Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg and Dana White

The battle between billionaires has taken on a life all its own.

What started as harmless banter on social media between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, two world-famous inventors, has now become the possibility of a MMA match. UFC President Dana White wants to make this a reality.

Facebook founder Zuckerberg attended UFC Vegas 61 in October, where Yan Xiaonan beat Mackenzie Dern by majority decision. It was strange to see the creator of Facebook at a UFC fight, but Zuckerberg’s interest in MMA has grown since. White and Musk, despite neither Zuckerberg or Musk having a professional fighting background, are seeing the possibilities.

White stated on The Pat McAfee show that “Zuckerberg is very serious about this.” “He is very serious about this sport. He has been training and practicing for years. He’s now starting to compete at jiu jitsu competitions, and from the conversations I had with Elon about martial arts, Elon also trained. He has done jiu jitsu, and says: “Listen, I was raised in South Africa. I’ve fought a lot.” It’s not as if I’ve never fought before.

“These two tech guys are fighting, but nobody believes it. They want to fight, and this is real. We’ll see what happens.” You know I’m on it. This will be the largest fight ever seen in history. I believe it will break a world record if it happens. “I like to put on fights people want see, like this.”

The “freakshows” are what the public loves to watch. In 2017, the crossover boxing fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr., then-UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor and 4.3 million PPV purchases made it the second most popular fight in history. This number was close behind Mayweather’s eagerly anticipated dream match in 2015 with Manny Pacquiao, which sold 4.6 million PPVs.

Musk vs. Zuckerberg is a special attraction that will be seen only once. White said that if the match were to take place, it would be an exhibit, noting how different both men’s sizes are. White, however, would use the spotlight that would be guaranteed if it were to take place in the UFC Octagon, and would not just focus on the charity match. He would also include rising stars, as well as real talent, for the entire card.

White explained that if you were going to charge $100, which is what this item would cost, and the guys could raise hundreds of millions for charity, then you should make it entertaining. “At the very least, when people turn off their TVs on Saturday nights and stay at home, they say, ‘Well, we’ve seen some great fights, anyway.’

This is a crossover fight for people who don’t usually watch fights. Women, older women or younger women, anyone that doesn’t care about fights can enjoy this.
