UPDATE Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Rejects Elon Musk Ask for Practice Round Fight, Moves On to Serious Opponents


Yesterday I told you Elon Musk biographer Walter Isaacson shared a DM from his subject proposing a rehearsal fight with Mark Zuckerberg in his backyard. There was a proposal on the table for a mixed martial arts death cage match between the two billionaires.

Zuckerberg has replied with a “forget it.” He wants to move on to fighting “serious” opponents. He won’t meet Musk at Dusk.

Ah well. We all new this was never going to happen. And it’s just as well that it doesn’t. These two guys could do a lot more productive things with their minds and money.
