Insider Insights: Mark Zuckerberg’s Trainer Shares Thoughts on a Possible Musk vs Zuck Showdown
Tesla’s Elon Musk and Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg have been teasing the possibility of a cage fight, and it has become a topic of global fascination. Recently, Zuckerberg’s mixed martial arts trainer, Khai Wu, shed some light on the billionaire’s training and work ethic in the ring. Wu, however, remains uncertain about the outcome of the highly anticipated match, echoing the sentiment shared by many: “I’m as amazed as you are, thinking ‘how crazy is this?'”
Since September of last year, Zuckerberg has been diligently training with Wu, honing his MMA skills and embracing the focus required by the sport. Wu commended Zuckerberg’s dedication and described him as genuinely kind-hearted. Nevertheless, when asked about the potential fight with Musk, Wu refrained from speculating on the victor, leaving room for speculation. The clash between the CEOs of Meta and Tesla may prove to be more unpredictable than anticipated.
The Origin of the Musk vs Zuck Challenge
The challenge was initially thrown by Elon Musk, who publicly called out Zuckerberg to a cage fight. Surprisingly, both billionaires seem open to the idea. During a recent episode of Twitter Spaces, Ashlee Vance of Bloomberg cautioned Musk about underestimating Zuckerberg’s passion for Brazilian martial arts, warning that things “could go badly” for the Tesla CEO.
In response, Musk acknowledged the possibility of defeat and hinted at the fight becoming a reality, stating, “I think it might actually happen.” He further emphasized that if the fight were to take place, he would commence training: “I haven’t started training yet. If it does happen, I will train.”
Previously, Musk humorously claimed that he would defeat Zuckerberg with a single move called “the Walrus,” where he would immobilize him by laying on top. Musk also mentioned his experience with street fights in South Africa.
Meanwhile, Zuckerberg has been sharing his progress in Jiu Jitsu, even winning a tournament in May of this year under the guidance of Wu. Additionally, he has been showcasing his endurance achievements, such as completing the Murph Challenge in under 40 minutes. This involved 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and a 2-mile run.
As the anticipation for the potential Musk vs Zuck clash continues to grow, trainers and experts alike remain intrigued, unsure of how the fight will unfold. Only time will tell if these CEOs will step into the cage and settle their differences in an unprecedented showdown.
