Fans are keeping their fingers crossed as the Twitter boss will face the Facebook head in a fight. Elon Musk has a diverse range of interests. He is the pioneer of electric Tesla cars and PayPal. He is the founder of SpaceX and aims to settle people on Mars. Also, his Neuralink wants to connect a chip to people’s brains that shall make them sharper as the threat of ‘intelligent machines’ looms. Elon Musk has, of course, diverse engineering interests compared to Zuckerberg, but who among the tech billionaires will have an edge in the UFC match? Former tennis star Andy Roddick shared his views on the same on Twitter.

How did it all start? Last Tuesday, Elon Musk took a dig at Zuckerberg on reports that Zuckerberg plans to launch a Twitter rival, Threads. Musk wrote, “I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options. At least it will be ‘sane.Was worried there for a moment.” Responding to that, a user commented, “Better be careful @elonmusk I heard he does the jiu-jitsu now”.

The user referred to the recent Zuckerberg triumphs in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu contest in a Silicon Valley school where he won a gold and a silver medal, recently. Responding to that, Elon Musk wrote, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”
