Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg fight edges closer as UFC chief Dana White meets with minister over hosting at Colosseum

ELON Musk’s proposed fight with Mark Zuckerberg could take place at the famous Colosseum in Rome.

UFC boss Dana White claimed he’s held talks with senior officials in Italy over using the historic venue.

Twitter boss Musk and Meta chief Zuckerberg have yet to agree a fight date despite their war of words online.

White clearly wants a piece of the pie and predicts the fight would generate $1billion in revenue.

He discussed the plans on the latest episode of Mike Tyson’s podcast.

The UFC boss said: “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.

“It would be MMA. 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.

“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.”

The Twitter chief was accused of dragging his feet by Zuckerberg, plunging the fight into doubt.

The Meta boss claims he is ready to go and even built an octagon in his backyard to train.

But he says Musk is yet to respond to his proposed fight date of August 26.

And the Twitter boss says he will need an MRI and possible surgery before the fight can go ahead.

Musk is dealing with an apparent neck and back problem and claims he will know more on his injury this week.

Should the fight take place, it seems Musk has already staked his claim for the broadcasting rights.

“Zuck v Musk fight will be live-streamed on X,” he tweeted, adding: “All proceeds will go to charity for veterans.”

Zuckerberg was seemingly less than impressed with part of this plan, however, posting on Threads: “Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?”
