Jiu Jitsu fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg canceled by Maye Musk.
Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ: META) co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk agreed to have a physical fight, which was described as the biggest Jiu-Jitsu fight of the century. The fight was supposedly triggered by Mario Nawfal, CEO of Web3 incubator platform IBC Group, after highlighting the competitive nature between Twitter and Meta in the social media industry. However, Maye Musk, Elon Musk’s mother, canceled the fight before it even happened. Maye emphasized the fight was canceled through Twitter as more people cheered on either side. In a video podcast, Musk joked about how his body mass could help him win the fight even though Zuckerberg could have the skills in Jiu Jitsu. Musk replied with an emoji of face and tears of joy, which prompted mixed reactions from followers. The cage fight that was to be undertaken through a UFC style between Musk and Zuckerberg would use Joe Rogan as a potential referee. UFC President Dana White had confirmed that he had spoken to both Elon and Zuckerberg and indicated that they are serious. However, Maye insisted that the two should fight in words only or through an armchair.
