Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is looking ripped ahead of his heavily-rumored clash with fellow social media mogul Elon Musk.
The billionaire tech gurus have been going back and forth with one another on social media, but their rivalry has since evolved into a full-blown spectacle after UFC President Dana White revealed that both men were 100% serious about competing against one another inside the Octagon. When and where the potential social media smackdown takes place is yet to be determined, but it’s clear that Zuckerberg is taking it very seriously, as evidenced by a series of photos shared by reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
‘The Last Stylebender’ shared a few snaps on Twitter of himself training alongside his City Kickboxing teammate Alexander Volkanovski and an absolutely shredded-looking Mark Zuckerberg.
“No fugazi with Mark,” Adesanya wrote. “This is serious business.”

‘The Zuck’ has begun to earn the respect of combat sports fans and fighters over the last year after the Meta CEO was spotted in multiple training videos showing off his ever-evolving skill set. He was also spotted competing in a jiu-jitsu tournament where he reportedly earned himself a gold medal. Of course, it helps to have the time and money available to train with some of the absolute best fighters in the world.
Adesanya’s tweet comes shortly after the Titan of Tesla was spotted training with UFC Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre. The former two-division champion posted a pic of himself alongside Musk and two other individuals after a training session.
“Great training session with 3 men I really admire. Combined IQ in this photo is 1000,” GSP wrote.
Whether or not Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk ever actually square off inside the Octagon remains to be seen, but you can’t deny they are both taking a genuine interest in the sport which is never a bad thing.
