Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have declared their readiness for a cage match.

It appears that two of the most influential billionaires in the technology industry’s rivalry extends beyond the business world. Now both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are calling for a cage match to settle the score.

Musk, owner of Twitter and CEO of Tesla (TSLA), recently stated that he would be “up for a cage fight” with Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg responded to Musk’s statement on Instagram on Wednesday, tweeting a screenshot of it with the caption “Send Me Location.”

After tech journalist and Verge editor Alex Heath tweeted about the battle, Musk replied, “Vegas Octagon,” a reference to the Las Vegas venue where the Ultimate Fighting Championship takes place.

“I have this amazing technique I like to call ‘The Walrus,’ in which I simply lie on top of my opponent and do nothing,” he said in a subsequent tweet.

Meta has been approached for a response. A firm representative stated to Verge, “The [Instagram] story speaks for itself.”

Whether or if Zuckerberg and Musk are being serious or joking around is still up in the air.

Who would come out on top in a cage match is anyone’s guess. Even though Musk towers over Zuckerberg in stature, the Meta CEO is a two-time medalist in jiu-jitsu, a Brazilian martial technique.

Based on odds compiled from multiple bookies like as Bovada, Bet Online, and Ladbrokes, the sports betting website Oddspedia has determined that Zuckerberg has an 83% chance of winning the bout.

Paddy Power, a betting company, says both men have an equal chance of winning the match if it ever takes place.

A representative for the Irish firm said in a statement, “If this fight does actually go ahead, with a bit of luck, they’ll both knock some sense into each other.”

In the past, they have

Before Musk became the wealthiest person in the planet, he and Buffett tussled for position atop Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index.

In 2017, they had a very public disagreement regarding AI’s potential.

Musk had previously expressed concern that AI posed an existential threat to humanity. However, Zuckerberg saw things in a far brighter light.

In an on-the-spot Facebook Live broadcast, he called the “naysayers” who imagined “doomsday scenarios” “pretty irresponsible.”

Shortly after, Musk responded on Twitter, saying, “I’ve talked to Mark about this.” He has a very shallow comprehension of the topic at hand.

In 2020, Musk displaced Zuckerberg from third place on Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index and soon after surpassed Gates as the world’s wealthiest individual.

In December, he was temporarily dethroned by Bernard Arnault, head of French luxury goods behemoth LVMH (LVMHF), but he regained his position as CEO in May. Zuckerberg has moved up the ranks and is currently tenth.
