Musk Says His Cage Fight with Zuckerberg to Be Streamed on X

Elon Musk says his potential in-person fight with Mark Zuckerberg would be streamed on his social media site X, formerly known as Twitter.

The two tech billionaires reportedly decided to compete in a "cage match" in late June.

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.

“Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X,” Musk wrote in a post Sunday on the platform. “All proceeds will go to charity for veterans.”

On his Threads social media account, Zuckerberg responded: “Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?”

Musk claimed earlier on Sunday that he was weightlifting to prepare for the fight.

“Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work,” Musk wrote.

Zuckerberg replied on Threads: “I’m ready today. I suggested Aug 26 when he first challenged, but he hasn’t confirmed. Not holding my breath. I love this sport and will continue competing with people who train no matter what happens here.”

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.

A Twitter user then humorously forewarned Musk of Zuckerberg's jiu jitsu training after Musk made fun of the world becoming "exclusively under Zuck's thumb with no other options"

“I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,” Musk wrote.
