One week after a photo of Twitter CEO Elon Musk with former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre went viral, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg outdid him.
On Tuesday, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya shared a photo of himself, UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, and an extremely shredded Zuckerberg after a workout with the two City Kickboxing standouts.

“It was an honor to train with you guys!” Zuckerberg commented on the post via Instagram.
Adesanya and Volkanovski are just two of many UFC fighters (including heavyweight champion Jon Jones) who have offered to assist Zuckerberg train for a future megafight with Musk. However, Adesanya’s Instagram story showed Zuckerberg wakeboarding while being dragged by a boat during his trip to Lake Tahoe.
Musk, on the other hand, has trained with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt Lex Fridman, who tweeted a photo of himself, Musk, St. Pierre, and renowned MMA instructor John Danaher, who has coached several former champions including St. Pierre, Chris Weidman, and Jake Shields.
Great training session with 3 men that I really admire.

“Really fun!” Musk tweeted in response to Fridman’s photo. “The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training.”
Former UFC welterweight champion Jorge Masvidal has also offered to help Musk prepare for his fight with Zuckerberg.
