Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington is known for making headlines for his loudmouthing. This time around the fighter shared his prediction for the much anticipated cage match between billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.
While the fight between Musk and Zuckerberg is not officially confirmed, Covington has already picked Tesla CEO Elon Musk as his favorite for the fight. The welterweight fighter thinks that Musk exhibits alpha energy and will absolutely destroy Zuckerberg in a cage match.
In an interview with Fox News via Skype, Colby spoke in his own style about the ongoing feud. “It wouldn’t even be competitive. Mark Zuckerberg, he brings beta soy boy energy. Elon Musk, he brings alpha energy.” – said Covington

He further said that the Facebook CEO does not even stand a chance and the match will not even be competitive. According to him, Musk is a man of the people and walks his talk. “He’s looking to restore free speech, he’s looking to fight the corruption and collusion at the highest levels of government,” – added the UFC fighter
The banter on social media between the two tech-entrepreneurs turned very exciting for the fans when the SpaceX boss asked Zuckerberg for a cage match. The latter replied in a savage way, “send me location”.
It all started when the Meta CEO launched Threads, an app which is a competition for Musk’s Twitter.

Belal Muhammad did not miss this opportunity to call out his fierce rival for this funny mistake. Speaking about this incident, Muhammad called Colby, ‘a strong case for brain damage’.
Before the end of this year, we may see Belal Muhammad challenging the UFC welterweight champion for the title. However, that will happen after the title fight between Colby Covington and reigning welterweight champion Leon Edwards.
We will have to wait to see who turns out to be the champion of the first fight. Whoever that is, Belal Muhammad will be eyeing the belt this time.
