Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg Match Soon? | Inquirer Technology

Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg fight coming soon?

12:47 PM June 23, 2023

Your eyes are not deceiving you, nor did I put a mere clickbait title. Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg exchanged a few words challenging each other to a fight. Surprisingly, the Facebook founder confirmed he would fight the Chief Twit! As a result, we might see these billionaires throw hands on the ring or the octagon.

If you think this fight won’t happen, look back to the unlikely bouts we’ve seen over the years. For example, online content creators KSI and Logan Paul duke it out in the ring. Also, Twitch streamers like Ludwig and CDawgVA had silly chess boxing and slap-fighting matches.

Who’s to say a clash between the two social media titans is impossible? This article will discuss how the beef between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg started. Also, I will compare their physical performance so readers can see who would possibly win.


How did Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg start?


According to Mashable, this proposed fight started when the SpaceX CEO replied to a user who tweeted about Meta’s Twitter competitor called Threads. Musk tweeted on June 21, “I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options.”

“At least it will be ‘sane.” [I] Was worried there for a moment,” he added. Then, another Twitter user teased him about being careful with Zuckerberg’s jiu-jitsu training.

In response, the Tesla head remarked, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.” Musk probably only joked about this statement, but the Facebook founder seemed to take it seriously.

He posted a screenshot of Musk’s “cage match” tweet in an Instagram Story with the caption, “Send Me Location.” Later, The Verge reported about their exchange, and Musk tweeted, “Vegas Octagon.”

Mashable wondered whether we would witness these tech titans battle. Twitter users thought the same thing, so Musk replied, “The most entertaining outcome is the most likely.”

The Verge says the Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg drama has been brewing since reporting about Meta’s Twitter competitor. On June 21, 2023, Musk taunted Zuckerberg on Twitter with statements like “Zuck my (tongue emoji).”


During last week’s Meta meeting, chief product officer Chris Cox told employees the company believes creators want a “sanely run” Twitter. In response, the workers cheered.

On June 10, 2023, Zuckerberg shared choice words about his competitor platform during a podcast interview with Lex Fridman. “I’ve always thought that Twitter should have a billion people using it.”

Let’s say this fight has a specific date and venue. Who would win? Choose your fighter as I discuss their physical capabilities and fighting experience.

Elon Musk boasted a “great move” to overpower the Meta Platforms leader. On June 22, 2023, he tweeted, “I have this great move that I call “The Walrus,” where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing.”

The Austin American-Stateman says he is 6.1 ft, 180 lbs, and Zuckerberg is 5.7 ft, 154 lbs. Consequently, the Tesla contender has a physical advantage.

That might be the secret behind his “Walrus” special move. The South China Morning Post shared an interview with his father, Errol Musk, which may share more details about his physique.

On August 6, 2022, Errol Musk commented on pictures of his son topless while on a boat in Greece. The father said, “Elon is strongly built, but he’s been eating badly.” Then, he suggested his 51-year-old son should take diet pills.

On the other hand, the 39-year-old Zuckerberg has been steadily training his body for many years. According to The Verge, Zuck claimed he’s been in “real hardcore street fights.”

The Facebook founder has been winning jiu-jitsu tournaments and claims to complete the infamous “Murph Challenge” workout in under 40 minutes.

Do you want another proof that an Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg bout may happen soon? UFC president Dana White told TMZ, “Both guys are absolutely dead serious,” according to USA Today.

“Mark Zuckerberg hit me up first and said, ‘Is [Elon] serious? And I said, ‘I don’t know, let me ask him.’ I asked him, and he said, ‘Yeah, I’m dead serious.”
