- Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is really into MMA style fighting these days.
- It completely tore him apart. And he even won a few matches.
- A new report says he was knocked out once. He denies that!
On Friday morning, The New York Times learned that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg was recently knocked out in a jiu-jitsu match.
But wait !
Shredded Zuck and his trainer say he actually wasn’t snoring after a choke hold left him passed out. No! They were grunts of effort!
Here’s a clarifying tweet from Times reporter Joe Bernstein.
UPDATE: After posting our story, I heard from both Mark Zuckerberg and his Brazilian jujitsu coach. They both insisted Mr. Zuckerberg had *not* passed out, and the coach said the referee mistook his straining grunts for snoring: https://t.co/ xicWVdSfke

Zuck is shredded now, and one sport he particularly enjoys is Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Here’s what it looks like when this pursuit goes well for him.

Personally, Zuck’s hobby I’m more likely to take up is one where he rides a futuristic flying surfboard with reasonable amounts of sunscreen all over his face.
But it’s you, Meta boss!
