- In 2014 Zuckerberg invited Musk to his home to discuss AI, which Musk declined and took public shots at Zuck’s businesses, this was the start of the feud
- After news of “Threads”, Zuckerberg’s Twitter alternative, broke, Musk said he was up for a cage match
With Zuckerberg notoriously having little public sense of humor, he instantly accepted
- Musk is the underdog with the sportsbooks, with most sites expecting a Zuckerberg win, partly due to his recent BJJ success
Ever the publicist, Musk suggested the fight should occur on X, formerly Twitter, with any profits going to veteran charities. However, Zuckerberg hit back, saying it should be on a more reliable platform. This is unlikely to have cooled relations between the two men and could make for a more interesting fight.
With many blockchains showing interest, particularly Dogecoin, which has a link to Musk, it could be an example of new technology being used to help facilitate streaming for the first time.
Despite the posturing between the two men, the charity claim is likely to be true. As they’re both billionaires, they do not need extra money, and it could be an excellent example of philanthropy. The biggest question is, will they go through the physical pain and complete the bout?
In terms of experience, Zuckerberg has far more traditional combat experience. He’s entered and won a number of BJJ tournaments, giving him legitimate tournament fighting experience. Although Musk claims to have been in street fights in South Africa, he’s known for embellishing his claims, so it has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Musk is older than Zuckerberg at 51 to Zuck’s 39. However, he has an advantage in height and weight as he stands at 6’1 and 85kg, with Zuckerberg at 5’8 and 70kg.
Why Musk would beat Zuckerberg
The obvious reason why Musk would win a fight between the two is his height and weight advantage. Regardless of Zuckerberg’s fighting experience, if Musk can grab hold of him, then even superior technique could make it hard to escape.
Why Zuckerberg would beat Musk
Obviously, Zuckerberg is younger, more experienced, and in better shape. These factors do even the odds somewhat as if Zuckerberg can keep his distance and wait for Musk to tire, he has the skills to take him apart. Whatever the outcome, it should be an interesting fight.
