“MMA is like perfection,” Zuckerberg said recently while appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast

Zuckerberg recently appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast and revealed his love for mixed martial arts to Rogan.

“For example, I really enjoy watching UFC, but I also enjoy exercising,” Zuckerberg said on the podcast.

He explained that fighting is “really important” to him and helps him maintain his “energy levels and focus.”

“It’s because I have a connection to it,” he continued. “Since COVID I’ve been super into surfing and foiling and then really into MMA. I know a lot of people who do.’

“MMA is like perfection,” he continued. “Cause it’s like you stop paying attention for a second that you land on the ground.”

Former two-part UFC champion Conor McGregor also commented on the post, writing, “Yo!!! Damn great Mark!’

‘Can I unlock these abilities in the metaverse?’ Online content creator Adam the Creator said, while the official UFC account said he has “nice combos”.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner Bernardo Faria commented, “Amazing!!! Half armor, arm bars, triangle! Super cool!’

Zuckerberg met UFC President Dana White for dinner in late June, and White has expressed knowledge of Zuckerberg’s love of the sport, though it’s unclear if they met for professional endeavors.

Zuckerberg had to change and update his new “Metaverse” avatar after taking heat from the internet

Meta’s CEO has recently been criticized for the quality of Meta’s new virtual reality projects, with some pointing out that it looks poor quality.

Sharing his original avatar in front of an animated Eiffel Tower, he was roundly derided by the internet, with many comparing him to the graphics of now decades-old Nintendo games.

Zuckerberg has since shared an updated version, admitting that the Metaverse graphics shown were rudimentary.

As one Twitter user put it, “He spent billions making the old Nintendo Wii level art.”

It wasn’t just random people on the internet, like New York Times Tech columnist Kevin Roose called the graphics “worse than a 2008 Wii game.”
