The post Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk fight in the Roman Colosseum after it appeared first on Consequential.
The proposed cage fight between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk could take place at Rome’s historic Colosseum.
TMZ reports that Italy’s Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano has approached Zuckerberg and Musk to host the fight. Sangiuliano is also in contact with UFC President Dana White, who will help promote the match if it happens.
The nearly 2,000-year-old Colosseum is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Although it is one of Italy’s most popular tourist attractions, much of the Colosseum is in ruins and the venue has limited capacity inside.
Paul McCartney had previously organized a charity concert at the Colosseum for 400 lucky fans who were in attendance. Earlier this month there were reports that Zuckerberg’s Meta is developing its own text-based social media platform to compete with Musk’s Twitter.
Musk challenged his fellow tech mogul to a cage fight. Zuckerberg, who began training in Brazilian Jiujitsu during the pandemic, accepted the challenge.
In the weeks since then, both Zuckerberg and Musk have been adamant on continuing the fight, with Musk even posting training photos. However, Musk’s mother has publicly encouraged her son to cancel physical fighting and engage in “verbal fighting” instead.
