Fight with Zuckerberg will be livestreamed on X — Elon Musk

Must read

Elon Musk has said in a social media post that his proposed cage fight with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg would be livestreamed on the social media platform X, headed by Musk and formerly known as Twitter.

The two social media moguls have been egging each other into a mixed martial arts cage match in Las Vegas since June.

“Zuck v Musk fight will be livestreamed on X. All proceeds will go to charity for veterans,” Musk said in a post on X on Sunday, without giving any further details.

Earlier on Sunday, Musk had said on X that he was “lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight”, adding that he did not have time to work out so he brought the weights to be able to train.

When a user on X asked Musk the point of the fight, Musk responded by saying “It’s a civilized form of war. Men love war”.

There was no immediate comment from Meta or Zuckerberg.

The brouhaha began when 52-year-old Musk said in a June 20 post that he was “up for a cage match” with Zuckerberg, 39, who is trained in jiujitsu.

A day later, Zuckerberg, who has posted pictures of matches he has won on his company’s Instagram platform, asked Musk to “send location” for the proposed throwdown, to which Musk replied “Vegas Octagon”, referring to an events centre where mixed martial arts (MMA) championship bouts are held.
