Elon Musk has taken to Twitter – or X, I guess, please don't hit me, Mr. Musk – and gave the world an update on the cage match between him and rival Mark Zuckerberg.
Since June the idea of a cage fight between the Meta and X heads has the internet in a weird limbo, wondering: is it happening? Is it just a meme? What the heck is going on there, don't they have companies to look after? Well, it looks like it might actually happen!
Boys will be boys at the end of the day and beating each other up may be more important than managing the biggest social media platforms. Fine with me, let's see what we know so far!

Musk vs. Zuckerberg: Livestream Incoming!
As Elon Musk himself X-plained on Twitter, the fight will not be managed by UFC, but by Musk and Zuckerberg's foundations.
The match will be streamed on Twitter (sounds less NSFW than "XStreams", doesn't it?) and Meta, both donating their proceeds to a good cause supporting veterans. Even more reason to look forward to the two of them beating each other up when actual fighters profit from the little stunt.
The event will take place in Italy and according to Musk, even Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and the Minister of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano were dragged into the ordeal, but have agreed to "an epic location."
The fight will be managed by my and Zuck's foundations (not UFC).— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 11, 2023
Livestream will be on this platform and Meta. Everything in camera frame will be ancient Rome, so nothing modern at all.
I spoke to the PM of Italy and Minister of Culture. They have agreed on an epic location.
When Will The Fight Take Place?
Originally, Zuckerberg suggested August 26 to step into the ring with Musk, but according to the Meta CEO, Musk didn't confirm that. And, even better, he wasn't "holding his breath". Sassy!
August 26 may be a bit soon actually as it seems there are lots of preparations yet to be made. But apparently it's happening! How Musk intends to prove himself against Zuckerberg is beyond me, though.
Zuckerberg is not only over 10 years younger than Musk, he's also training with actual MMA coaches and at just a glance it becomes X-traordinarily clear: he's way fitter than Musk seems to be.
