UFC President Dana White has confirmed via TMZ that both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are resolutely committed to fighting each other inside the hallowed octagon, and their clash would be the most monumental fight in history.
It all began when the SpaceX CEO responded to reports of Zuckerberg planning to launch his own version of Twitter, casually throwing out a challenge by stating:
"I'm up for a cage match if he is lol."
