Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg. Twitter vs Meta. Billionaire vs Billionaire. What better way to settle the social media debate than to throw them both in a cage?
Incase you haven't heard, Musk and Zuckerberg have been throwing virtual punches at each other on social media and the pair concluded that the only way to settle things is with a mixed martial arts cage fight.
As you do.
Musk tweeted back 'Vegas Octagon'.
The Twitter boss then joked that he had a 'great move' to show off to the Meta founder and noted that his workout regime consists of spending time with this children.
“I have this great move that I call 'The Walrus', where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing,” he tweeted.
Musk worryingly added: “I almost never work out, except for picking up my kids & throwing them in the air.”
On the other hand, Zuckerberg would appear to be in good shape for the challenge after winning his first jiu-jitsu competition recently.
So it seems that the Tesla boss has got some work to do.
"I haven't started training yet. So if this does happen, I will," Musk admitted in an exchange on Twitter with Ashlee Vance, the author of a book on Musk and the space race.
UFC president Dana White has also come out and said that the two are 'dead serious' about taking each other on.
White said: "Both guys are absolutely dead serious about this. They both want to do it. Mark Zuckerberg hit me up first and said, 'Is he serious?'
"And I said, 'I don't know, let me ask him,' and I asked him and he said, ''yeah, I'm dead serious'. It would break all pay-per-view records.
"These guys would raise, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars for charity and, you know, you don't have to be a big fight fan to be interested in this fight.
"Everybody would want to see it."
If the fight does go ahead, it's likely to make millions, or evens billions.
However, since money isn't really a motivation for either, you best believe that these guys will genuinely try to beat the s*** out of each other.
That is something that we are all for.
