The UFC CEO has stated that Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk are fully committed to engaging in a cage match against each other.
The two tech moguls utilized their respective social media platforms, Instagram and Twitter, to build anticipation for their hypothetical showdown. Furthermore, both individuals have reportedly spoken with Dana White, the head of UFC.
During an interview, the UFC promoter revealed that a Zuckerberg versus Musk fight would surpass the revenue and viewership generated by the highly-publicized boxing event in 2017 between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, which was watched by 50 million people in the United States alone.
White stated, “The potential earnings from this event are limitless,” and shared that he had conversed with the duo just the previous evening, emphasizing their sincere interest in the matter.
