Watch out, Elon! Meta boss Mark Zuckerberg shows off his incredibly ripped body after a training session with UFC stars as he prepares for a billionaire fight with Twitter rival Musk
Mark Zuckerberg showed off his incredibly ripped body ahead of his hyped billionaire fight with Twitter rival Elon Musk after emerging from a training session with the UFC star.
On Tuesday, Metta Boss posed for a photo with UFC featherweight champion, Alex Volkanovski and two-time UFC middleweight champion ‘Israel Adesanya’ at a gym in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
‘No Fugazi with Mark,’ Adesanya shared on Instagram with a shark emoji. ‘This is serious business!!’
Zuckerberg commented in a post that it was an ‘honour to train with you guys!’ Since the launch earlier this month of a new contender on Twitter — Threads — he’s been shaping himself to take on Musk.
Last week, Volkanovski’s agent confirmed that the Australian had been approached about training Zuckerberg ahead of his MMA fight against his big tech rival.

Zuckerberg is said to be a big fan of the UFC and has developed a friendship with Volkanovski in recent years.
‘Yeah, he’s a mate,’ Volkanovski said before the fight last year. I knew well before he appeared in the UFC that he was a big fan. He loves sports.
‘I consider him my partner. Again, he is a cool friend, we get along.’
It is unknown whether ‘Zuk’ – a Harvard dropout – is ‘tight’ with Adesanya although he has been offered training by a wide range of UFC fighters, including Jon Jones.
Musk, on the other hand, has received similar offers from other high-profile mixed martial artists such as Jorge Masvidal, Dominick Cruz and Georges St-Pierre.
A confirmation and official date is yet to be revealed, much to speculation between Musk and Zuckerberg.
Last week, Musk admitted he needed ‘a lot more training’ after a few tough sessions with St-Pierre, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in MMA history.
The 52-year-old posed for a photo with GSP, popular American podcast host and fight expert Lex Friedman and martial arts instructor John Danaher as he got himself in shape ahead of his anticipated $25 million pay-per-view buy fight with ‘Zuke. .’
GSPO shared the same photo, poking fun at the wealth of knowledge on display in the photo, tweeting: ‘Great training session with 3 men I really appreciate. The combined IQ of this picture is 1000. “Doesn’t include me”
‘Asolei fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need *much* more training,’ Musk replied for his part on Twitter.
June was also pictured training with the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt specialist.
