With this Elon Musk/Mark Zuckerberg cage match reportedly actually going to happen, some MMA fighters have begun debating who they think will win.
UFC welterweight fighter Colby Covington puts his money on Musk, 51, over Zuckerberg, 39, because, “Mark Zuckerberg, he brings beta soy boy energy. Elon Musk, he brings alpha energy — he’s a man of the people. He’s looking to restore free speech … I don’t think Zuckerberg will actually get in the octagon with him. And if he did … he’ll never be the same person again.”
Meanwhile, three-time Bellator lightweight champ Michael Chandler is betting on Zuckerberg, who is trained in jujitsu, saying, “Zuckerberg has been training … Elon is the bigger guy, but Elon is the older guy. It all depends on who can actually show up on fight night and put those skills to the test. Zuckerberg has a lot more skills … [and] is actually in there mixing it up with world-class fighters.”
Do you think this Musk/Zuckerberg fight would really happen? If so, who do you think would win?
