The Musk vs Zuck fight might take place at the Roman Colosseum. Seriously.

"The most entertaining outcome is the most likely." I can't remember where I heard that...

Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have been going back and forth online about the possibility of an MMA-style cage match between the two gazillionaire tech gurus. Dana White confirmed it was a real possibility and both sides seem to be all in ... and now Italy has entered the chat.

No, this is not a joke.

From TMZ:

This will blow your mind -- an official from the government of Italy contacted Mark Zuckerberg about staging a UFC fight against Elon Musk at the most legendary battleground in the world ... Rome's Colosseum ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Now, this is supposedly from a person with first-hand information about the fight.

However, sadly, Italy is disputing the report:

The Ministry of Culture's Office issued a statement saying, "There has been no formal contact from the ministry nor any written document, even if the news appears tasty it is unfounded." Sources with direct knowledge confirm again ... the Ministry first reached out to Mark Zuckerberg, then the request was forwarded to Dana White, and there was a follow-up and a call was set for next week. The Ministry added, "If Zuckerberg and Musk wanted to perform in the Colosseum they would have to make a non-violent challenge." Our sources are scoffing at this, saying the Ministry reached out BECAUSE of the fight challenge.

That's why Elon coyly mentioned the Colosseum in a tweet last night.

Okay, so nothing official... yet. I understand wanting to keep things under wraps until a deal is made.

I don't know what to think here except that I really, really, really hope this happens. And I think the combined forces of Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and Dana White can almost certainly get it done.

How epic would that be?
