The ‘Musk vs Zuckerberg cage fight’ is happening, and not only that, it’ll also be livestreamed on Musk’s platform X.

The owner of Twitter / X himself said as much in a tweet.

“Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X. All proceeds will go to charity for veterans,” he tweeted.

It all started out as a joke but the two CEOs are apparently taking it seriously, and despite Musk’s mother’s concern, it seems both CEOs are ready for the fight.

Who’s going to win?

Well, the fight is almost certainly going to be staged and scripted but people are mostly putting their money on Zuckerberg.

A long-time jiu-jitsu practitioner, the Meta boss has just earned his blue belt ahead of his upcoming potential cage fight with Elon Musk

Taking to Instagram, Zuckerberg revealed he had earned the ‘second-adult rank’ in the sport, proving he’s more than capable of taking on his tech rival. 

“Honored to be promoted to compete at blue belt for @guerrillajjsanjose team,” he wrote. 

The internet was sent into a tailspin when news first broke that two of the richest men on Earth were going to go head-to-head in a cage match. 

Last month, Elon, 51, and Mark, 39, taunted each other with a series of online posts until they seemingly confirmed they were revving up for an actual physical fight.

In a tweet – sorry – an X, the Tesla founder announced that he was “up for a cage fight if [Zuckerberg] is”.

Shortly after, the Meta CEO took him up on the offer, sharing a response on his own platform, Instagram, “Send Me Location.”

As Zuckerberg gets into shape for the upcoming brawl, people are wondering how Musk is going to prepare for the event.

However, as it turns out, he is also taking the challenge seriously.

Pictures have since circulated showing Musk training with a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and podcaster Lex Fridman.

Funnily enough, Fridman has trained with both billionaires, praising them both. 

“It’s really inspiring to see Elon and Mark doing martial arts, but I think the world is served far better if they train martial arts but not fight in the cage,” he said. 

“That said, as Elon says, the most entertaining outcome is the most likely… I’m there for them, no matter what.”

All this prep has everyone wondering when and where the fight between the two tech tycoons will actually happen.

We don’t know for sure yet, but rumor has it the fight might happen in Nevada at some point in 2024.

In the meantime, Happy Punch Promo has shared an Instagram post showcasing the official poster for the fight.

“Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg: The greatest fight of our generation,” the caption reads.
