We’ve been keeping an eye on the possible showdown between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg with peak curiosity!
As you may have heard during a Celebrity Dirt discussion, our pick for the winners circle is clear: Zuck. We know he has an age advantage (at 39, he is 12 years the junior to 51-year-old Musk) and, we believe, Zuckerberg also has the benefit of more extensive training. But, what do we know? Our idea of a fight includes the double-middle finger, a few colorful profanity combinations most normal people would never think of and perhaps a giant flip-flop being frisbeed at your head from across the room! As different as you may be after a Dave-sized sandal ricochets off your dome, the fact remains: we know nothing about fighting!
Enter the professionals. Some real MMA fighters have commented on the possibility of these two leaders of the tech world meeting in the octagon!
If you ask UFC welterweight fighter Colby Covington, he’s putting his money on the 51-year-old Elon Musk to come out on top, saying, “Mark Zuckerberg, he brings beta soy boy energy. Elon Musk, he brings alpha energy — he’s a man of the people. He’s looking to restore free speech … I don’t think Zuckerberg will actually get in the octagon with him. And if he did … he’ll never be the same person again.”
On the other hand, three-time Bellator lightweight champ Michael Chandler is confident that Zuck will f— Elon up! He says, “Zuckerberg has been training … Elon is the bigger guy, but Elon is the older guy. It all depends on who can actually show up on fight night and put those skills to the test. Zuckerberg has a lot more skills … [and] is actually in there mixing it up with world-class fighters.”
All we really know for sure is if these two billionaires beat the crap out of each other, no mayyer whose arms are raised at the end, we all are the real winners!
