Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. This injury occurred during his intense training for a competitive MMA bout scheduled for the upcoming year.
Nobody on Earth looks forward to having an ACL tear, but Mark Zuckerberg is approaching it with a touch of humor.
He playfully resurrected the iconic ‘record scratch … freeze frame … Yup, that’s me’ meme. According to KnowYourMeme, this meme template made its debut on the internet on June 13th, 2015.
Zuckerberg shared a Reels montage showcasing his MMA training, accompanied by the caption: “Recovery is going well so far. But for those wondering how I got here…”
This post garnered an outpouring of well-wishes for a swift recovery from his ACL surgery.
UFC’s Mike Davis remarked, “MMA is the hardest yet funnest life.”
FullsendMMA stated, “Zuck is a certified MMA bro.”
The @Wealth account commented: “They need to add Zuck to UFC.” This was a sentiment echoed by numerous others. Right now, everyone is rooting for Mark and wants to see him win an octagon at some time.
It’s evident that Mark Zuckerberg has invested significant effort into his MMA journey. The world got a glimpse of his commitment back in July when he shared a photo of himself on Instagram alongside Alexander Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya.
Furthermore, Mark’s latest reels showcase his unwavering dedication, with footage capturing his relentless pursuit of excellence throughout the summer and into the fall. This enthusiasm continued until a recent injury necessitated ACL surgery.
Before setting his sights on a competitive MMA bout, Mark Zuckerberg was in discussions for a showdown with Elon Musk. Ultimately, it appeared that Musk used this opportunity to maintain his media presence while Zuckerberg honed his skills alongside some of the world’s most elite MMA stars.
Zuckerberg later clarified that he only aspires to compete with individuals who approach the sport with utmost seriousness. It seems like Elon Musk did not fit that criterion.
