UFC president Dana White has revealed that he has been in conversation with the Culture Minister of Italy to have the much anticipated Mark Zuckerberg vs. Elon Musk MMA fight take place at the Colosseum in Rome.

Dana White pushing to have Mark Zuckerberg vs. Elon Musk fight at the Colosseum

The possibility of a mixed martial arts matchup between the two tech titans gained publicity when Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, challenged Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, to a duel in a fighting cage, followed by the latter accepting the challenge.

Given the popularity it has gained among fans, both Musk and Zuckerberg have seriously begun preparing for the showdown. They have even received advice and training from UFC fighters such as Alexander Volkanovski, Israel Adesanya, Jon Jones and former champion Georges St-Pierre.

The excitement surrounding this potential super fight between the two has gradually reached new heights, becoming one of the most anticipated fights of this year, and as revealed by the president of the UFC Dana White himself, there is a possibility that the iconic fight will take place in a setting as iconic as the Colosseum in Rome.

“It’s real, it’s real, they do wanna fight. We were literally talking about the Colosseum for that fight. I actually did have a meeting with the minister of culture’s team in Italy to actually have that fight in the Colosseum, if it would happen,” White told Mike Tyson on the Hotboxin’ podcast. “It would be MMA (mixed martial arts). We’re talking. No steroids, no steroids allowed; these guys would be drug tested. Zuckerberg takes this s*** very seriously. He is a huge UFC fan, he trains. He’s an MMA fan, I should say. Elon grew up doing judo, he’s a legit judo guy.”

“This is one of those fights that, if we did do that, I would build a killer undercard with tons of great fights and them in the main event. But think about how big that fight is! Two of the richest, most powerful guys in the f***ing world are gonna fight on the biggest stage ever. Everybody would [pay for it]! Who doesn’t wanna see that fight? That’s the kind of fight your grandmother would watch. [Donald] Trump would have to fight [Vladimir] Putin for a fight to be bigger than that,” added White. [H/T Independent.co.uk]
