The confrontation between the two richest people on the planet, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, could take place in the greatest arena in history.
The Italian government has officially approached the billionaires with a proposal to hold their duel in the Colosseum, having received the prior consent of potential rivals. According to TMZ, Musk and Zuckerberg have already notified UFC President Dana White of the proposal, who has taken on the challenge.
“There is a chance that the fight will take place in the Colosseum,” Elon Musk confirmed the news, leaving a corresponding entry on the social network.
The last time a Roman amphitheater, built in the first century AD, hosted a public event was in 2003, when Paul McCartney gave a benefit concert at the Colosseum.
The billionaires who own 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 the challenge.
Shortly thereafter, UFC President Dana White announced that both businessmen were as serious as possible and had already verbally agreed to fight in the strongest league in the world. According to the head of the organization, the fight of billionaires can lead one of the UFC numbered shows, the paid broadcast of which will cost one hundred dollars.
