Team Khabib give their prediction for Mark Zuckerberg vs Elon Musk MMA showdown

UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov’s trainer Javier Mendez has made his prediction for Mark Zuckerberg vs Elon Musk.

Last week, Twitter chairman Musk and Meta boss Zuckerberg agreed to fight in a cage match.

Musk tweeted that he was “up for a cage fight” with his social media rival. To which Zuckerberg replied: “Send me location.”

Now, Nurmagomedov’s trainer Mendez has given his thoughts on the much-anticipated bout.

He told Grosvenor Sport: “The big advantage Zuckerberg has over Elon is that he's actively training and he's more of a dog right now because he entered a jiu-jitsu tournament, so that tells me a lot about him.

“From the little bit I've seen of Zuckerberg, he likes to engage and go at it. He's very competitive. If I'm not mistaken he did very well in a legitimate jiu-jitsu tournament, so he might have the dog in him because he was not afraid to expose himself.”

Mendez added: “Zuckerberg entering a legit tournament is a big risk to his ego, so I applaud that, it takes a lot of courage. That kinda tells me he's got the dog in him. All things considered, Zuckerberg is way ahead of Musk but you won't really know until you see what Musk possesses.”

UFC boss Dana White has also given his thoughts about the potential fight.

He told TMZ: “Talked with Mark and Elon last night, both guys are absolutely dead serious about this.

“The biggest fight of all time was Floyd (Mayweather) and Conor (McGregor), I just think it triples that. It triples what that did, there's no limit on what that thing can make.”

White also said: “Mark hit me up first and said, ‘Is Elon serious?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know, let me ask him.’ I asked Elon and he said, ‘Yeah, I’m dead serious.

“This would be the biggest fight ever in the history of the world, bigger than anything that’s ever been done.”

Musk has previously revealed his finishing move, he said: “I have this great move that I call 'The Walrus', where I just lie on top of my opponent and do nothing.”
