Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Meta, has been spotted training with Israel Adesanya, the UFC middleweight champion.

In a joint post on Instagram, Zuckerberg and Adesanya shared images of themselves alongside Alexander Volkanovski, UFC featherweight champion, in the gymnasium.

In the pictures, the trio are bare-chested and geared for a contest, with Zuckerberg looking sweat-drenched.

The post was captioned: “No Fugazi with Mark. This is serious business!”.

In the comment section, the Meta CEO said, “It was an honour to train with you guys!”.

The development comes amid a constant teaser of a potential mixed martial art (MMA) bout between Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla Inc.

In June, Musk had jokingly challenged Zuckerberg to a “cage match” — a proposed contest to which the Meta CEO replied, “send me location”.

The feud between the two billionaires took a new twist a few weeks later when Zuckerberg launched Threads, a new text-based social media platform to rival Musk’s Twitter.

The launch came days after Musk announced that a temporary limit had been imposed on the number of posts users can read daily on Twitter.

In response, Twitter threatened Zuckerberg with a lawsuit over “the unlawful misappropriation” of its trade secrets.
