outcome of the fight and shared memes, including mock posters.
Musk, who acquired Twitter in a $44 billion takeover last October, humorously mentioned a move he called “The Walrus,” where he would lie on top of his opponent and do nothing. He also tweeted about his limited workout routine, jokingly stating that he only exercises when lifting and tossing his children in the air.
On the other hand, Zuckerberg showcased his prowess in jiu-jitsu last month by winning gold and silver medals in his first tournament.
