Gov. Abbott weighs in on potential Mark Zuckerberg-Elon Musk cage match: 'Biggest fight'

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott took to Twitter to weigh in on a potential battle of the billionaires between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk.

What began as banter on Twitter between Musk, who owns the social media platform, and several users evolved into him challenging Meta CEO Zuckerberg to a cage match.

The Zuck, who owns Facebook and Instagram, appeared to accept the challenge, prompting Abbott, UFC President Dana White and others to comment on the potential bout.

“Do it,” the Texas governor tweeted. “The biggest fight in UFC history.”

A user commented on the post warning Musk to “be careful” as the Meta chief trains Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Seemingly unphased, the Twitter owner then said he would be willing to step into a cage with him.

Musk simply said: “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol.”

The next day, Zuckerberg appeared to accept the challenge on his own platform.

“If this is for real, I will do it,” Musk said, later suggesting the “Vegas Octagon” as the location.

UFC’s Dana White told TMZ Sports the billionaires are “absolutely dead serious” about fighting.

“They both said, ‘Yeah, we’ll do it.’ They both want to do it,” he added.

He continued: “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.”
