Musk claims that his cage match against Zuckerberg will be shown on X

Elon Musk claims that if he and Mark Zuckerberg got into a physical altercation, it would be live-streamed on his social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

The two tech billionaires reportedly decided to compete in a “cage match” in late June. In reality, Zuckerberg has experience in mixed martial arts, and the CEO of Facebook’s parent company Meta recently wrote about winning his first jiu-jitsu event.

The Musk v. Zuck duel will be live-streamed on X, Musk stated in a statement on the website on Sunday. “All proceeds will benefit veteran charities.”

Musk claimed earlier on Sunday that he was weightlifting to prepare for the fight. I just bring them to work because I don’t have time to work out, Musk wrote.

It remains to be seen whether Musk and Zuckerberg will actually enter the ring in Las Vegas, especially given that Musk frequently tweets about action but doesn’t actually do it.

However, the banter has drawn attention, even if their agreement to a cage match is just a joke. It all began when Musk, who owns X, replied to a tweet about Meta getting ready to launch Threads, a new Twitter competitor.

He made fun of the idea that the world would soon be “exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options,” but a Twitter user quickly warned Musk in jest about Zuckerberg’s power.

Musk wrote, “I’m up for a cage match if he is, lol.” Emails requesting comment from X, Meta, and Ultimate Fighting Championship, which owns the location where the bout would occur, were not immediately returned.

Although his highly-publicized Twitter Spaces launch event in May with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announcing his candidacy was plagued with technical difficulties and a close-to-half-hour delay, Musk’s push to stream the footage live on X comes as he hopes to make the platform into a “digital town square.”

Because so many people were attempting to listen to the audio-only event, Musk claimed that the issues were caused by “straining” servers.

The number of listeners listed, even at their peak, was only approximately 420,000, a far cry from the millions of people that televised presidential announcements draw.
