- Elon Musk had already linked up with Georges St-Pierre for a training session
- The Tesla Motors CEO admits he still needs more training
Elon Musk had just finished a training session with former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Judging by his comment afterward, it appears that the Tesla Motors CEO’s MMA skills need more honing.
There’s a lot to Work On
As most of us know, Musk has been looking forward to his fight against fellow billionaire Mark Zuckerberg. A handful of big-name MMA fighters have reached out to train with Musk, including GSP and he recently did one session with “Rush.”
Shortly after the training, Lex Fridman posted a photo of Musk and St-Pierre. In the comments section, Musk did not shy away from hinting that his fighting skill level is certainly far from great at this point.
Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training.

“Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training,” Musk tweeted.
Zuck is also Working
On the other hand, Zuckerberg has also been working on his MMA skills. Unlike Musk, Zuck has already competed in a grappling tournament but he still received training proposals from MMA superstars. In fact, reigning UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former UFC double champion Henry Cejudo have already let the Facebook founder know that they would be happy to train with him.
The Zuckerberg vs. Musk fight has been all over the headlines and more and more MMA personalities are beginning to believe that this could be the “biggest fight in history.”
UFC president Dana White has been actively involved in making it happen and the MMA community has been holding its breath for further updates.
