In an intriguing turn of events, Elon Musk seems to have accepted Georges St-Pierre's offer to train him for a potential showdown against Mark Zuckerberg.
The picture of Musk and St-Pierre together suggests a collaboration is in the works.
After a Twitter exchange between Musk and Zuckerberg regarding a possible cage fight, MMA stars aligned themselves with the respective fighters. Jon Jones voiced his support for 'team Zuck,' while St-Pierre offered his assistance to Musk.
Despite initial skepticism surrounding the legitimacy of the fight, recent developments indicate that it may indeed take place.
A representative from the Italian Ministry of Culture has confirmed that the government has granted permission to use the Colosseum in Rome as the venue for the event.
Adding fuel to the excitement, a photo surfaced showing Elon Musk engaged in what appears to be a training session with Georges St-Pierre.
“Great training session with 3 men I really admire,” St-Pierre wrote in the caption. “Combined IQ in this photo is 1000. Not including me.”
Fridman would also share the image on Twitter with the following caption:
“Had a great training session with @elonmusk, @GeorgesStPierre, and Jon Danaher last night. Everything about this was epic!”
Musk replied soon after:
“Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training.”
Elon Musk will need all the training and help he can get as while he has a size advantage over Zuckerberg, the Meta owner already trains jiu-jitsu and even won a gold medal in his first tournament.
However, with St-Pierre and especially Danaher, he has the best help he can possibly get.
As for whether a fight between him and Zuckerberg will actually happen remains to be seen. UFC president Dana White seems to think it will and declared it would be the biggest of all time.
“This would be the biggest fight ever, in the history of the world,” White said last month. “It would break all pay-per-view records.
“… The biggest fight of all-time was Floyd [Mayweather] and Conor [McGregor], I just think it triples that — it [Musk-Zuckerberg] triples what that did, there's no limit on what that thing can make.”
