Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg: Everything you need to know about the fight

Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg

Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are edging closer to a potential face-off in a physical fight. What initially began as an internet jest has now evolved into an actual event, as Musk recently revealed that the fight will be broadcasted live on X, previously known as Twitter.

All proceeds generated will be donated to a charity benefiting veterans, as mentioned by Musk through his X account.

With the rise of celebrity fights popularized by internet celebrities like Logan and Jake Paul, watching two tech billionaires settle their differences with their fists is not at all surprising in 2023. How did we get here?

Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg fight plans date back to June 2023

The idea for a fight between Musk and Zuckerberg dates back to June 2023, with Meta’s plans to launch a rival to X called Threads. Musk poked fun at the announcement, saying Earth “can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options.”

When a Twitter user joked that Musk needs to be careful now since Zuckerberg trains in jiu-jitsu, Musk tweeted, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”

Zuckerberg, who competed in his first jiu-jitsu event in May 2023, made it clear that he wants to fight Musk in a cage match, posting a screenshot of the X owner’s tweet on his Instagram story, urging Musk to send him the location.
