- Dana White confirmed that Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg would be an exhibition match
- The UFC boss said that they are trying to figure out how to work on the pair’s size difference
UFC president Dana White guarantees the talked-about fight between famous billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg is already being discussed. White said there is a huge difference in the pair’s size and they are trying to work it out but definitely, it would be categorized as an exhibition match.
Speaking to The Pat McAfee Show, White revealed that he has been serving as the middleman of what would be the biggest fight in history. However, the UFC boss also admitted that the only thing he could confirm at this point was that Musk vs. Zuckerberg wouldn’t be sanctioned by a commission.
“I’ve been talking to both of them back and forth, [Elon and I] have a call in about five minutes here,” White said. “Listen. First of all, if they both agree and they both say, let’s start here. Elon Musk is six foot two, two-hundred and twenty pounds. Mark Zuckerberg is not, okay. There’s a huge difference, this thing would be like UFC 1 for Christ’s sake.”
“We’d have to figure out the weight stuff, I don’t know how the commissions will look at this thing… Well, it would be an exhibition, it wouldn’t be sanctioned by a commission,” he added. “There’s still a lot of things you would have to work through to make this fight happen. But, what I love and respect is that both of these guys are down, they both want to do it. They both want to fight, for people that aren’t even fight fans, this is fun. It’s fun to talk about, it’s fun to think about, you know me man, I’m in the middle trying to put the pieces together and see what we can do.”
Elon should train Hard
Following the brief yet solid exchange between Musk and Zuck on social media about taking on each other inside the cage, some fans suggest that the Tesla Motors CEO better start training as the Facebook founder already has a proven track record in grappling.
It can be recalled that Zuckerberg won medals in his first BJJ tournament competition but Musk seems to be not running short in support. In fact, former kickboxer and famous internet personality Andrew Tate offered his services to train Musk.
Meta banned me everywhere for telling the truth about vaccines.
But now we can restore honour with a strike at the enemy clans leader.
I will train you @elonmusk.
You will not lose.
