Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, revealed on Friday that he and Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, have reached an MMA agreement.
Musk announced through Twitter that the fight will take place in Italy, be supported by the foundations of both he and Zuckerberg, and be televised on Twitter and Meta.
Additionally, he tweeted that all fight money would be given to veterans.
The fight's date and location outside of Rome were not specified by Musk.
However, he claimed in a tweet that he spoke with the prime minister and minister of culture of Italy and that they collaborated to select "an epic location."
Musk said in a tweet from June that there was "some chance" he and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would square off inside Rome's ancient Colosseum.
Musk and Zuckerberg reportedly spoke with Italy's minister of culture in June, and insiders claimed that they would "love" to engage in combat at the Colosseum.
According to TMZ Sports, rumors of a mixed martial arts match between Musk and Zuckerberg first surfaced in June after it was revealed that Zuckerberg was developing a social media network to rival Musk's Twitter.
Later, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya tweeted a photo of himself and UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski training with Zuckerberg
