Mark Zuckerberg agrees to Elon Musk’s cage fight challenge | Tech News

Billionaire tech rivals Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have agreed to take on each other in a cage match.

Twitter owner Musk, 51, said on his social media platform that he was ready to “have a cage fight” with Zuckerberg, 39.

The Facebook founder, Meta CEO and chairman then posted a “send my location” post to his 12 million Instagram followers, complete with screenshots of messages from the Tesla and SpaceX CEOs.

In a tweet to the site’s more than 144 million followers, Musk referred to the “Vegas octagon,” referring to the eight-sided cage used in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in Las Vegas Fighting arena.

A spokesman for Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, said he had “nothing to add” to the social media posts, which went viral as users speculated on who would win the contest and posted memes, including Model poster.

Musk, who completed the $44bn (£35bn) takeover of Twitter last October, joked: “I had a great move, I called it the ‘Walrus’, and I just lay on my opponent ,do nothing.”

He also tweeted: “I hardly ever work out, except for picking up my kids and throwing them in the air.”

Zuckerberg, on the other hand, won gold and silver in his first Jiu-Jitsu tournament last month.

“Went in my first Jiu-Jitsu competition and won some medals for Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu 🥇🥈. Thanks @davecamarillo @khaiwu @intense0ne for training me!” Zuckerberg captioned the post.
