Following his agreement to engage in a cage match against Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg is now joining forces with two UFC champions in preparation for the potential showdown.
In the days following the UFC 290 event in Las Vegas, Zuckerberg welcomed UFC middleweight champion Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya and UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski to his residence in Northern California.
The trio wasted no time and hit the gym for training, seemingly taking place in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, Sportstiger.com reports.
Israel Adesanya took to social media on Tuesday to share a snapshot of himself alongside Zuckerberg and Volkanovski, documenting their training session. Adesanya’s caption praised the competitive spirit of the 39-year-old tech mogul.
Adesanya made it clear that they are taking the endeavour seriously writing, “No Fugazi with Mark. This is Serious Business!” Zuckerberg expressed his gratitude in the comments section, acknowledging the support of the UFC stars and calling it an “honour” to train with them.
