Following a recent Twitter exchange between Musk and Zuckerberg over a potential cage fight, MMA stars on the side of both fighters expressed their intention to train the respective sides.
Jon Jones made it clear that he was for ‘team Zuck,’ while St-Pierre offered to help Musk.
“@elonmusk I’m a huge fan of yours and it would be an absolute honor to help you and be your training partner for the challenge against Zuckerberg,” St-Pierre
In response, Musk replied: “OK, let’s do it.”
Despite the initial skepticism that this was a gimmick, it appears that the fight could go ahead.
A representative from the Italian Ministry of Culture confirmed that the government had given the nod for the Colosseum in Rome to be used as a venue.
With that being said, Musk was pictured with Georges St-Pierre in what looked like a training session.
