The two billionaires who own the biggest social networks on the planet are ready to take their rivalry from business to the mixed martial arts cage.
“I’m ready for a cage match with him if he’s ready,” 51-year-old Elon Musk wrote on his social network, responding to a user who reminded him of Mark Zuckerberg’s success in jiu-jitsu.
“Send me a location,” Zuckerberg, 39, responded to a potential opponent with a phrase that has become a hallmark of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“The Octagon in Vegas,” Musk said. “I have a great technique in my arsenal, which I call “walrus”, when I just lie on the enemy and do nothing”
Initially, the skirmish between the billionaires was provoked by Musk’s remark that Zuckerberg was trying to crush himself and control the entire media information space on the planet.
“I’m sure the Earth can’t wait to be completely under Zuck’s heel, without any options,” Musk wrote, after which the user warned him, reporting on Zuckerberg’s success in jiu-jitsu.
UFC president, Dana White, took notice of the potential opponents’ dialogue and posted a post demonstrating his willingness to take over the organization of this fight.
Khabib Nurmagomedov also commented on the news, jokingly offering to fight two billionaires in Dagestan.
“Dagestan!”, – the Russian wrote in response to the publication of Dan White.
Note that not so long ago, Mark Zuckerberg took part in his first jiu-jitsu tournament, becoming the owner of a gold and silver medal in two disciplines. He also published videos from MMA training sessions, and repeatedly appeared at UFC events in the company of the head of the strongest league in the world.
