Mark Zuckerberg is ready to move on from his impending battle with Elon Musk.
The Meta CEO went to Threads and then his Instagram Story to share a comment that he doesn’t believe Musk is taking the fight seriously.
“I think we can all agree that Elon isn’t serious, and it’s time to move on,” Zuckerberg wrote. “I offered a real date. Dana White volunteered to make it a legitimate contest for charity. Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery and now asks to do a practice run in my backyard instead.”
He continued, “If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and an official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise time to move on. I’m going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously.”
The statement from Facebook’s founder comes two days later Musk took to Twitter to share that the fight would be managed by his and Zuckerberg’s foundations, rather than UFC, which Zuckerberg wasn’t exactly supportive of. Meta’s CEO commented, “When I’m competing, I want to do it in a way that puts the spotlight on the elite athletes at the top of the game. You do that by working with professional organizations like the UFC or ONE to get this right and make a great card.”
Musk tweeted that the fight would be streamed live on Twitter and Meta
“Everything in camera frame will be ancient Rome so nothing modern at all,” he tweeted. “I have spoken with the Prime Minister of Italy and the Minister of Culture. They agreed on an epic location.” Following Musk’s Twitter post, Italy’s culture minister explained that he had spoken to Tesla’s CEO and had a “long, friendly” conversation about hosting the fight, but shared that the fight would not be held in Rome. held.
