Ahead of his rumored fight with the world’s second richest man, Elon Musk, Facebook and Instagram boss, Mark Zuckerberg, has been spotted training with UFC middleweight and featherweight champions, Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski.
The rumored fight has been flying online ever since Tesla and Twitter owner Musk called out Zuckerberg over his launch of a competing brand to Twitter ‘Thread’ which has already clocked over 100 million users since its launch on July 6.
Musk has suggested that he and Zuckerberg have “a literal dick-measuring contest” a sentence Zuckerberg seems to have taken seriously. The Meta boss is an active combat lover and recently won two medals at a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament earlier this year. Musk also has a combat background having had training in judo, Kyokushin karate, and taekwondo as a kid.
According to TMZ per TalkSport, “Adesanya and Volkanovski flew to Zuckerberg’s home in northern California after UFC 290 in Las Vegas on Saturday night before getting to work with the Meta head on the mats.”
A picture posted by Adesanya on Instagram shows the Meta boss competing with both active UFC fighters in the ripped department.
Adesanya wrote, “No Fugazi with Mark. This is Serious Business.” Zuckerberg commented, “It’s an honor to train with you guys.”
