In an unexpected turn of events, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta and Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla  have expressed their desire for a literal cage match.

This peculiar situation came about when Musk responded to a tweet discussing Zuckerberg's upcoming release of a rival social media platform called "Threads," aimed at outperforming Twitter.

It's worth noting that Musk has never been a supporter of Zuckerberg, as he has taken several opportunities in the past to mock Facebook's founder over their divergent stances on privacy and artificial intelligence.Living up to this  Musk has thrown yet another taunt Zuckerberg's way.

A Twitter user had warned Musk that he should watch out as Zuckerberg is perhaps into jiu-jitsu now.

In response, Musk quipped that he is up for the cage match.
Although Musk's tweet may have been intended as a joke, Zuckerberg couldn't overlook it and felt compelled to react. Taking to his Instagram account, the Facebook founder shared a snapshot of Musk's tweet and followed it up with a playful remark: "Send Me Location."

Zuckerberg's commitment to Brazilian jiu-jitsu is evident, as he has been actively honing his skills in the sport. Multiple snapshots and videos on his Instagram showcase his dedicated practice sessions with seasoned trainers. Notably, he proudly shared his recent achievement, triumphing in his debut jiu-jitsu tournament and securing well-deserved medals.

Zuckerberg appears to be quite confident in his ability to take on Musk in the ring, and surprisingly, the possibility of this bout actually happening seems very real. Musk responded to the news of Zuckerberg accepting the challenge by tweeting, "Vegas Octagon."

However, Musk's tweets suggest that he may not be taking the fight too seriously and sees it more as a humorous endeavor. He playfully mentioned a move he calls "The Walrus," where he simply lies on top of his opponent without doing much. Additionally, Musk humorously admitted that his workout routine mostly consists of picking up his kids and playfully tossing them in the air.
Certainly, should the match actually come to fruition, it would undoubtedly make waves in the media. Of course, we cannot expect it to rival the legendary 1971 "Fight of The Century" between boxing icons Ali and Frazier. Nonetheless, a showdown between Zuckerberg and Musk—both iconic and controversial tech CEOs—will undoubtedly captivate and symbolize the eccentricity of our modern era.
