In an unanticipated turn of events, tech heavyweights Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are gearing up for an unparalleled mixed martial arts (MMA) battle.
Musk recently started his MMA training and announced that the spectacle will be live-streamed on X/Twitter. The intriguing part is the proceeds of this unlikely duel will be dedicated to supporting US Veterans.
Musk threw down the gauntlet two months ago, challenging Zuckerberg to this outlandish cage match. The Facebook mogul’s acceptance was just as unexpected, with a simple “Send me location” response to Musk’s challenge.
The Venue and the Speculations
Musk’s choice for the battleground? The “Vegas Octagon.” While teasing his fighting strategy, Musk introduced a whimsical move he refers to as “The Walrus,” where he seemingly plans to immobilize his opponent by lying atop them and remaining stationary.
The grandeur of this event has sparked several theories about the potential venue. The most ambitious suggestion was the world wonder, the Roman Coliseum. Despite the uncertainty, Las Vegas remains the most probable location. Known as the world’s boxing capital, it’s the perfect setting for this tech titan tussle.
Regardless of the playful banter about their training regimen and diet, there is growing speculation that the duo is taking this unusual challenge earnestly.
Training Preparations and Buzz
Zuckerberg’s recent foray into MMA, including a backyard octagon, reportedly drew ire from his spouse. On the other hand, Musk has been spotted online engaging in fitness routines, including lifting dumbbells.
Musk’s commitment to training was confirmed in a tweet, where he humorously remarked, “Am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight. Don’t have time to work out, so I bring them to work.”
While the exact date of the anticipated showdown remains uncertain, the world waits in eager anticipation. Whenever it takes place, it will undoubtedly give tech enthusiasts and MMA fans much to discuss.
