Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have the kind of money that allows them to do whatever they want. If they don’t want to do something but want to see it done, they can easily afford to pay someone to do it for them. Evidently, fighting each other is something they do want to do, and with a match apparently on, DraftKings is projecting Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg cage fight odds.

Let’s take a look at the projected odds from DraftKings Director of Race & Sports Operations, Johnny Avello.

According to the internet, the soon-to-be 52-year-old Musk is about 6-foot-1.5. He has confessed to struggling with his weight and is usually somewhere between “too thin” and “slightly fat”. As for an actual number, most projections are in the mid-180s.

Despite having a size advantage, Musk would be a betting underdog to the 5-foot-7, 154-pound Zuckerberg. Avello explained his rationale for making the Facebook founder the favorite (via DraftKings):

Zuckerberg is 12 years younger and has taken part in an intensive challenge in which he ran a mile, completed 100 pull-ups, 200 press-ups and 300 squats, before running a further mile, all while wearing a 9kg weighted vest. He also has been training in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Musk also dabbles in taekwondo, karate, judo & jiu-jitsu.”

The important question is, of course, can either of them fight?

It is easy to find proof that Zuckerberg may be able to hold his own. According to social media, he won a tournament not too long ago:

Proof of any fighting skills Musk may possess is not as easy to locate, but he has shared what his go-to “move” is.

What is even funnier than that clip is how this whole mess came about.

Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg Cage Match: The Origin Story

It began when Musk responded to someone on Twitter who suggested he should be careful talking about Zuckerberg because the Facebooker knows jiu-jitsu:

That’s when things got interesting. Zuckerberg heard about the challenge and posted his response in an Instagram story that this Twitter user shared:

To which Musk responded with another tweet that simply said: Vegas Octagon.

Does this mean the fight is going to happen? Who knows, but UFC president Dana White told TMZ that he has spoken with Musk and Zuckerberg “and both are absolutely dead serious about this.”

Should it go down, “this would be the biggest fight ever in the history of the world, bigger than anything that’s ever been done,” White said. “It would break all pay-per-view records. These guys would raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charity. You don’t have to be a fight fan to be interested in this fight. Everyone would want to see it.”

To put the event’s potential in perspective, Floyd Mayweather vs. Connor McGregor is the top-grossing PPV fight of all time with $600 million in revenue on 4.3 million buys.

“I think it triples that,” White predicted.

White also said that according to Station Casinos co-owner and former UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, the Station’s sportsbook in Las Vegas is dealing odds on the fight.

These guys may be desperate for something new and may take inspiration from another business tycoon in an infamous sitcom episode that needed a new challenge.
