What started off as harmless banter quickly escalated into an aggressive physical encounter and subsequent reports that both would compete in a UFC cage matchup.
Dana White confirmed those reports are now true, citing both athletes as “dead serious” about making this happen – perhaps this was why UFC closed off their Las Vegas venue to media on Saturday afternoon.
Elon Musk is an esteemed businessman who is well known for founding and investing in several technology companies. His uncanny knack of turning every project into success speaks for itself; his work ethic is truly impressive as is expected of his employees; and he often works long hours while constantly pushing the limits of technology forward.
Musk is an intriguing individual; he’s passionate about what he does and believes deeply in his vision, while remaining highly intelligent and driven despite any challenges to reaching his goals.
He experienced an extremely painful childhood and has spoken openly about it. Bullying both at home and school affected his wellbeing immensely; yet he credits loneliness with fuelling creativity and drive. Without these early challenges he wouldn’t be as successful today.
In 1995, he co-founded Global Link Information Network – later rebranded Zip2 – an Internet startup providing local businesses with online presence. The business became an instantaneous success and brought in significant profits for him.
Musk founded Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) in 2002 as a spacecraft manufacturing firm dedicated to commercial space travel. SpaceX has already successfully delivered cargo to the International Space Station and plans on sending astronauts there in future missions; additionally it has built gigafactories – massive plants dedicated to manufacturing lithium ion batteries – across its facilities.
Georges St-Pierre stands as one of the greatest UFC fighters ever. Retiring with 13 consecutive wins under his belt and holding onto his record win total for welterweight title fights, GSP also created his apparel line BlueChip which includes fleur-de-lis emblems which represent Quebec in Canada as well as tributes to Leonardo Da Vinci; one of St-Pierre’s inspirations.
At 15, he began training MMA. By his first professional match, he had already won by TKO (punches) over Ivan Menjivar and by submission with an arm-bar against Travis Galbraithat – two more victories prior to moving up into UFC competition.
St-Pierre made his UFC debut against Matt Hughes, an opponent he once idolized. Although confident, St-Pierre felt nervous before their fight. In round 2, however, St-Pierre used an incredible superman punch that knocked Hughes out. From thereon out, St-Pierre controlled every aspect of their battle.
Recently, it has been speculated that St-Pierre may be ready to return to MMA fighting, with reports and photographs suggesting otherwise. Photos showed him training alongside Alexander Volkanovski; during this time off the octagon he has focused on improving his fitness by training with some of the top competitors in his sport.
Israel Adesanya has quickly emerged as one of the most promising young fighters in MMA. Hailing from New Zealand, Adesanya uses an innovative style that blends striking and grappling to dominate his division and remain one of the front runners for the middleweight championship. Following an outstanding performance against Marvin Vettori he received both a Reebok sponsorship deal as well as Performance of the Night bonus from Reebok; Peak Milk and ENGAGE also endorse him.
Adesanya is also an accomplished kickboxer, winning the Glory Middleweight Contender tournament in 2016 before going on to challenge Jason Wilnis for the title fight. Additionally, he has competed for various promotions including Australian Fighting Championship.
After his win at UFC 287, Adesanya was asked about his credentials at 205 pounds. Since training hard to prove himself as one of the top contenders in his division – winning five times already including four stoppage victories – five victories can speak volumes!
Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Meta, recently shared an Instagram photo showing himself alongside Adesanya and Volkanovski and captioned it with “no fugazi with Mark”, making a clear reference to an impending cage fight between these billionaires. Mark flexed his six-pack just like Adesanya and Volkanovski; this shows just how dramatically training MMA affects one’s physique.
Alexander Volkanovski, commonly referred to as “The Great,” is an Australian fighter renowned for his accomplishments. With 22 wins under his belt – two Featherweight titles included – as well as training grappling and mastery of Jiu Jitsu skills that have garnered him many plaudits, Volkanovski is considered a serious contender for UFC Lightweight glory.
Volkanovski was born in Shellharbour, New South Wales to Macedonian and Greek parents. At an early age he began training wrestling, winning an Australian Championship at 15 years old. Later he focused on rugby league instead and won the 2010 Mick Cronin Medal as Group 7 player for Warilla Gorillas of NSW Premiership rugby league competition. Additionally he competed in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition and earned two Featherweight Australian Fighting Championship titles.
Mark Zuckerberg recently showcased his muscular physique alongside UFC fighters Israel Adesanya and Alex Volkanovski on Instagram, garnering over 12 million likes with this post on Meta.com owner’s page.
Training was underway ahead of a potential cage fight with Elon Musk, who recently shared some of his jiu-jitsu abilities on social media. Elon is also a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) and has been following various fighters on Twitter and Instagram.
