Do you recall how Elon Musk challenged Vladamir Putin to a “single combat” bout back in March? Maybe Musk versus Mark Zuckerberg would have been a better billionaire match-up.
The 38-year-old CEO of Meta Platforms announced on Facebook on Sunday that he has been practicing MMA (mixed martial arts) with Taiwanese fighter Khai Wu. It appears like Zuckerberg has been honing his techniques.
The busy CEO recently appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast, where he revealed that instead of continuing to run for fitness, he had switched to MMA because it required his complete attention.
Zuckerberg told Rogan, “I used to run a lot, but the problem with jogging is you can think a lot.
“MMA is the perfect thing because if you stop paying attention for one second, you’re going to end up on the bottom,” the CEO added. “What’s a thing that’s both very engaging physically, but also intellectually, where you can’t afford to focus on something else?”
Rogan, a UFC analyst and self-described martial artist, appears to be impressed by Zuckerberg’s abilities, writing on the post, “This is awesome! I’m overjoyed to notice this.
“Training seems solid as well!
