Hours after the two richest men on the planet, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, agreed to meet in a cage, UFC President Dana White set about organizing a historic fight.
“Mark Zuckerberg wrote, ‘send me the location’, repeating the phrase that Khabib Nurmagomedov said when he was challenged, and today I spoke with both Elon and Mark – both guys are absolutely serious about making this fight,” said the head of the strongest world leagues in an interview with TMZ Sports. “They both said yes, we will do it. First I spoke to Mark and he asked me ‘Is he serious?’ and I said ‘I don’t know – let me ask him’. I asked Elon and he said, ‘yes, I’m absolutely serious'”
“This will be the biggest fight in the history of the world and will break all pay TV sales records. You don’t have to be a fighting fan to be interested in this fight – everyone will want to see it. Hundreds of millions of dollars will go to charity because these guys don’t need the money. If they’re serious, I make a living organizing fights that people want to see, and we’ll find a way to organize it. I think it will be an event with professional fights, and Elon and Mark will lead the show. It’s too early to talk about the date – I talked to them for an hour and a half. As for the price, I think the pay-per-view will cost a hundred dollars.”
According to the president of the UFC, both billionaires have fighting experience and skills in martial arts.
“Mark takes the sport very seriously, trains very hard – he is good at standing and good at jiu-jitsu. Elon told me that he was into martial arts, doing jiu-jitsu, and said that he had a lot of fights while growing up in South Africa.
Recall that the billionaires, who are the owners of the two most popular social networks in the world, agreed to fight after Elon Musk accused his opponent of wanting to take control of the entire information space on the planet, and challenged him to a fight, and Mark Zuckerberg accepted his challenge .
