- Tesla CEO Elon Musk has challenged Mark Zuckerberg to a cage fight
- The Facebook chief accepted the challenge, asking for a venue for the fight
- Tensions are up between the two tech billionaires as Meta plans to launch a rival app of Twitter
YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) — If the rivalry between social media giants Twitter (X Corp) and Facebook (Meta) was not fun enough, you could soon see their owners trash each other. No, seriously. Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg could be caught in a cage fight, beating the crap out of each other to the finish.
The challenge came from Musk (of course, who is surprised?), and Zuckerberg gladly accepted it. Everyone is now excited and can’t wait to see the tech billionaires walk the talk. Hopefully, the Tesla CEO doesn’t chicken out because he is probably getting whooped into pulp.
Mark Zuckerberg recently claimed to have completed “the Murph Challenge” workout in less than 40 minutes. The CrossFit Murph Challenge is a demanding assessment of both physical and mental resilience, designed to pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of the late Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy.
This challenging workout entails completing a one-mile run, followed by 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and concluding with another one-mile run, all performed while wearing a weighted vest.
Musk probably didn’t know this or hoped his “shit talk” would go unnoticed. But luck wasn’t in his corner this time, and it most likely won’t be in the cage during the fight either.
Elon Musk throws a stupid challenge to Zuckerberg
The Tesla CEO’s bizarre challenge came when crypto investor and IBC Group CEO Mario Nawfal tagged him in a Twitter post. In detail, the write-up narrated Meta’s upcoming social media platform. Dubbed “Threads”, the product is envisioned to compete with Twitter.
Seeing a serious threat from the upcoming app has unnerved Musk. Responding to the post, the new Twitter chief tried to crack a lame joke.
“I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options,”he wrote.
His big talk didn’t go unnoticed. One user advised him to be careful as Zuckerberg has been getting fit recently.
But instead of listening to the same voice, he decided to go one step further by challenging him to a fight.
“I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,”he bragged.
Mark Zuckerberg ready to put Musk in his place
Granted, Elon Musk’s challenge could just be a joke. Or it could be just another day of Elon being Elon. Regardless, Mark Zuckerberg was not about to let his big talk go just like that.
Responding to Musk, the Meta CEO gladly accepted the challenge. He shared Musk’s tweet on his Instagram story and asked for a location.
Considering how bulky and fit he has become, it is no surprise that he readily accepted the challenge. He could probably knock Musk out within the first few minutes if the duo went into a cage.
I mean, no disrespect to Elon whatsoever, but there is no way in hell he can overpower Zuckerberg. The dude is ripped and fast. He takes his fitness seriously. He has transformed himself into a beast.
Meanwhile, the best Musk can probably do is sit on the Meta Chief, rendering him unable to move. No, I am not body-shaming him- I would never. I am just pointing out what he hinted at on Twitter.
“I have this great move that I call ‘The Walrus,’ where I just lie on top of my opponent and do nothing,”he wrote.
Say what you want, but if that is seriously his strategy, good luck to Musk. In any case, he has already responded to Zuckerberg. And where does Musk want to fight his opponent? The Vegas Octagon- a possible reference to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ring.
We are all hoping and praying this fight takes place. Enough of the tech rivalry between the two. We need to see this fight. To make it worthwhile, they could organize a charity event. All funds raised can go to an organization doing great social work. Heck, Musk can donate it to a Doge (I mean dog) care center.
So what’s it going to be, Elon? We’ll convince Zuckerberg to let you fight from the Blue corner if you want to retain your Twitter colors.
