Dana White: Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk Are "Dead Serious" About UFC Fight

An unexpected war of words online has led to one of the year's biggest talking points. Billionaires Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk are dead serious about a cage fight.

The drama between these two entrepreneurs after Mark Zuckerberg, who is most famous for being the owner and founder of Facebook, posted a Jiu-Jitsu session between himself and ONE Submission Grappling Champion Mikey Musumeci. Zuckerberg has been training in Jiu-Jitsu for multiple months and recently competed in grappling matches.

Serial Entrepreneur Elon Musk responded to this clip on Twitter, claiming he was down for a cage fight. Zuckerberg then responded by quoting former UFC Lightweight World Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov saying, "Send me location." Musk quickly responded, challenging the Facebook CEO to a fight in the Octagon in Vegas.

The President of the UFC, Dana White, also chimed in on the unraveling drama between the two.

I was speaking to Mark and Elon last night, and both guys are absolutely dead serious about this.
