Elon Musk, a tech mogul, has changed his mind about challenging Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to a battle and is now suggesting a “noble” debate in its place.

Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of firms including Tesla, and SpaceX, along with the most recent addition, Twitter (which is now referred to as X), has reportedly backed off from his original challenge to Mark Zuckerberg for a cage match, according to Business Insider. Instead, Musk is currently proposing a “noble” discussion with the Facebook CEO.

Musk’s admission this week that he could require surgery before the envisaged cage bout led to a change of heart. “It could be necessary to get surgery before it’s time to fight. Will find out this week,” tweeted Musk.

A “cage match DEBATE” featuring the two billionaires was suggested by TED curator Chris Anderson, who strengthened the argument for a discussion as opposed to a fight. As Anderson put it on Twitter, “Here is an even better plan: a cage match DEBATE discussing ‘How to Create an Amazing Future.’ Sounds like a fantastic idea, too,” said Musk.

Musk said, “This is actually fighting as (I suppose) a noble sport. We also want to show our respect for those who have battled in the past for honorable causes, but we do it with humility.”

The proposed discussion is in line with a previous recommendation made by Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, who in June suggested that her son and Zuckerberg “fight using words only” rather than engage in physical conflict. “Only verbal combat. Three questions for both of you. The funniest responses win the battle. Who is on board?” Tweeted on June 23 by Maye Musk.

Given Zuckerberg’s MMA experience and medals from jiu-jitsu, Musk’s odds of defeating Zuckerberg in a physical battle were viewed as minimal. Musk acknowledged his chances and said, “If the battle is short, I’ll probably win. If the race is prolonged, endurance may be his winning factor.”
