Mark Zuckerberg’s passion for jiu-jitsu has been a topic of discussion, with his latest Instagram post showcasing his training with jiu-jitsu legend Mikey Musumeci. So when Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, challenged Zuckerberg to a ‘cage match’, Zuckerberg confidently responded with a request for Musk to send his location.
The playful banter between Musk and Zuckerberg began when Musk reacted to the news of Meta’s plan to create a Twitter competitor called Threads. Musk expressed his skepticism about having Earth exclusively under Zuckerberg’s control and made a sarcastic comment about Meta’s intention to provide a “sane” platform. In response, a Twitter user warned Musk about Zuckerberg’s jiu-jitsu skills, leading Musk to suggest a ‘cage match’ between the two tech titans.
Zuckerberg took to his Instagram story, asking Musk to send him his location in a lighthearted response to the challenge. Unaware of Zuckerberg’s Instagram post, Musk later discovered it when a Twitter user shared the screenshot, prompting Musk to express his willingness to participate in the ‘cage match’ if it was indeed true.
In another tweet, Musk playfully mentioned his move called ‘The Walrus’, humorously describing how he would lie on top of his opponent and do nothing.
This exchange is not the first time that Musk and Zuckerberg have engaged in banter, as they have previously taken jabs at each other online. Recently, Musk questioned the trustworthiness of WhatsApp, owned by Meta, and referred to Zuckerberg as a ‘copycat’ for planning to launch a rival to Twitter.
