Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg Odds, and Picks

By ยท Updated 11 months ago
  • Musk boldly challenged Mark Zuckerberg to a cage match.
  • Zuckerberg will be making his return to the martial arts scene.
  • This fight will be the first time either of them compete at this level.

Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have both agreed to box each other in what would be the first fighting event between two billionaires. The details of the fight are still undecided, but it seems likely to happen.


Elon Musk is at it again with his eye-catching antics, this time challenging fellow multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg to a UFC-style cage match. The challenge may have been made as a joke at first, but it has quickly progressed to a real possibility after being accepted by Zuckerberg. Musk recently accepted an offer from UFC legend Georges St-Pierre to help him train. He’ll need it to overcome a 12-year age gap.

Mark Zuckerberg’s acceptance of Elon Musk’s challenge may have come as a surprise to many at first, but he quickly reminded both Musk and spectators that he is no average joe when it comes to martial arts. As a gold medal winner in Jiu Jitsu, Zuckerberg may have a crucial advantage, which is the main reason he is currently listed as a heavy favorite. That being said, he doesn’t have experience against a much taller foe.


I’m a bit surprised to see the odds fall so heavily in Mark Zuckerberg’s favor. At -450, he is considered to be a huge favorite. His age of 39, compared to 51-year-old Musk, is certainly an advantage in an athletic competition, but he also has disadvantages. Zuckerberg is just 5’7″ (170 cm), while Musk stands much taller at 6’1″ (185 cm). Height and size may be more crucial than experience here. I’d pick Musk to win it.
