Those comments were in response to Musk and Zuckerberg’s recent exchange on social media, as they traded shots at each other over a fight.
Following reports that Zuckerberg may set up a rival to Twitter, Musk responded with ‘Fight me, Zuck.’ Things escalated thereafter as Elon was open to a cage fight.
I’m up for a cage match if he is lol

Zuckerberg does have previous MMA experience, having won a gold and silver medal at a recent Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition, as the pair agreed to the bout.

And now Jones has had his say on the matter. The UFC-heavyweight champion knows a thing or two about MMA, having beaten Ciryl Gane to win the title after three years out of the cage.
With that being said, Jones backed Zuckerberg by offering to help him get ready for such a bout.
You already know I am Team Zuck…. Let me know if you need a training partner!

“They both said, ‘yeah we’ll do it.’ They both want to do it. Mark Zuckerberg hit me up first and said, ‘is he serious?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, let me ask him’ and 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 has 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 fight fan to be interested in this fight. Everybody would want to see it,” White
