After multiple jabs from Twitter/Tesla owner Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Elon has challenged his rival to an MMA battle. Both billionaires have since begun training together alongside elite fighting talent including Georges St-Pierre of MMA fame and BJJ black belt Lex Fridman as coaches.

Early August saw billionaires reignite talks for their matchup and suggest it take place at Italy’s historic Colosseum and live-streamed on their X social media platform.

Like most internet users, you might assume a potential cage match between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg would just be two billionaires having fun together. But according to UFC president Dana White, this fight is “absolutely dead serious”; in fact, White claims it could break pay-per-view records and generate hundreds of millions in profit for both men, money which they would donate directly to charity afterwards.

Zuckerberg has been training hard for the fight, enlisting some heavy hitters as his trainers. Adesanya and Volkanovski, respectively UFC middleweight and featherweight champions. Together they boast more than 50 wins across their combined UFC careers while remaining undefeated at present.

Adesanya and Volkanovski recently trained on a speedboat with Mark Zuckerberg for some MMA practice on kickboxing, grappling, and flipping techniques. Zuckerberg is a big fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) training with Adesanya and Volkanovski for weeks now – recently posting videos to Instagram showing them. Their training seems to have done wonders for his physique too – looking ripped and ready for battle even as his wife, Priscilla Chan has attended multiple UFC events with them both attending.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champions have spent immense amounts of time training at an elite level that combines conditioning and strength training, along with traditional BJJ drills and rolling. Successful players often dedicate more than 10,000 hours per year training – dedicating themselves to refining their skills. To become champions, it takes consistent training coupled with an unyielding mental attitude.

Yet despite his status as an MMA fan and competitor, some critics have cast doubt upon whether Zuckerberg can hold his own in an Octagon battle. They note his recent jiu-jitsu achievements being more impressive than UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor’s accomplishments in fighting.
