Picture this: Georges St-Pierre, the legendary UFC Hall of Famer, steps into the corner of Elon Musk while Jon Jones leads Mark Zuckerberg into battle. What may seem like an odd fantasy is a possibility, as St-Pierre has thrown his name into the mix for a potential MMA fight between Musk and Zuckerberg.
As an ardent admirer of Musk, St-Pierre enthusiastically expressed his support for the tech titan who kickstarted the idea of a cage match with Zuckerberg following a Twitter competitor proposal from the Meta chief.
The notion gained further traction after Zuckerberg made headlines for his ventures into the world of jiu-jitsu, showcasing impressive skills and even winning medals in his debut tournament appearance.
Joining St-Pierre in the quest to corner the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz volunteered to coach Musk, playfully jesting about smothering the social media entrepreneur with his size advantage in the octagon.
The concept of two billionaires settling their differences inside the confines of the MMA octagon has captured the attention of the world, and UFC President Dana White wasted no time offering to promote the extraordinary event. Zuckerberg's collaboration with the UFC for a Metaverse project, combined with his decision to shut down UFC Vegas 61 so he and his family could spectate the fights at UFC APEX, further fuelled the excitement surrounding the potential face-off.
In response to the growing buzz, Jon Jones declared his allegiance to Team Zuckerberg, extending an offer to serve as his training partner through a tweet that read:
"Let me know if you need a training partner!"
Dana White shared his enthusiasm for the showdown, emphasizing that it would transcend any fight in history, surpassing all pay-per-view records.
"This would be the biggest fight ever in the history of the world, bigger than anything that’s ever been done," White stated in an interview with TMZ.
With the potential for an MMA spectacle featuring two prominent tech moguls, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, alongside legendary fighters like Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones, the world eagerly awaits the realization of this unprecedented clash. As the buzz intensifies, fight fans and curious onlookers alike ponder the outcome of a fight that has the potential to make sporting history.
In the realm where technology meets combat, the octagon could become the stage where these titans of industry settle their differences, leaving spectators in awe and potentially breaking all records in the process.
