Elon Musk’s Fight With Mark Zuckerberg to Be Live-Streamed on X
Elon Musk’s fight with Mark Zuckerberg will be live-streamed on the social media platform X (former Twitter).
Musk first shared a post saying he was up for a cage match with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is trained in jiu-jitsu, on June 20.
On Sunday, August 6, entrepreneur Elon Musk shared that the fight he proposed to Mark Zuckerberg will be live-streamed on the social media platform X (formerly named Twitter).
As shared by Musk on his X profile, all proceeds will go to charity for veterans.
Musk is the CEO of Tesla, Space X, and the owner of X (former Twitter). On June 20, he shared a post saying he was up for a cage match with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is trained in jiu-jitsu. Mark Zuckerberg replied to Musk on Instagram, one of Meta’s platforms, asking him to send the location of the proposed fight.
“Vegas Octagon,” replied Musk. He also said, “If this is for real, I will do it.” Following this, the entrepreneur shared posts about the fight’s “preparation” with his 151.9 million followers, saying: “I am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight. Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work.”
In addition, on August 4, Musk posted a live video testing X’s new feature, in which he lifts a 45-lb dumbbell. So, when the fight was announced, an X user asked Musk if the reason behind the proposed fight was to be motivated to work out.
“It’s a civilized form of war. Men love war,”replied the entrepreneur.
Notably, individuals can bet on who wins the battle. At the time of writing, a “Mus.” bet costs 46 cents, while a “Zuc.” bet goes for 55 cents. Users can trade Musk and Zuckerberg by purchasing shares.
The bet expires on August 31. In case the fight is withdrawn, canceled, or comes to an end without a definitive winner, the market will resolve it 50-50. If Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg do not schedule a fight until August 31, the battle will also be considered 50-50. In a case where it is scheduled for a date after August 31, the timeframe of the market will be extended until the fight’s date. If the confirmed date is postponed for more than sixty days, the market will also resolve 50-50.
Update: According to Bloomberg, Elon Musk said that he will get an MRI on his back and neck and may need surgery after a sumo match.
