Two world famous billionaires have set out for a showdown as Twitter CEO Elon Musk has challenged jiu-jitsu-trained Mark Zuckerberg to a ‘cage match.’
Musk, who is 51 years of age, offered up the match after commenting under a post about Zuckerberg’s newest suspected project, which will reportedly be called Threads and rival Twitter.
‘I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options. At least it will be ‘sane.’ Was worried there for a moment,’ Musk commented.
After another user reminded the Tesla CEO that the Facebook founder, 39, ‘does jiu-jitsu now,’ Elon Musk responded. ‘I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,’ he replied.
Zuckerberg replied on his Instagram story, sharing a screenshot of Musk’s challenge, writing: ‘Send me location.’
Musk has trained in Kyokushin karate, taekwondo, judo and ‘Brazilian jiu-jitsu briefly’ throughout his life, he revealed on Joe Rogan’s podcast, and he’s shared a photo of himself fighting a sumo wrestler in the past.
However, Musk might not find the match to be as easy as he thinks as the Meta CEO, who recently placed in a jiu-jitsu tournament in May.
‘Maybe to some degree, your ability to keep doing interesting things is your willingness to be embarrassed again and go back to step one and start as a beginner, and get your ass kicked,’ Zuckerberg said on a podcast earlier this year.
