Dana White confirms Elon Musk’s UFC Vegas 86 attendance.

Recently, in an interview, Dana White made a bold statement about Elon Musk’s attendance to watch UFC Vegas 86 on February 10th, featuring the headline bout between Jack Hermansson and Joe Pyfer in the middleweight division.

According to Sportskeeda, Dana White initially discussed the Super Bowl in a statement, expressing that it’s not the first time they’ve had a fight night on Super Bowl weekend. However, having the Powerslap on Friday, followed by the UFC Fight Night on Saturday, and concluding with the Super Bowl on Sunday, he emphasized that it would be a “no-brainer” as people are eagerly anticipating these three events.

He also mentioned that Elon Musk would be in Vegas and likely attend all these events. Dana White said, “I mean, Elon Musk is coming to the fight on Saturday; you know what I mean.” White gave a glimpse of the perfect package to those who came to visit Vegas, where his company’s power slap arena got all the tickets sold for the first time.

UFC fans convinced Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg to square off.

As soon as the fans got to know that Elon Musk would be at UFC fight night, they didn’t shy away from making their demands. According to Yardbarker, Fans started to ask if the main event could be replaced with Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg. One of the fans asked if they could get Mark Zuckerberg just for the staredown between both successful businessmen.

However the speculations were cut short when Mark Zuckerberg revealed that Elon Musk isn’t interested in this charity match-up, He explained that there was a real date offered to him, but he didn’t answer, despite Dana White being involved all over to make this fight official.

With a still-open offer, Mark Zuckerberg said, “If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise, it’s time to move on. I’m going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously.”

The fight between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk was rumored last year, but all this fury started when Elon Musk acquired Twitter in October 2022. After establishing ‘X’, the fans started to get the rumors until Mark came forward with a proposal. At that time, Dana White and many UFC officials chose to give their input in this fight.

Will fans get to see their rumors turn into reality for Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg?
