Elon Musk‘s rumored fight with longtime billionaire nemesis Mark Zuckerberg appears to have taken one big step forward on Friday.

The two have bickered back and forth ever since Musk’s massive acquisition of Twitter late in 2022.

The sparring, which was mostly online and occasionally in the media, led to Musk proposing a fight between the two.

Zuckerberg, who has notably been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, quickly accepted. But that seems to be where talks have stalled.

Former UFC fighter Matt Brown says that fans should just let the fight die.

“They’re not going to f—– fight,” Brown said on the new episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer.

These motherf——- ain’t going to fight. What are you talking about? Everybody talks that s—. We’re talking about them right now. Twitter’s talking about them. Everybody’s forgetting about all the f—— garbage bulls— that they’ve done in their lives. I don’t even know what they’ve done, but I know they’ve got a lot of haters. Like [Elon says] ‘why don’t you quit talking s*** about me buying Twitter cause I’m going to go cage fight’ and everybody is like OK, no problem, bro! That’s how these motherf—— operate.

“It’s a P.R. f—– scandal. I’m asking the MMA community to be more intelligent than this. Can we see through this?”

But that hasn’t stopped UFC president Dana White from trying to make it happen. White even went so far as to suggest the fight could happen in The Colosseum in Rome.

Now it appears White may just onto something.

Gennaro Sangiuliano

Musk tweeted out details of the proposed fight in the early hours of Friday morning. He stated that the fight will be managed by his and Zuckerberg’s foundations, not by the UFC.

He noted that the fight will be streamed on both Twitter (X, if you will) and Meta, and everything in the frame will be ancient Rome.

Musk claims he spoke to both Italy’s prime minister Giorgia Meloni and minister of culture, Gennaro Sangiuliano.

But wait, there’s more!

Musk also says he was medically cleared to fight. But it will take some time to recover from a rib injury first.

Some call it stalling. Others call it promotion. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
