Mark Zuckerberg takes his martial arts (MMA) training seriously – so seriously that he recently trained alongside actual UFC champions! Recently, Facebook CEO was seen training alongside Alexander Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya from their middleweight divisions!
Rumors of a Zuckerberg-Musk fight have circulated, even prompting UFC President Dana White to mention it as possible future fight. White believes a super fight could break pay-per-view records while raising millions for charity.
Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has built an octagon in his back garden.
Mark Zuckerberg may soon make history as one of the world’s most powerful technology entrepreneurs by entering a ring for his maiden mixed martial arts fight. And in preparation, the Facebook and Instagram parent company Meta CEO has gone above and beyond by building an octagon in his backyard to train for this potentially life-altering contest – leaving his wife, Priscilla Chan, furious over it and engaging in an exchange on Instagram that has left both parties furious.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg began taking his MMA training seriously when he began competing in Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournaments and making an impressionful mark in UFC training sessions, training alongside top fighters such as Israel Adesanya (pictured here) and Alex Volkanovski (who has won over 50 UFC fights between them). Zuckerberg even posted an Instagram photo showing himself flexing his muscles alongside both.
But it remains to be seen whether Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg can compete successfully against an established professional MMA fighter such as Dana White. According to reports by TMZ, White has quietly worked behind-the-scenes to help Zuck prepare for his fight with Musk, who previously stated he’d be willing to compete if both parties trained properly for it.
Elon’s claim that an MMA bout between him and Zuckerberg won’t take place marks an enormous setback to Zuckerberg’s plans to enter a high-profile fight, after UFC president Dana White previously lambasted the sport’s pursuit of such fights as Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz. As Elon says a bout won’t occur between them now appears unlikely.
Elon’s latest tweet indicates the fight may resume; according to it, he spoke with Italy’s Prime Minister about holding a Colosseum match where proceeds would benefit veterans. He reiterates that the fight will be managed by his and Zuckerberg’s foundations rather than UFC, with live streaming taking place through Threads Meta app he recently unveiled. Though still somewhat in the realm of fantasy, UFC 223 seems closer to reality than when this whole thing began. Perhaps this time it will truly become a battle between billionaires.

Mark Zuckerberg’s wife Priscilla Chan is furious.
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame recently built an octagon in his backyard despite not exactly meeting Priscilla Chan’s wishes. Chan does not support her husband’s martial arts (MMA) training for their two daughters and doesn’t condone Priscilla’s involvement in backyard fights – “I wouldn’t let my daughter train for one,” Chan stated on the podcast This Week in Google.
Chan is worried about how mixed martial arts (MMA) will affect their children’s health, believing it to be harmful and should be banned as she’s already heard reports of young fighters suffering PTSD due to participation. Furthermore, she maintains that this sport can have detrimental impacts on families including increased levels of stress and depression.
Mark Zuckerberg is an American billionaire best known as the founder of social media platform Facebook. Established in 2004, Facebook went public in May 2012 after going through multiple financing rounds and underwent two acquisitions by Facebook itself in 2016: Instagram (purchased) and WhatsApp (messenger service acquired). Alongside his wife Priscilla Chan, they established the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), with an aim of using technology to address some of society’s greatest challenges through funding solutions.
The duo has dedicated their work to improving healthcare, education and other aspects of quality of life for people worldwide. In line with this commitment they have pledged to give away 99% of their Facebook stake during their lives.
Recently, Zuckerberg has hinted at making his MMA debut and taken training seriously. He participated in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition earlier this year and won handily, even outlasting some of the world’s top competitors. Additionally, he’s trained with some of the sport’s premier coaches such as black belt trainer Mikey Musumeci and world champion coach Dave Camarillo.
Last month, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan attended a UFC event together. Dana White joined them and their two daughters in the front row of cheering fighters, while Chan covered her eyes during some more graphic moments of fight action. Zuckerberg and Chan are raising their children in an honest way, setting strict limits on screen time and assigning chores. Their aim is to teach their daughters the value of hard work instead of expecting everything to come their way easily. Furthermore, they try to limit travel expenditure and are cognizant of its effects on others, including maintaining their own vegetable garden and growing produce in it – as well as being vegans who try not to buy meat from supermarkets or restaurants.
