Watch: Mark Zuckerberg Accepts Elon Musk’s Cage Fight Challenge
It looks like this beef might actually make if off the internet and into the ring.
Mark Zuckerberghas seemingly accepted a challenge from Elon Musk to face off in a cage match. This unlikely matchup is the result of rising tensions between the two CEOs as news broke that Meta has begun to create a product that could compete with Twitter, which Musk finalized his purchase of in October 2022.
This showdown originated when a Twitter user seemed to poke fun at Zuckerberg’s jiu jitsu videos on Instagram, warning Musk that he “better be careful,” to which the 51-year-old replied, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”
And what might have started as a joke became much more serious when Zuckerberg posted a screenshot of Musk’s challenge to his June 21 Instagram Story with the caption, “Send Me Location.” The 39-year-old’s story also included a reply to Musk’s proposal that read, “Lol I love you Elon but you better start training.
And despite this matchup being on nobody’s 2023 bingo card, it looks like it might really be happening. When news broke of Zuckerberg’s acceptance, the SpaceX founder tweeted a proposed location for the physical confrontation. Musk simply said, “Vegas Octagon.”
