Elon Musk has been vocal about a hypothetical bout with Mark Zuckerberg. Musk, who appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, reiterated his challenge to the Meta CEO, stating he’s ready for a match “anytime, anywhere, any rule.”
Musk addressed accusations of not being earnest about the fight by affirming his willingness to engage in a bout under any conditions.
“He accused me of not being serious, and I said, ‘Listen, at the end of the day, I’ll fight you any place, anywhere, under any rules,’” Musk told Rogan. “That’s what I said.
“He said name the place. I’m happy to fight him in a house, on a mouse, with a louse we’d like, go full Doctor Seuss here. I’m a way bigger than him. This is unfair. I don’t think he should fight me.”
Zuckerberg, an avid jiu-jitsu enthusiast, previously dismissed the idea of a fight with Musk, citing doubts about Musk’s seriousness. Musk revealed a text conversation purportedly with Zuckerberg about a practice match at Zuckerberg’s residence, which includes a full-size fighting octagon. Despite admitting to minimal training, Musk expressed confidence that his size advantage and unique ‘walrus move’ would suffice.
The proposed fight seemed destined for Rome’s historic Coliseum until Zuckerberg withdrew. Musk envisioned the event as respectful to the venue’s heritage, free from excessive commercial branding. Unfortunately, the much-anticipated showdown was not to be, as Zuckerberg decided against it.
