Musk Challenges Zuckerberg To Cage Fight
Fox Business reported that this all started when various Twitter users including Musk started commenting on claims that Meta is working on a Twitter-like application that would be direct competition for the platform.
“I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options,” Musk tweeted.
Another Twitter user then mockingly warned Musk to “be careful” because Zuckerberg “does “ju jitsu now.”
“I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,” Musk replied.

Zuckerberg fired back on Instagram by posting a screenshot of Musk’s tweet, saying, “”Send Me Location.”
“If this is for real, I will do it,” Musk wrote on Twitter in response when a user sent him a screenshot of this post.

Musk later admitted that he “almost never” goes to the gym or works out “except for picking up my kids and throwing them in the air.” He also jokingly said that he has a “great move” that he calls “The Walrus” in which he would “just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing.”

Zuckerberg’s Ju Jitsu Experience
While Musk is the taller and heavier one, Zuckerberg recently won a no-gi white belt, 149-pound division tournament in Silicon Valley. Later that day, he placed second in a gi category.
Zuckerberg has spent the past year training BJJ under Dave Camarillo, who previously mentored elite UFC fighters like the former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and the welterweight standouts Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck.
“He’s amazing,” Camarillo said of Zuckerberg. “He is an extremely hard worker, as everybody knows. But a lot of people have a business and they’re successful and they have that side of their life, and rarely do they dip into the physical side, especially with something like jiu-jitsu and MMA, and have the same amount of success or even go past Day 1 or Month 1.”
“He’s not that kind of guy,” he continued. “I think he has a good balance between what he does with his business and what he does in the physical realm. And he excels. He’s one of the best students I’ve ever had.”

Zuckerberg’s Plan To Destroy Twitter
As for Zuckerberg’s plan to compete against Twitter, he’s working on something that has the codename Project 92, and he’s already convinced such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey and the Dalai Lama to agree to post there.
“We’ve been hearing from creators and public figures who are interested in having a platform that is sanely run,” Meta’s chief product officer Chris Cox told employees earlier this month, according to Daily Mail. He went on to say that celebrities are desperate for a platform “that they believe that they can trust and rely upon for distribution.”
Reports have alleged that this social media app would eventually be called “Threads,” and that it will have the same continuous scroll of text that Twitter has. It would also allegedly feature buttons similar to both the Like and Retweet functions.

(not making this up!)
META, the same company that copied Snapchat, TikTok, StumbleUpon, Foursquare, BeReal and Clubhouse, began coding ‘Project 92’ three months after Elon acquired Twitter.
