UFC President Dana White isn’t holding his breath on a fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg coming to fruition.
Musk and Zuckerberg garnered massive attention when the two entertained the possibility of fighting one another. Musk responded to a fan on social media, and said that he’d be willing to have a “cage fight” with the Meta founder. Zuckerberg channeled his inner Khabib Nurmagomedov, telling Musk to, “Send me location.”
It didn’t take White long to try to jump on the fight in an effort to promote it. The UFC even released Zuckerberg vs. Musk shirts. At one point, however, Musk claimed the fight would not be under the UFC banner.

Dana White Doubts Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg Happens
As time progressed, the bout appeared to be less likely. Zuckerberg claimed he was moving on due to a lack of true interest on Musk’s end. During an interview with Charly Arnolt of Outkick, Dana White said the fight would’ve been massive for charity.
“Listen, I like both guys,” White said. “One of the things that I try not to do is judge people. You know, I don’t want to be judged by my politics. I’m a believer in what I believe in, and there’s certain things that I feel a certain way about, and I don’t judge people by theirs. I don’t know exactly where all those guys stand. I don’t get into that. How I judge people is how they are with me and how we interact with each other. So, I like Mark a lot, and I like Elon. I don’t know who would win. Let me tell you who would win in that fight would be whatever charities were picked to donate the money to. They would be the absolute winners, ’cause I think that thing would do a billion dollars in revenue, and they wanted 90 percent of that money to go to charity. So, it would’ve been the biggest charity event ever held in history, especially for one night. It would’ve helped a lot of people.”
The UFC boss went on to give his bleak outlook on Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg.
“I don’t know, I never say never, but probably not,” White said.
