Twitter CEO Elon Musk has said that if there is an in-person fight between him and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it would be streamed on X, formerly known as Twitter.  

Elon Musk took to Twitter to say, "Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X" and also added, "All proceeds will go to charity for veterans.”

In June, Musk and Zuckerberg agreed to a 'cage match' face-off.

While Zuckerberg is trained in martial arts and even completed his first jiu-jitsu tournament earlier this year, reportedly. Musk, on the other hand, posted about training for their fight by lifting weights. He tweeted saying, "Don't have time to work out, so I just bring them to work."

Elon Musk has previously announced many things that he did not follow through and it cannot be guaranteed that this fight between the two tech billionaires will actually happen, his tweets draw attention every time. 

How did the cage fight decision come up?

When Meta prepared to release its Twitter rival called Threads, Elon Musk tweeted said that the world was becoming exclusively under "Zuck's thumb" with no other options. This is when a Twitter user reminded him that Zuckerberg has jiu-jitsu training. 

“I'm up for a cage match if he is lol,” Musk wrote.

Representatives of X, Meta and Ultimate Fighting Championship, which owns the venue where the fight might take place, didn't immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

Musk wants to use X to create a "digital town square," thus he is pushing to stream the footage live there. His widely-publicized Twitter Spaces launch event in May, where Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared his candidature for president, was marred by technical difficulties and a delay of about 30 minutes.

After many people attempted to listen to the audio-only event, Musk claimed that the issues were caused by "straining" servers. The number of listeners listed, even at their peak, was only approximately 420,000, a far cry from the millions of people that televised presidential announcements draw.
