Mark Zuckerberg is known for being one of the most perplexing figures in the tech world. He shocked the world when he announced that Facebook is going through a massive rebranding. That being said, he recently fought a UFC Champion in the virtual battleground.

Mark Zuckerberg boasts impressive mixed martial arts abilities both within the virtual realm of the Metaverse and in the physical world. In fact, Zuckerberg showed off his MMA skills in virtual reality.

The 38-year-old tech entrepreneur, Mark Zuckerberg, engaged in a virtual showdown with UFC Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski at Meta HQ utilizing cutting-edge motion capture technology.

“What do you think of my gym?, Mark asks in the reel. “It looks incredible!,” Alex replies.


In an interview with Joe Rogan last year, Mark talked about training in mixed martial arts and jiu-jitsu. “It really is the best sport. The question isn’t, ‘how did I get into it?’ The question is, ‘how did I not find out about this until now?,” he said.

On Saturday, February 12, Alexander Volkanovski will clash with reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Islam Makhachev at UFC 284, marking a highly anticipated match-up. We’ll have to see how the fight will turn out.
