Mark Zuckerberg shows off MMA skills in new training video

Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg is seen in a recent video training with a mixed martial arts fighter Khai Wu.

The video has been met with surprise from both MMA fans and non-MMA fans alike.

In the video, Mark Zuckerberg is in a pretty intense training session applying various martial arts techniques including takedowns, and head kicks. He even manages to secure an armbar.

Many UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fighters like Conor McGregor and Alex Volanovski have posted words of praise in the comments of that video.

In the past, Zuckerberg has expressed that he is an MMA fan and trains occasionally. There’s no doubt about that after seeing this video.

It would be a stretch to say that the Facebook founder will be starting an MMA career soon, but who knows? He may be involved in the fight business in different ways.

UFC, the leading MMA organization, has been in existence for about 28 years and continues to be a symbol for mixed martial arts across the globe.
