Billionaires Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk are discussing a cage fight, so let’s look at their respective height as fans are already making bets.
The Twitter owner prompted the Facebook founder to reply to his Tweet about a cage fight and before one could comprehend the magnitude of it, Mark Zuckerberg accepted the challenge.
In the Twitter exchange that’s gone viral, Elon Musk even shares the location for the fight. Only time can tell us if the fight will happen in actuality. But, there’s no harm in looking at Mark and Elon’s stats.
Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk’s heights compared
Elon is 6 ft 2 in tall, while Mark stands at 5 feet 7 in. It is hard to determine their individual weight as they aren’t officially confirmed and are subject to changes.
However, the height difference shouldn’t be the sole factor to lean toward either as it takes a lot more skills than their physical frame to win the challenge.
The cage fight discusses began with Elon’s Tweet directed at Mark asking the latter if he “was up for a fight”. The Facebook CEO was quick to reply to Elon’s question saying: “send me the location.”
Elon sent the location in the following Tweet – Vegas Octagon – the competition mat and fenced-in area used for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bouts, reports BBC.
Billionaires are both trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu
Elon and Mark are both trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. The Twitter boss has experience in yokushin karate, taekwondo and judo as well.
The Tesla owner was trained in martial arts when he was a child and his own children have been training since they were 6. It isn’t clear if Elon has fought any matches in the recent past.
Meanwhile, Mark has been invested in Mixed Martial Arts since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. He trained in martial arts all along to maintain his “energy level and focus.”
Most recently, he competed in gi and no gi jiu-jitsu tournaments, both in the white belt master 2 lightweight division.
