Elon Musk was leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for a historic fight against Mark Zuckerberg but it turns out that he might need much more time to actually be up for it. The Tesla CEO, who has been rumored to have a tech mogul battle against Meta CEO Zuckerberg, was training with some of the big names recently. He trained with UFC Hall of Famer Georges St. Pierre, MMA instructor John Danaher, and podcaster Lex Fridman.
A former two-division champion in the UFC, GSP posted on Twitter with his training partners. He captioned the picture, “Great training session with 3 men that I really admire. Combined IQ in this photo is 1000. « Not including me » [laughing emojis]”
Fridman, who is a research scientist at MIT, also posted about the training on Twitter. He captioned the post, “Had a great training session with @elonmusk, @GeorgesStPierre, and John Danaher last night. Everything about this was epic!”
Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training.

To this post, Elon replied, “Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training.”
The feud between Musk and Zuckerberg began when it was reported that Instagram was working on a competitor for Twitter. Musk acquired the social media platform, Twitter, in late 2022. The Tesla CEO challenged Zuckerberg for a cage fight and the battle was agreed.
UFC president Dana White said both men were dead serious about the fight. However, Musk seems to be unprepared for it after making such comments.
Elon Musk could face Mark Zuckerberg at the most extraordinary battle theater ever built
Reports have suggested an enormous breakthrough for the much-awaited Musk vs Zuckerberg fight. TMZ Sports reported that an official of Italy’s Ministry of Culture contacted Zuckerberg a few days ago. The Italian minister plans to host the big fight in Rome’s Colosseum.
TMZ Sports further reported that Zuckerberg’s representatives have forwarded the message to Dana White, who is apparently arranging the bout.

The Colosseum has not hosted big events in years. On the other hand, with its temporary seating, it would be difficult to allocate a huge crowd. It is highly unlikely that the fight does take place in one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The competitors have agreed to have a cage fight. It is likely that the fight occurs in a UFC Octagon. Reports suggest that the Vegas Octagon is the likeliest venue for the showdown.
