The tech rivals discussed the possible UFC bout in a string of social media messages to their millions of Twitter and Instagram followers.

Billionaire technology rivals Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have agreed to fight each other in a cage match.
Twitter owner Musk, 51, said on his social media platform he was “up for a cage fight” with Zuckerberg, 39.
The Facebook founder and Meta chief executive and chairman then captioned a post “send me location” to his 12 million Instagram followers featuring a screenshot of the Tesla and SpaceX chief’s message.
In tweets to more than 144 million followers on the site, Musk then said “Vegas Octagon”, in reference to the eight-sided caged fighting arena used in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is based in Las Vegas.
A spokesman for Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, said he had “nothing to add” to the social media posts, which went viral, with users speculating on who would win the bout and posting memes, including mocked-up posters.
Musk, who completed a $44bn (£35bn) takeover of Twitter last October, joked: “I have this great move that I call “The Walrus”, where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing.”
He also tweeted: “I almost never work out, except for picking up my kids & throwing them in the air.”

After competing in Redwood City, California, for the Guerrilla jiu-jitsu team, with which he trains, Zuckerberg shared the news on Instagram with photos of him posing with his coaches and tussling with opponents on the ground.
“Competed in my first jiu-jitsu tournament and won some medals 🥇🥈 for the Guerrilla jiu-jitsu team. Thanks to @davecamarillo @khaiwu @intense0ne for training me!” Zuckerberg captioned the post.
The pictures also showed Zuckerberg wearing a pair of shorts gifted to him by mixed martial arts champion Alexander Volkanovski.

By Brad Snyder at ringside
In a lightweight special feature, 19-year-old southpaw Abdullah Mason (9-0, 8 KOs) impressively knocked out Alex de Oliveira (20-5, 14 KOs) in the second round. Time was 2:18.
Unbeaten junior wlterweight Tiger Johnson (9-0, 5 KOs) defeated Jonathan Montrel (15-2, 10 KOs) by UD (80-72, 80-72, 80-72) over eight rounds.
Dante Benjamin Jr. (7-0, 5 KOs) exploded out of the gate to score a knockdown, then get a stoppage right after his opponent, Mirady Zola got up.  The light heavyweight contest ended with the TKO at the 1:56 mark of the first round.  The loss drops Zola to (4-3, 1 KO).
Super middleweight DeAndre Ware (16-4-2, 9 KOs) won by six round unanimous decision (58-56, 59-55, 59-55) over Decarlo Perez (19-9-1, 6 KOs).
Rance Ward touched leather to the face of fellow junior middleweight Husam Al Mashhadi, often, over six rounds. Ward appeared fresh and was able to walk Mashhadi down during the six rounds to take the majority decision (57-57, 58-56, 59-55) victory and improve to (8-5-1, 2 KOs). Meanwhile, it’s back to the drawing board for Mashhadi (6-1, 6 KOs), who suffered his first loss.
Junior Middleweight Nicklaus Flaz (11-2, 7 KOs) won a close fight by majority decision (76-76, 78-74, 77-75) over previously unbeaten Jahi Tucker (10-1, 5 KOs). The fight, which went all eight rounds, had moments where both fighters showed some ability to throw combinations.
Junior Lightweight Tyler McCreary (18-2-1, 8KOs) got the hometown crowd excited by landing strong left hooks to the body, left hooks to the head, and a strong right cross to his opponent, Deivi Julio (26-14, 16 KOs). Julio, who fought hard, did not have enough to sway the judges. The judges all saw the fight in favor of McCreary (59-54, 57-56, 57-56).
Why isnt this garbage on TV anywhere??
It’s on ESPN+
de Oliveira was embarrassing. Just stood there smiling and waiting to be hit. The ref literally had to tell him to fight back in round 1.
As boxing fans we’re all used to shocking mismatches… but ESPN take it to a new level.
I will keep an eye on Mason and see what develops for him.
