After X owner Elon Musk claimed in a post last Sunday that his cage match with Mark Zuckerberg would be streamed on his app, the Meta CEO quickly responded by questioning the reliability of Musk's platform in raising charity.

Currently, X doesn't possess any built-in fundraising feature, while Meta's Facebook and Instagram have long integrated them.

Minutes before the post, Musk also shared that he had been training for the fight by bringing his weights to work due to a lack of time to work out.

Zuckerberg immediately responded via Threads.

"I suggested Aug 26 when he first challenged, but he hasn't confirmed. Not holding my breath," he explained. "I love this sport and will continue competing with people who train no matter what happens here."

Talks of a Musk-Zuck cage fight started when the Space X CEO responded to a tweet last June saying that he was "up for a cage match" if the Facebook creator was. 

Zuckerberg was quick to respond to the taunt, asking Musk in an Instagram story to "send location." 

The tension between the two social media moguls first grew significantly when Meta launched its new social media platform Threads amid the backlash X (then, Twitter) received for implementing a rate limit on the amount of posts users can see.
