Mark Zuckerberg has fully immersed himself in the company of UFC fighters as he prepares for his speculated bout against Elon Musk. The CEO of Meta was captured engaging in training sessions with two prominent figures in the sport, Israel Adesanya and Alex Volkanovski, during the weekend.
Zuck isn't just hanging with any UFC fighter. He's hanging with the middleweight and featherweight champions.
While some fans speculated that it might all be in good humor, there's no denying that Zuckerberg appeared incredibly fit. His physique is undoubtedly prepared for a potential clash with Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla and Twitter if their rumored fight comes to fruition.
Regardless of whether the billionaire showdown occurs, Zuckerberg is relishing the opportunity to spend time with the top talent in the UFC. Recently, he was captured on video water-skiing behind a boat alongside Adesanya, Volkanovski, and several others.
Donning a life jacket and black shorts, the social media tycoon effortlessly rides the choppy waves from the stern of the boat. The UFC celebrities capture the moment on film, panning around to showcase the breathtaking views in the vicinity before finally zooming in on Zuckerberg.
TMZ reports that Adesanya and Volkanovski traveled to Zuckerberg's residence in northern California following UFC 290 in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
In addition to his apparent training sessions with the UFC stars, Zuckerberg achieved success in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament earlier this year, securing two medals for his efforts.

In a recent statement, UFC president Dana White revealed that both Zuckerberg and Musk expressed their enthusiasm for the fight after Musk publicly challenged his rival. This declaration came forth last month.
"I was talking to both Elon and Mark last night, both guys are absolutely dead serious about this," he said.
Count MMA journalist Ariel Helwani among those who believe the fight is a real possibility. "I really think it can happen," Helwani said.
