Now that the proposed cage fight between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk isn’t going to happen, Musk says he’ll show up unannounced at Zuckerberg’s house to fight.
“For the Tesla FSD test drive in Palo Alto tonight I’m asking the car to drive to @finkd’s house,” Musk aware today on X, or the service formerly called Twitter. “If we’re lucky and Zuck my 👅 really opens the door, the fight is on!”
It turns out that Zuckerberg has none of it.
“Mark is away on a trip right now and he’s not in Palo Alto,” says a spokesman for Zuckerberg in Meta, Iska Saric. the edge. “Also, Mark takes this sport seriously and is not going to fight someone who randomly shows up at his house.”
Zuckerberg recently threw in the towel after weeks of Musk not confirming a date for his cage fight, later suggesting that he might need surgery and that the fight will take place in Rome without the involvement of the UFC. The Italian government was quick to deny that it would take place in Rome, and Zuckerberg, who has been training regularly and competing in jiujitsu tournaments, has insisted that the fight be staged professionally.
“I don’t want to keep promoting something that will never happen, so you should decide you’re going to do this and do it soon, or we should move on,” Zuckerberg recently told Musk in a text message that Musk, naturally, posted online. Musk then proposed a fight today in Zuckerberg’s backyard, taunting him with “maybe you’re a modern day Bruce Lee and somehow you’ll win.”
Musk, of course, had to know that constantly changing the terms of the fight he first proposed would put pressure on Zuckerberg to back out. This was never really about fighting. It’s all about hitting his chest and playing the base of it. Let Musk take an already absurd story and make it even more ridiculous.
