Elon Musk Looks Like Mess In UFC Training Photos

Twitter owner Elon Musk’s sparring partner recently shared photos of their “impromptu training session” on Twitter Tuesday evening as the platform’s executive prepares for his cage match with Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg.



“I did an impromptu training session with Elon Musk for a few hours yesterday,” tweeted Lex Fridman, a scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Fridman shared two photos from the session. One appears to show the two of them grappling with Musk in side control attempting to isolate Fridman’s right arm. The other appears to show Musk completing a hip toss on the smaller Fridman.

“I’m extremely impressed with his strength, power, and skill, on the feet and on the ground,” Fridman said, describing their session as “epic.” He continued: “It’s really inspiring to see Elon and Mark doing martial arts, but I think the world is served far better if they train martial arts but not fight in the cage.”

The supportive Fridman added: “I’m there for them, no matter what.”

“That was fun!” Musk commented on the photos.

It was noted that the training session comes ahead of an unscheduled bout between Zuckerberg and Musk, who also agreed to begin training with UFC Hall of Famer George St-Pierre to prepare for the contest.

“I’m a huge fan of yours and it would be an absolute honor to help you and be your training partner for the challenge against Zuckerberg,” tweeted GSP, who is widely considered to be one of the best all-time fighters in the UFC franchise.

“Ok, let’s do it,” Musk responded.

“Did a practice round tonight with Lex Fridman,” he added about an hour later.

Musk, who owns also SpaceX, previously admitted to not regularly working out, although he tweeted Friday that he previously trained in “judo, Kyokushin (full contact) & no rules streetfighting.”

Zuckerberg has trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a self-defense martial art, for more than a year and won an amateur tournament.
