Mark Zuckerberg is moving on from the idea of fighting fellow billionaire Elon Musk — at least for now.
Zuckerberg Sunday reveal on topics — part of the Meta Social media catalog — that he’s no longer trying to book a fight with Twitter’s owner until Musk starts taking things more seriously.
Zuckerberg stated “I think we all agree that Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on.” “I offered a real date. Dana White offered to make this a legit contest for charity. Elon wouldn’t confirm a date, then say he needed surgery, and now ask to do a training run in my backyard instead.
“If Elon is serious about a real date and an official event, he knows how to get to me. Otherwise, it’s time to move on. I’ll focus on competing with people who take sports seriously.”
Musk made waves earlier this week when he said a fight with Zuckerberg would happen, but the UFC would have no involvement from a management perspective — a sentiment Zuckerberg wasn’t interested in. From there, the idea of putting the billionaires’ fight together has loosened.
White has been a big advocate of the fight, and believes it will bring in about $1 billion in revenue.
