UFC Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is open about which side he’s picking for the potential Mark Zuckerberg vs. Elon Musk MMA fight.

Jon Jones ready to help Zuckerberg for Musk fight

Mark Zuckerberg vs. Elon Musk-, a potential brawl between the two tech billionaires has gained pace after Zuckerberg accepted Musk’s challenge of fighting inside a cage.

In a recent Twitter thread, Musk called out Zuckerberg for a fight inside the cage, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol”

The challenge soon got under the radar of Zuckerberg, who nodded to the challenge through a story on his Instagram, with the caption “send me location”.

In the wake of the talks surrounding a potential fight between Zuckerberg and Musk, Jon Jones took to Twitter to show his support for the founder of Facebook and CEO of META, and even offered Zuckerberg a helping hand in training.

“You already know I am Team Zuck…. Let me know if you need a training partner!” the two division UFC champ wrote on Twitter.

In recent times, Zuckerberg has found himself into the fight game, becoming aspirational mixed martial arts fighter and on top of that, has been winning Jiu-Jitsu tournaments as well under the training of grappling specialist Dave Camarillo. He has also undergone drills with ONE grappling champion Mikey Musumeci as well as pro MMA fighter and PFL newcomer Khai Wu.

While its no doubt that Musk has the upper hand on Zuckerberg when it comes to sheer physical size, being six more inches of height and around 30 to 40 pounds of extra weight, the recent offer from Jones would significantly increase Zuckerberg’s training level, giving him an edge regarding the actual fighting experience.

If all the pieces fall into the right places and both Zuckerberg and Musk are actually booked for a fight, then UFC president Dana White would be willing to step in as the one promoting the fight, as he recently showed his willingness to do the same.

“I’ve been talking to both of them back and forth, [Elon and I] have a call in about five minutes here,” said White on The Pat McAfee Show.“I don’t know, listen. First of all, if they both agree and they both say, let’s start here. Elon Musk is six foot two, two-hundred and twenty pounds. Mark Zuckerberg is not, okay. There’s a huge difference, this thing would be like UFC 1 for Christ’s sake.”

“We’d have to figure out the weight stuff, I don’t know how the commissions will look at this thing… Well, it would be an exhibition, it wouldn’t be sanctioned by a commission. There’s still a lot of things you would have to work through to make this fight happen. But, what I love and respect is that both of these guys are down, they both want to do it. They both want to fight, for people that aren’t even fight fans, this is fun. It’s fun to talk about, it’s fun to think about, you know me man, I’m in the middle trying to put the pieces together and see what we can do,” he added. [H/T BJPenn.com]
