Mark Zuckerbergthe founder and CEO of the Meta platform, went under the knife this week after injuring his knee while training in mixed martial arts (MMA).
according to post The 39-year-old Meta CEO posted on Instagram of himself in a hospital bed, tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) while sparring in preparation for a competitive MMA fight early next year. This is likely a reference to Zuckerberg’s much-anticipated fight with another big name in the tech world, Elon Musk Is.
June 2023 (end of June 1402), 51-year-old Elon Musk and the owner of companies such as Tesla and X (formerly Twitter) and SpaceX invited Mark Zuckerberg to fight in the cage. This happened when Meta created the TextTrades platform to compete with X. Musk considers Trades to be a complete copy of his social network.
The story of Zuckerberg and MMA training dates back to the time of the Corona epidemic. These light workouts gradually gave way to more intense workouts in the octagonal ring built in his backyard.
Last month, a selfie posted of Zuckerberg showed him with two bruised eyes and a bloody nose after a slightly out-of-control training session.
An anterior cruciate ligament tear, common among athletes, occurs when the ligament that connects the femur to the lower leg is torn. Recovery after cruciate ligament surgery usually lasts between 6 and 9 days.
However, it is unlikely that the self-made American billionaire will back down from a cage fight with Musk so easily. He previously said about learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that you shouldn’t be arrogant and you should be ready to take a lot of beating.
Until Mark Zuckerberg fully recovers and returns to gym training for an MMA fight, Meta will fully protect him at a cost of $14 million per year.
