Social media is buzzing with a potential battle of the billionaires between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, with Musk’s Chinese stand-in comedian Yilong Ma now releasing clips showing him taking on a fake Zuckerberg.
The world’s richest tech titans vowed to take him down in a cage fight last month in what would be a clash for eternity.
The fight was even endorsed by UFC President Dana White, who claimed that it would be the greatest fight of all time.
But now, Yilong Ma, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Musk, has released a series of clips in which he plays fight against a version of Zuckerberg, played by a man carrying a box on his head, also known as Zuckerbox.
Elon Musk’s Chinese doppelganger, comedian Yilong Ma, has released TikTok videos showing a fictional fight with a fake Mark Zuckerberg.
The anticipated showdown between the two billionaire tech moguls in a cage fight has sparked buzz on social media with videos of Ma adding a fun twist.
The clips show Ma fighting a Zuckerberg-like character, played by an individual who wears a box on his head, known as a ‘Zuckerbox’.
Ma’s clips have amassed millions of views on social media.
The clips show various scenarios between Musk and Zuckerberg, whose on-off rivalry has been bubbling under the surface for a long time.
Meta’s new app, Threads, prompted the Tesla titan to sue Zuckerberg and sparked a series of malicious trolls on Twitter last week.
Zuckerberg has ignored the provocations, but he hasn’t always stayed out of the fray.
Two weeks ago, before the release of Threads, he offered, perhaps jokingly, to meet Musk for a bare-knuckle cage fight, but the idea seems to have captured the fancy of those online.

In what became a viral back and forth, Musk tweeted on June 20 bragging that he was “ready for a cage match if so,” to which the Meta boss replied on Instagram “send me the location.”
In the TikTok videos, wearing sports shorts and boxing gloves, Ma describes how his American namesake could take down his rival on social media.
He punches Zuckerbox and even manages to hold him off, showing off his boxing skills.
Instead of taking on Musk’s like the proposed grand venue for the ‘Vegas Octagon’, Ma’s battles take place on a patch of grass.
In one of the clips, Ma passionately shouts: ‘Defy Zuckerberg! Wow!’ with him appearing victorious in every round.
So far, TikTok’s fight videos have garnered nine million views.

Threads has been dubbed the ‘Twitter Killer’ online amid animosity between the rival billionaires who recently agreed to meet in a cage fight. In the photo: Musk during sumo wrestling training.
Although a head-to-head cage fight actually still seems far-fetched, both the Meta founder and Twitter boss have received offers from various UFC stars to help them train.
Earlier this month, the 39-year-old Facebook founder posed for photos with UFC featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski and two-time UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya at a gym in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. .
Musk, 52, has received similar offers from other high-profile mixed martial artists including Jorge Masvidal, Dominick Cruz and Georges St-Pierre.
Supporters applauded Musk for taking his training seriously, despite the fact that there was no official agreement with Zuckerberg over the proposed cage match which, it is claimed, could generate 25 million pay-per-view buys.
Musk has admitted that he needs “a lot more training” after some grueling sessions with St. Pierre, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in MMA history.
