Elon Musk has accepted an offer from Georges St-Pierre to train him for a social media smackdown with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The combat sports community has been abuzz as of late with talks of a clash between billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg quickly going from “What if?” to “Holy sh*t, this might actually happen.” With the potential to generate hundreds of millions of dollars, everyone is chomping at the bit to get a piece of the pie, including UFC Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre.
Taking to Twitter, ‘Rush’ reached out to Musk, letting the Tesla Motors CEO know that he is a big fan and would be honored to train him ahead of his first appearance inside the Octagon.
@elonmusk I’m a huge fan of yours and it would be an absolute honor to help you and be your training partner for the challenge against Zuckerberg,” GSP tweeted.
Two days later, Musk responded to St-Pierre and accepted his offer.
“Ok, let’s do it,” Musk replied, accompanied by two fire emojis.
Ok, let’s do it 🔥🔥
