In a surprising turn of events, tech moguls Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have engaged in a public challenge. They have agreed to settle their rivalry through a cage match.

Cage fighting, a full-contact sport that demands a combination of different fighting techniques within a confined space. While any body type can participate, certain fitness regimes and diets can provide an advantage in this arena.


As health and fitness experts, Total Shape dissects their personal diets and fitness routines. They try to shed light on who would likely emerge victorious in this clash of billionaires.



The Zuck in a cage match:

Mark Zuckerberg, standing at 5’7″ and weighing around 154 pounds, has showcased his martial arts skills. He has won medals in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. His recent participation in the ‘Murph Challenge’—completing a mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 press-ups, and 300 squats, followed by another mile, while wearing a 9kg weighted vest—displayed his endurance and determination. Zuckerberg’s diet is leaning towards vegetarianism. Zuckerberg has a preference for grilled chicken as a high-protein option.

Elon in a fight:

On the other hand, Elon Musk, 5’11” and weighing approximately 178 pounds, possesses a larger and more robust physique compared to the smaller-framed Zuckerberg. Musk has acknowledged the challenges of staying lean as he ages. Musk does have a personal trainer. However, he mostly engages in weightlifting on his own. Although not a fan of running, Musk has explored various martial arts disciplines and introduced his children to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from a young age. His diet is unconventional. He often opts for tasty treats like octopus, ice cream, oatmeal biscuits, and donuts.

Considering these factors, Total Shape‘s spokesperson suggests that Zuckerberg’s agility, endurance, and skill in mixed martial arts would give him the upper hand. With a protein-rich diet and a leaner physique resulting from high-endurance activities, he would likely prevail. However, Musk’s strength, broader build, and extra height could pose a challenge for Zuckerberg, particularly if he can prevent Zuckerberg from controlling the fight early on.

Ultimately, success in MMA relies on a combination of strength, technique, and skill. While strength is crucial, proficiency in striking, grappling, and ground fighting plays a significant role.
