Mark Zuckerberg accepts Elon Musk’s cage fight: ‘Send me the location’

Mark Zuckerberg is ready for a throwdown.

After Twitter owner Musk, 51, challenged the Facebook founder — who recently won his first amateur Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament — to a “cage match” this week, the 39-year-old said he’s game following months of back-and-forth on social media.

Musk’s offering came after Zuckerberg’s Meta-owned Instagram reported plans to build a text-based social media platform to rival Twitter.

Taking to Instagram Wednesday, Zuckerberg replied to a Story that had a screenshot of Musk’s tweet that read, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”

“Send Me Location,” Zuckerberg wrote.

But his response didn’t seem to scare off Musk, who seemingly responded with a bout location in mind: the Vegas Octagon.

“I have this great move that I call ‘The Walrus,’ where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing,” he added.

Musk is no stranger to rolling up his sleeves, the billionaire is trained in Kyokushin karate, taekwondo, judo, and “Brazilian jiu-jitsu briefly” during his childhood.

On one occasion, Musk even shared a photo of himself squaring off against a sumo wrestler.

“Managed to throw him, but it cost me smashing my c5-c6 disc & 8 years of mega back pain,” he tweeted last year.

Zuckerberg, for his part, is known for his jiu-jitsu skills.

The tech magnate shocked social media in May with a now-viral Instagram post showing the once-puny tech geek flinging his opponents en route to gold and silver medals at a Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament.

On May 6, he took to Instagram to share images from the bout, writing, “Competed in my first jiu jitsu tournament and won some medals ???????? for the Guerrilla Jiu Jitsu team. Thanks to @davecamarillo @khaiwu @intense0ne for training me!”

And this isn’t the first time Musk has challenged a public figure to take him on.

In March, the Tesla CEO jokingly summoned Russian President Vladimir Putin to “single combat” — and sparked a feud with some Kremlin officials in the process.

Suffice it to say, the bout didn’t come to life.
