Elon Musk Challenges Mark Zuckerberg To Fight Him In His Backyard

Elon Musk, the possessor of X, has issued a challenge to Mark Zuckerberg, suggesting a confrontation between them for the upcoming day. Musk has extended an invitation to engage in a physical altercation at the residence of the Meta CEO, specifically in the yard area, scheduled for Monday.

Expressing his thoughts on his Instagram Story, Zuckerberg conveyed skepticism regarding Musk’s genuine intentions regarding the proposed fight.

“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious, and it’s time to move on,” Zuckerberg wrote. “I offered a real date. Dana White offered to make this a legit competition for charity. Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead.”

Zuckerberg continued, “If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise, time to move on. I’m going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously.”

Walter Isaacson, who authored Musk’s biography, shared a snapshot of a conversation between the two individuals. In this exchange, Musk presented the option of either a genuine or a practice bout, to take place within the premises of the Meta magnate’s property.

“Wanna do a practice bout at your house next week?” Musk said in a text.

Zuckerberg replied, “If you still want to do a real MMA fight, then you should train on your own and let me know when you’re ready to compete. I don’t want to keep hyping something that will never happen, so you should either decide you’re going to do this, and do it soon, or we should move on.”

“I will be in Palo Alto on Monday,” Musk replied. “Let’s fight in your Octagon.”

Musk added that he hasn’t undergone extensive training, though he did engage in some light sparring with Lex Friedman, the host of a podcast.

“While I think it is very unlikely, given our size difference, perhaps you are a modern day Bruce Lee and will somehow win,” Musk added.

Subsequently, Musk posted a tweet indicating his intention to visit Zuckerberg’s residence the following day, with the purpose of insisting on a physical altercation.

On Sunday morning, Elon Musk suggested the idea of a mixed martial arts cage match involving Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, possibly providing him with a convenient reason to postpone or cancel the fight.
