Celebrity boxing just might be reaching its apex. Tech billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg appear to have agreed to compete against one another in an mma cage fight. Could you imagine the sights? Every promoter in town has been taking to social media offering to host the billionaire bash, even UFC President Dana White. This matchup still seems highly unlikely to ever manifest, but nonetheless, betting odds have surfaced.
Online gambling site SportsBetting.ag has Zuckerberg opening up as a heavy betting favorite over his rival Musk. The main man at Meta is being offered up at a sizable -500 moneyline, and a successful $100 gamble at those odds would only bring back $20 worth of profit. As for the Twitter/Tesla CEO, he is on deck with a sizable +300 underdog tag. That means throwing down a hundred bucks on Elon could see a potential payout of $400. The website has a caveat in there stipulating that this match must happen in 2023 for action, and an official winner must be declared.

Who wins Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg?
The wideness of this line could be due to the recent footage of Zuck competing in local BJJ tournaments, as well as training under the watchful eye of Jiu-Jitsu savant Mikey Musumeci. Elon on the other hand, is cool with Joe Rogan, but that might be as far as his martial arts experience goes. I don’t want to have to pick either in a fist fight, but if I must, then I have to go with the guy that has that white belt gusto.
I would even go as far as favoring Zuckerberg to win by submission… probably due to exhaustion, panic, or other. But hold on, there’s also the possibility that both of these guys are either aliens, or robots. Probably robots, in which case I’ll take Zuck via Sufferin’ Succotash.
Oh, and for the record, I would absolutely watch this with great pleasure. Uber-rich guys fighting for the entertainment of others? Historically speaking, it’s typically the wealthy guys paying the poor folk to scrap, but this is the opposite of that. Maybe ‘probability’ really is broken and this match actually gets booked. Team chaos!
