Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, two high-profile tech entrepreneurs, have been publicly challenging each other to a mixed martial arts cage fight in Las Vegas. Musk announced that the fight will be live-streamed on a platform referred to as X (previously known as Twitter), and all proceeds will go to charity for veterans. He tweeted on Sunday:

Talks of the mega-fight began in June, with both engaging in taunts and preparation, and Zuckerberg even hinting at his experience in jiujitsu. When questioned about the point of the fight, Musk described it as a “civilized form of war.” Meta, Zuckerberg’s company, has not commented on the matter.

According to Dana White, the President of the UFC, this fight is far from a joke. White stated during a conversation with TMZ that both billionaires are ready to make a fight in the octagon official.

White told TMZ:

“They both said, ‘Yeah, we’ll do it.’ They both want to do it,” White added. “Mark hit me up first and said, ‘Is [Elon] serious?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, let me ask him.’ I asked him, and he said, ‘Yeah, I’m dead serious.’”

“This would be the biggest fight ever in the history of the world. Bigger than anything that’s ever been done. It would break all pay-per-view records. These guys would raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charity. You don’t have to be a fighting fan to be interested in this fight. Everybody would want to see it.”

“The biggest fight of all time was Floyd Mayweather and Conor [McGregor], I just think it triples that. I think it triples what that did. There’s no limit on what that thing can make. … Everybody would watch it, everybody would want to see it.”
