After months of enormous hype on the internet with millions of tweets and videos, the time has finally come. The MMA fight between billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg is upon us. And as far as we know, it’s going to be an epic fight.
Musk announces epic MMA fight
Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX owner Elon Musk made the announcement on his Twitter/X account. The date of the fight is not yet known, but it is said that much has already been agreed. The cage fight between the sworn rivals will take place in Italy. Instead of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the organizations Zuckerberg and Musk will take over the organization.
Musk announced in the tweet that he had already spoken to the Italian Prime Minister about the possible locations. And in their own words, they were able to settle for a pretty nice specimen. It has already been suggested on the Internet that the fight should be performed in a Romanesque style. As a location, the Colosseum received the most support. That Musk spoke to the Italian Prime Minister seems to indicate that this location will soon become a reality.
The fight will be managed by mine and Zuck’s foundation (not UFC).
The live stream will take place on this platform and meta. Everything in the camera image will be ancient Rome, so nothing modern at all.
I spoke to the Italian Prime Minister and Minister of Culture. They agreed on an epic place.

The call to fight has been going on for weeks, which is also reflected in their messages. Zuckerberg posted three months ago already a post on Instagram in which he shows a Jiu-Jitsu victory. In the following weeks, the Facebook CEO published many more training photos and videos. Below falls an Instagram post featuring MMA world champions Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski.
Team Musk versus Team Zuck
Musk can therefore expect a lot of competition from Team Zuck. But the Tesla boss himself was also able to organize some impressive coaches. ‘Team Muskconsists of Musk himself, top trainer John Danaher and multiple world champion Georges St-Pierre. Due to the fighting styles of both teams, it will be a cage fight with a lot of jiu jitsu.
Of course, it could be one big publicity stunt. However, the gigantic preparatory work and the trained bodies of both suggest otherwise. According to Musk, the fight will be streamed on X (Twitter) and Meta (Facebook). The profits go to hospitals in Italy and to veterans.
