Mark Zuckerberg points out Elon Musk isn’t serious about cage match and calls it off

In the midst of having all the anticipation, it looks like this fight won’t really happen.

Mark Zuckerberg has called it quits and had lost hope if his cage match with Elon Musk would still go on.


Post by @zuck View on Threads


“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on,” Zuckerberg wrote via his Threads account. “I offered a real date. Dana White offered to make this a legit competition for charity. Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead.”

The Meta, Inc. executive then went on that if ever Musk goes serious with the fight, the latter knows how to approach him. If the fight somehow didn’t come to fruition, the former would instead compete with people that take mixed martial arts seriously.

The potential cage match between the two tech moguls has been the talk of the digital space when they are exchanging challenging messages. It was on June 20 when the X (formerly Twitter) executive wrote, ‘I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.’

It can be recalled that Musk recently announced that his potential fight with Zuckerberg would be live-streamed on his own platform – then added that proceeds will go into charity. But the latter fired back and asked via Threads if ‘shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?’
