Mark Zuckerberg is undoubtedly a fascinating figure in the eyes of Joe Rogan, especially when it comes to the prospect of backing up his mouth with his skills. Why? Because Zuckerberg is not just the CEO of Facebook’s parent company, Meta; he’s also a proficient Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. And for someone like Joe Rogan, a Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast himself, this makes Zuckerberg a compelling character.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, made his affinity for mixed martial arts known in 2022 when he attended a live UFC event. He didn’t stop at being a spectator; he shared videos of his sparring sessions and showcased his physical condition. Clearly, Zuckerberg’s passion for competition extends beyond the digital realm.
During an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the popular UFC commentator and podcaster, Joe Rogan, couldn’t help but express his amazement at Zuckerberg’s venture into martial arts.
“Look at Zuckerberg strangling b****es. I think that’s amazing. I love when people just, he doesn’t have to do anything. He’s one of the richest people on Earth and he just takes a chance, tries to get good at this thing, goes and competes in this thing. We should all celebrate that. That’s amazing.”
Rogan’s praise centered around Zuckerberg’s victory in a Jiu-Jitsu tournament in Redwood, California, where he secured both a gold and silver medal simultaneously. Witnessing a tech magnate like Zuckerberg embrace an entirely new skill set was nothing short of astonishing.
Mark Zuckerberg has revealed a daily calorie intake of around 4,000 calories to support his fitness routine, which includes jujitsu, MMA sessions, strength training, and mobility work.
Zuckerberg justifies his high-calorie meals by stating that his fitness program demands such intake, aligning with the practice of elite athletes.
Zuckerberg aims to cultivate a public image of toughness, commitment to fitness, and approachability. In fact Dana White recently confirmed that Zuckerberg is still interested in being featured on the UFC 300 card in some manner.
