The hyped competition between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk in the tech industry is on hold.
Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, stated on Sunday that he thinks Musk, the owner of X, is not serious about engaging in a mixed martial arts fight with Musk and should let it go, despite the ongoing negative press coverage.
On his new website Threads Sunday, the Facebook founder declared that he thinks Elon is not serious and it’s time to move on.
He declared that he had given a genuine opportunity for the billionaire fight, and UFC president Dana White was open to making the fight genuinely legitimate while also contributing to charity.
According to Zuckerberg’s writing, Elon has asked him to cancel a real date and make an official event.
Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, has repeatedly stated his eagerness to engage in combat.
Elon Musk has been preparing to face off against Zuckerberg, who is also a jujutsu player.
Musk responded to a tweet about the brouhaha by labeling Zuckerberg as ‘a chicken’ on X.
Zuckerberg, aged 39, has previously expressed his belief that he was prepared to face his tech challenger, but Musk, who is 52 years old, declined to provide specific details.
Musk shared a text message between him and Zuckerberg before taking his latest swipe at the social media competitor.
Zuckerberg reportedly used the messages to advise Musk to train independently and inform him when he’s ready to engage in combat.
Elon Musk referred to his tech rival as a “chicken” on Sunday.
Zuckerberg is skeptical that the fight will occur.
Zuckerberg, who is trained in jujitsu, purportedly stated that he didn’t want to continue hype about an event that would never occur and advised Musk to either participate in the cage match or let it go.
Musk replied by texting that he hasn’t been practicing much, but asked about a practice fight in Zuckerberg’s backyard octagon.
In June, Musk, the leader of Tesla and SpaceX, challenged the Facebook founder to a “cage match,” which Zuckerberg readily agreed.
The owner of X had previously stated that the fight would be streamed live on his and Meta’s platform, with the proceeds going towards charity.
He sarcastically mentioned that it would happen in an “impossible place” in Italy.
However, he also shared recently that his shoulder issue may necessitate surgery with a recovery period of “a few months.”
