Now the proposed cage match between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk isn’t going to happen, with Musk saying he’s at Zuckerberg’s house unannounced to fight.
“Having to drive @finkd over to @finkd’s house for a Tesla FSD test drive tonight in Palo Alto,” Musk wrote. Published Today on X, or the service formerly known as Twitter. “If we get lucky and Juk Mai 👅 actually opens the door, the fight will happen!”
Zuckerberg, it turns out, has none of that.
“Mark is traveling now and not in Palo Alto,” Zuckerberg’s spokeswoman Isca Saric told Meta. on the edge. “Also, Mark takes this game seriously and isn’t going to pick a fight with someone who randomly shows up at his house.”
Zuckerberg recently threw in the towel weeks after Musk didn’t confirm a date for their cage match, then suggested he might need surgery and that the fight would take place in Rome without the UFC’s involvement. The Italian government quickly denied that it would take place in Rome, and Zuckerberg, who regularly trains in jiu-jitsu tournaments, was determined to organize the fight professionally.
“I don’t want to advertise something that’s never going to happen, so you’re going to do this, you’re going to do that soon, or we’re going to get on with it,” Zuckerberg recently told Musk in a text message. Published online, naturally. Musk proposed a fight in Zuckerberg’s backyard today, taunting him, saying, “Maybe you’re a modern-day Bruce Lee and somehow win.”
Musk must have known that continuing to change the terms of the fight he originally proposed would pressure Zuckerberg to back down. It’s never about fighting. It’s just playing around with his chest pounding. Take an already ridiculous storyline and leave it to Musk to make it even more ridiculous.
