The much-anticipated cage fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg is taking a surprising turn, evoking the grandeur of ancient Rome. The battle of these tech giants will be live-streamed on Meta and X platforms, designed to reflect the aesthetics of ancient Rome, as shared by Musk. The event will be managed by their respective foundations rather than UFC, as confirmed by Musk on X (formerly known as Twitter).
This unexpected shift in setting comes after discussions between Musk and Italy’s Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and Minister of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano, both of whom have expressed their support for the showdown. Musk’s statement emphasizes a respectful nod to Italy’s historical and current significance, and all proceeds from the event will be directed towards veterans, aligning the fight with a noble cause. Adding to the excitement, Musk recently provided a health update, revealing that while his C5/C6 fusion is stable, a minor surgery is required due to his right shoulder blade rubbing against his ribs.
“I underwent a 3-hour MRI on Monday. The good news is that my C5/C6 fusion is strong and not a concern. However, there’s a minor issue with my right shoulder blade rubbing against my ribs, necessitating a simple surgery. Recovery is expected to take only a few months.”
