Mark Zuckerberg showed off his ripped physique in his latest Instagram post alongside two of today’s most successful MMA fighters.
The 39-year-old Meta boss flexed his six pack while standing between Israel Adesanya and Alex Volkanovski in the photo shared with his 12.1 million followers on Tuesday, which already has nearly 2 million likes.
Adesanya and Volkanovski have 50 UFC wins and only four losses between the two of them.
“No fugazi with Mark. This is serious business,” Adesanya captioned the three-picture post, seemingly nodding to Zuckerberg’s potential cage fight with Elon Musk.
While the tech titans are reportedly “dead serious” about bringing the fight to fruition, a time and place has yet to be announced, though UFC President Dana White said he’s spoken to both parties about making it happen in Las Vegas.
Zuckerberg is widely expected to come out on top over the 52-year-old Musk, especially after winning gold and silver medals at a Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament in May.
When the Facebook founder appeared as a guest on “The Joe Rogan Experience” last year, he told UFC commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan about his interest for the sport, which began during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zuckerberg has since posted a host of photos while training with the top names in MMA and jiu-jitsu, including black belt competitor Mikey Musumeci, MMA world champ trainer Dave Camarillo and cage fighter Khai Wu.
Musk has tapped his own high-profile trainers.
Two weeks ago, the Twitter owner was pictured during an “impromptu” training session with Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Lex Fridman.
Though Musk has joked that his signature move is “The Walrus, where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing,” Fridman said he was “extremely impressed” by the father-of-10’s “strength, power and skill.”
He has also accepted an offer from UFC legend Georges St-Pierre to train him for the impending cage match.
The 42-year-old retired champ first offered his services late last month, tweeting at Musk: “I’m a huge fan of yours and it would be an absolute honor to help you and be your training partner for the challenge against Zuckerberg.”
Musk — who had a similar offer from accused human-trafficking rapist Andrew Tate — announced just after midnight that he was going in on Team GSP.
“Ok, let’s do it,” he replied to St-Pierre with two fire emojis.
While onlookers await an actual cage fight, social media users have suggested that a metaphorical cage fight has already begun with Meta’s launch of Threads last week.
Dubbed the “Twitter killer,” Threads was the top free app on Apple’s App Store in the UK and the US 24 hours after its release.
Within just five days, the social media site banked more than 100 million users — and put Musk on the defense.
After it was revealed that Twitter’s traffic was tanking as Threads rose in popularity, Musk challenged Zuckerberg to a “d–k measuring content” in a bizarre tweet.
Musk made the proposition just hours after calling his nemesis a “cuck.”
