What? An Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg fight? Is it a gimmick? UFC President Dana White says NO.

If you haven’t heard, two of the richest men in the world, feel, being the richest men in the world doesn’t bring enough attention. So reportedly, billionaire Elon Musk has agreed to a cage match with another billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg.

Musk, on Twitter was the first to reach out to Zuckerberg, challenging him to a the cage match. Zuckerberg agreed.

UFC stands for Ultimate Fighting Championship. It is a mixed martial arts promotion company based in, of course Las Vegas. UFC promotes, MMA, which stands for mixed martial arts. It’s been around for about 30 years, and to give you an idea of how big it is, it was bought in 2016 for about $4 BILLION dollars.

What Started The “Beef”

According to

This entire idea might sound like a worrying fever dream, but it is in fact real — and the Musk versus Zuckerberg faceoff has somewhat of a history. What set the stage for their “beef” was a SpaceX rocket carrying a Facebook-owned satellite in 2016. The launch failed, and the satellite — which the company now known as Meta had been planning to use to provide internet service in parts of Africa — was destroyed.

Things have been arguably a little frosty since then. Musk is on record saying social media apps like Instagram negatively impact mental health. In recent months, Musk has said that one of his goals with Twitter is to maximize “unregretted user time” — perhaps a swipe at Meta.

I don’t think this will really happen, using humans. Maybe they will attempt this event using AI versions of the rich guys. But these headlines, as dumb as they are, make for a great distraction from the real news these days.
