It is tremendous spectacular for a man who has solely been coaching for a brief period of time. In actual fact, Zuckerberg instructed Joe Rogan final yr that he started practising martial arts in the course of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Regardless of Mark successful most of his matches, the day wasn’t with out controversy. Throughout one combat, Zuckerberg turned visibly upset with a ref. It is unclear why Zuck was upset, however after a brief, however quite heated convo with the official and his opponent, everybody shook fingers.
However, all in all … Zuck was superior.
And, a number of the largest stars in MMA congratulated him on the medals … with guys like Israel Adesanya, Brandon Moreno, and Alex Volkanovski heaping reward on the billionaire.
“Wow congrats 👏👏,” Moreno, the UFC flyweight champ wrote.
Volk, the UFC featherweight champ commented … “Legend! Love the shorts mate”
“When the #1 pound-for-pound fighter on the planet provides you shorts, you put on them” … Zuckerberg responded to Alex.
Anyone name Dana White … let’s get this man a contract!
