In the looming clash of billionaires Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, New Zealand’s renowned City Kickboxing gym seems to have taken a side.
Yesterday, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski took to Instagram to share photos after a training session, featuring a remarkably toned Zuckerberg. In the comments section, the CEO of Meta expressed his “honorable” experience training with two of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the sport.

This wasn’t Volkanovski’s first encounter with Zuckerberg. The featherweight champ, who recently defended his title for the fifth time by defeating Yair Rodriguez in the third round, had previously trained with Zuckerberg in February during a Metaverse showcase. In a recent interview on The MMA Hour, Volkanovski revealed his belief that the much-anticipated Zuckerberg vs. Musk showdown would involve the assistance of UFC President Dana White.
Moreover, Volkanovski expressed confidence in Zuckerberg’s potential triumph.
“I believe it’s going to happen. And let me tell you, Zuck’s got that competitive spirit,” Volkanovski stated.
“He’s a well-rounded individual,” Volkanovski continued. “As I mentioned before, he’s proficient in striking and grappling. Although he focuses more on grappling, he is cautious on his feet, especially when sparring with skilled fighters. Their intellect plays a significant role, as they don’t want to risk taking punches to their heads. So, I anticipate more emphasis on grappling, where Zuckerberg has greater experience and competitiveness.”
As retired UFC legend Georges St-Pierre recently shared training photos alongside Musk, it seems that the battle lines within the MMA community have already been drawn in anticipation of this potential matchup.
