Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, was spotted on Tuesday working out with UFC champions Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski.
The image of his training session with the UFC champions has fueled more rumours that he and Twitter CEO Elon Musk could engage in mixed martial arts combat.
MDB had reported that a few weeks ago, online teasing began about the possibility of an MMA match between the two tech experts.
However, since Zuckerberg unveiled his Twitter-like service called Threads, animosity between the two has increased.
Threads launched on July 5, 2023, and has since gathered more than 100 million users worldwide.
However, Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO believes Threads was only made possible by “cheating.”
Musk stated this while responding to a tweet reporting that Twitter was threatening to sue Facebook and Instagram’s parent company Meta for cheating with its new app Threads on Friday, July 7, 2023.
Musk tweeted, “Competition is fine, cheating is not.”
The two tech titans have once again re-issued their friendly challenge to engage in a cage battle as their online debates about the new app have heated up.
While some may have dismissed the suggestion of an MMA match as fun banter between the two powerful people, the anticipation for this unexpected confrontation grew as both of them were photographed working out with MMA fighters.
Meanwhile, Zuckerberg while reacting to his picture with the UFC champions – Adesanya and Volkanovski wrote, “It’s an honour to train with you guys!”
Responding, “The Last Stylebender’ who posted photos of the training session, wrote, “No fugazi with Mark. This is Serious Business.”
Also, Volkanovski, the UFC featherweight kingpin responded, “@zuck you’re a beast! Always great to catch up.”
Musk also looks to be in a training session already as he was also spotted with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre on Tuesday, July 3, 2023.
