Elon Musk has made a major announcement regarding his potential fight against Mark Zuckerberg.

Recently, Musk and Zuckerberg agreed to fight one another after the two billionaires took aim at one another on social media. After they agreed to the fight, UFC president Dana White said the fight would happen under the UFC banner and he would promote it and make it the biggest fight ever as he said it would do $1 billion in revenue.

“It’s one of those fights that if we did do that, I would build a killer undercard with tons of great fights, and then you’d have the main event,” White said on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast about Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg. “Think about how big that fight is: two of the richest, most powerful guys in the f****** world are going to fight on the biggest stage ever. Everybody would [pay for it]! Who the f*** doesn’t want to see that fight? Who doesn’t want to see that fight? Everybody would watch it. That’s the kind of fight your f****** grandmother would watch. It’s a huge — [Donald] Trump would have to fight [Joe] Biden for a fight to be bigger than that.

“I think this thing does a billion dollars in revenue. A billion dollars. The biggest fight of all time was Conor [McGregor] and Floyd [Mayweather] which did four-point-something million pay-per-view buys, and the second-biggest one was Floyd and Manny [Pacquiao] which was literally right behind it,” White concluded about Musk vs. Zuckerberg.

Just recently, Dana White also said he was working with Italy to have the fight take place at the Colosseum. However, taking to Twitter on Friday, Elon Musk claimed his fight against Mark Zuckerberg won’t be under the UFC banner.

“The fight will be managed by my and Zuck’s foundations (not UFC). Livestream will be on this platform and Meta. Everything in camera frame will be ancient Rome, so nothing modern at all. I spoke to the PM of Italy and Minister of Culture. They have agreed on an epic location,” Musk tweeted.

Musk also revealed all proceeds of the fight will go to veterans, as he knows this fight makes a ton of money for charity.

“Everything done will pay respect to the past and present of Italy. And all proceeds go to veterans,” Musk added.

As of right now, the exact date of Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg is uncertain. But, if it does come to fruition, the fight won’t be involved with Dana White or the UFC.
