Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg’s most anticipated cage fight has taken a new twist. On Sunday, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg apparently called off a cage fight with Twitter’s owner. In a post on Threads, he said he would be “focused on competing against people who take the sport seriously”.

“I think we can all agree that Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on. I proposed a real date. Dana White offered to make this a legitimate charity match. Elon wouldn’t confirm the date, then said He needs surgery and is now asking for a practice round in my backyard,” he said in the post. Mark’s post was not endorsed by Musk. Musk has lashed out at his tech rivals on the X (formerly known as Twitter) social media platform. Zack is a chicken,” Musk posted.

In another thread, an X user suggested Zuckerberg was “trying to back off” in his battle with Musk, who replied, “He can’t eat a trendy sandwich because that would be cannibalism.”

Musk added in reply to another user, “Can’t wait to knock on his door tomorrow.”

According to Variety, the CEOs of Meta and X/Twitter started with a series of back-and-forth messages on their platforms, sparking discussions about a potential MMA cage fight. Musk kicked off the exchange by replying to a June 20 Twitter post in which he wrote: “If he laughs, I’d be open to a cage match.”

Recently, Musk announced that the “Zack vs. Musk battle” will be broadcast live through X, and all proceeds will be donated to charity. Zuckerberg hit back at Musk with a subtle dig at X/Twitter, writing on Threads: “Shouldn’t we be using a more reliable platform that actually raises money for charity?”
