Georges St-Pierre opposes Musk vs Zuckerberg after training with Musk for one reason

Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre recently shared his thoughts on the potential matchup between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

The news of Elon Musk’s serious interest in facing off against Mark Zuckerberg in the cage spread like wildfire after he was spotted training in martial arts. The Tesla CEO enlisted the help of legendary coach John Danaher, podcaster Lex Fridman, and combat sports icon GSP to hone his skills.

While many combat sports fans are excited about the Musk-Zuckerberg matchup, Georges St-Pierre has expressed his reservations about it.

In an interview with MMA journalist Aaron Bronsteter at a UFC 290 event, St-Pierre conveyed his opposition to seeing the two tech billionaires step into the cage. Despite acknowledging Musk’s impressive strength and judo background, St-Pierre emphasized his belief that Musk’s focus should remain on the groundbreaking work he does.

He said; “I don’t know if this fight’s going to happen… However, there’s a part of me that hopes this thing gets resolved in a different way… Most of his time is dedicated to working on things that change the fate of humanity.”

St-Pierre further elaborated on his viewpoint: “If he decides to get himself ready for something like this, that means he’s going to have to take time out of his schedule to do it. I believe that the things that he works on now are more important than fighting in the cage.”


Georges St-Pierre is set to make his highly anticipated return to mixed martial arts. St-Pierre is scheduled to compete in a grappling-only event at the UFC Fight Pass Invitational in December.

His last bout was against Michael Bisping at UFC 217 in 2017, where he won the match via third-round submission to claim the middleweight title.

Additionally, GSP became the fourth combatant in UFC history to hold multiple divisional titles. With an impressive professional record of 26-2, St-Pierre retired as a two-division champion.
