Mark Zuckerberg Training Ahead Of His Rumored Cage Fight With Elon Musk Along with UFC Icon Israel Adesanya.


Mark Zuckerberg, the Chief Executive Officer of Meta, is currently training ahead of his proposed cage fight with Twitter CEO Elon Musk. Looking at his recent  Instagram post, which showed him posing with UFC champion Israel Adesanya, Zuckerberg appeared ready for a cage match.


Adesanya wrote in the caption, "No Fugazi with Mark, This is serious business."


Replying to the post, Mark commented, "It was an honor to train with you guys!




The 39-year-old billionaire looks stronger compared to 2010 when he went viral for his trembling sweaty interview at the D8 All Things Digital conference, where he was asked about his company's privacy policies.


The recent update on Mark Zuckerberg's physique comes a few weeks after a viral argument on Twitter and Instagram last month where Musk proposed a cage fight between himself and Zuckerberg.


It all started when Musk, the CEO of Twitter, responded to a tweet about Meta reportedly preparing to release a new Twitter rival app called "Threads." Musk took a dig at the world becoming "solely under Zuckerberg's thumb with no other alternatives.


Elon Musk posted on his Twitter social media that he was "up for a cage fight" with Mr Zuckerberg. Musk wrote, "I'm up for a cage match if he is, lol," However, one Twitter user jokingly warned Musk of Zuckerberg's jiu-jitsu training.


"You have a slim chance to beat him without training or being fully conditioned. Mark will perform his jiu-jitsu submission easily. He's been training for a while and is good at it. I'm concerned, please reconsider."


Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, the parent platform for Instagram and Facebook, soon responded and appeared to agree to Musk's proposal.


Zuckerberg wrote on his Instagram story, "Send me location, showing a screenshot of Musk's tweet where another user's response urged the Twitter owner to "start training."


The trend has gone viral, with social media users debating who would win the contest while others posted memes, including mocked-uppers advertising the fight.

The Fight Was a Metaphor 

Walter Isaacson,  who is Musk's biography, later claimed on a Twitter Spaces session that he doubted a fight would happen and that it was "a metaphor" the banter was related to the competition between the CEOs' rivaling social media sites Twitter and Thread.


Instagram's Threads platform, a blunt competitor to the Twitter platform, was launched on July 5  and racked up its first 100 million users on July 10. 


On the same day the Twitter threatened platform was launched, Musk called Zuckerberg a "cuck" over Twitter and threatened to sue Meta for allegedly misusing Twitter's trade secrets and other intellectual property." And employing former Twitter staffers to help with developing Threads Application, labeling it as a "copycat" app of Twitter.
