Social media can’t wait for a potential battle of the billionaires between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, with Musk’s Chinese doppelganger comedian Yilong Ma now dropping clips of him taking on Zuckerberg.
The world’s richest tech titans vowed to throw it into a cage fight last month in what would be a clash for the ages.
The fight was even supported by UFC president Dana White, who claimed it would be the biggest fight of all time.
But now Ylang Ma – who bears an uncanny resemblance to Musk – has now released a series of clips in which he wrestles with a version of Zuckerberg, portrayed by a man wearing a box on his head – otherwise known as Zuckerbox.
Elon Musk’s Chinese doppelganger, comedian Yilong Ma, has released a TikTok video depicting an imaginary fight with a fake Mark Zuckerberg.
The anticipated clash between two billionaire tech moguls in a cage fight has sparked excitement on social media with Ma’s videos adding a humorous twist.
The clips show the mother battling a Zuckerberg-like character, portrayed by a man wearing a box on his head, known as the ‘Zuckerbox’.
Ma’s clips have garnered millions of views on social media
The clips show various scenarios between Musk and Zuckerberg, whose on-again, off-again rivalry has long been bubbling just below the surface.
Meta’s new app, Threads, sparked massive trolling on Twitter last week, along with the Tesla titan suing Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg has ignored the provocation, but hasn’t always been above the fray.
Two weeks ago, before Threads was published, he offered to meet Musk for a cage fight, as a joke – but the idea seems to have captured their imaginations online.

In a back-and-forth that has gone viral, Musk tweeted on June 20 bragging that he was ‘up for a cage match if it was him’, to which the meta boss responded on Instagram with ‘send me the location’.
In the TikTok video, sporting do’s shorts and boxing gloves, Ma illustrates how her American name can defeat her social media rivals.
He punches Zuckerbox and even manages to stop him by showing off his boxing skills.
Instead of adopting the Musk as the proposed grand ‘Vegas Octagon’ venue, Ma’s battles took place on a patch of grass.
In one clip, the mother passionately shouts, ‘Challenge Zuckerberg! How wonderful!’ With him showing a winner in every round.
Till date, TikTok fight video has over nine million views.

While a reality face-to-face cage fight still seems a long way off, both the Meta founder and Twitter chief have received offers from various UFC stars to help them train.
Earlier this month, the 39-year-old Facebook founder posed for a photo with UFC featherweight champion, Alex Volkanovski and two-time UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya at a gym in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
Musk, 52, has received similar offers from other high-profile mixed martial artists such as Jorge Masvidal, Dominick Cruz and Georges St-Pierre.
Supporters applauded Musk for taking his training seriously, despite no formal agreement with Zuckerberg for the proposed cage match, which claims could generate 25 million pay-per-view buys.
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.
