Elon Musk has crossed paths with the MMA world on multiple occasions. The Billionaire has done it once again and this time around, he is challenging Russian President Vladimir Putin to an MMA Fight.
Earlier, Musk had noted his desire to take on Putin on Twitter and now, during his appearance on the Full Send Podcast, Musk revealed further details of the challenge and detailed his plan to defeat Putin.
"I challenged him [Putin] to single combat. MMA-style. Listen, it'll be a pay-per-view. It'll be an interesting question because he's good at martial arts and he's pretty buff. You've seen those pictures of him on a horse... I do have a bit of a weight advantage... I think I'm 30% bigger than him. I'm going to use a move called the walrus, where I just lie on you. You can't get away,” Musk noted (h/t Sportskeeda).
The Tesla supremo had also helped Ukraine during the Ukraine – Russia conflict by deploying thousands of Starlink Satellites above the country.
He had recently made headlines for his time on a yacht with UFC owner Ari Emanuel amidst his legal battle with Twitter. The 51-year-old is the founder, CEO and Chief Engineer at SpaceX and CEO and Product Architect at Tesla. He is also the founder of The Boring Company and X.com while also being the co-founder of Nueralink, OpenAi and Zip2. Musk has an estimated net worth of around $242 Billion as of July 2022.
Putin’s Martial Arts background
Vladimir Putin has an extensive background in Martial Arts and is trained in Judo, Sambo and Kyokushin. He was a KGB agent prior to his entry into politics and once credited martial arts for keeping him out of the streets as a teenager.
