Mark Zuckerberg is now obsessed with MMA, “Rolling and wrestling with friends”

Famous t-ball and surfing star Mark Zuckerberg has been revealed at MMA/ivermectin/etc. Guy Joe Rogan that he recently got into mixed martial arts because he can’t spend enough time on his ranch in Hawaii surfing anymore.

In a wide conversation in which Zuckerberg suggested that we would soon be bringing VR headsets to cafes, playing poker with “hologram cards” and turning various physical objects into holograms, Zuckerberg revealed that he recently believed that mixed martial arts is “the best sport,” and that he’s now a big fan of “rolling and wrestling with friends” when he’s not busy surfing 15-foot waves on his hydrofoil in Hawaii.

“I really like watching the UFC for example, but I also like playing sports. It’s because I have a connection with it,” Zuckerberg said. “Since COVID, I’ve become great in the surfing and foiling, then really into MMA. I know many people who do. There’s actually this really interesting connection between people who surf and do jiu-jitsu.

Zuckerberg said he trained with famed jiu-jitsu player Dave Camarillo, who among his many other accomplishments trained UFC legends like Daniel Cormier and Cain Velasquez, who are considered the fighters deadliest unarmed in human history, as well as celebrities like Tim Ferriss.

“A bunch of guys that I do that with, they kind of have gyms in Kauai and I, basically, got a bunch of recommendations, referred them from a bunch of people I know, and I trained with this guy Dave Camarillo— Guerilla Jiu Jitsu, the crazy thing is, it really is the best sport.”

Zuckerberg, whose company has been accused of enabling the genocide in Myanmar because it didn’t bother to hire Burmese-speaking moderators, for example, added that one of the biggest regrets of his life is competing on the high school fencing team rather than wrestling.

“The question isn’t how I got into it, it’s how I didn’t know until now?” Zuckerberg told Rogan. “Since, like, the very first session I did, like, five minutes in — where has it been all my life? My mom made me play three varsity sports and my life took a bad turn. turning point when I chose to fencing competitively instead of wrestling in high school or something. There’s something so primitive about it, I don’t know. Since then, I just presented a group of my friends – we train together, and we love, wrestle together, and there’s a certain intensity that I like.

“I also think wrestling with friends is great,” he added.

Wrestling is an incredibly dangerous sport, with traumatic brain injury being one of the major risks. One study found it causes more concussions than any other NCAA sport. Zuckerberg has previously mentioned taking “head kicks” while riding monster waves.

Zuckerberg said MMA replaced surfing and hydrofoiling for him when he couldn’t be on his Hawaiian ranch, which he got in part by suing native Hawaiians who had a claim to the land. While he mentioned sparring wrestling and jiu-jitsu, two of the three main building blocks of MMA, in the interview, he didn’t mention whether he embraced striking discipline.

“My parents pushed me really hard, they said, you’re going to do really well in school and you’re going to be on three college sports teams. I found especially since the company evolved and became more stressful [doing extremely cool sports] has become more important. My kind of day is – you wake up in the morning, look at my phone, get a million messages of stuff coming in, it’s usually not good. Well, people like to save the right things to say to me in person, so it’s like, what’s going on in the world, I have to be careful that day. It’s like, almost every day, you wake up and it’s like you’re punched in the stomach. And it’s like, ‘OK, well fuck, now I have to reset myself and be productive, and not be stressed about it.’ So basically I go, read, take the information, then do something physical for an hour or two and reset. Over time I discovered that it wasn’t just – I used to run a lot, but the problem with running is that you can think a lot while you’re running, so I, mostly over the past few years I’ve gotten into things that require total concentration. So at the start of COVID, I mentioned that I spent a lot of time in Kauai, our family has a ranch there, and like, I spent a lot of time foiling and surfing. If you’re foiling or surfing and you’re on a wave, you have to be careful all the time or you’ll fall and maybe get held up, and that’s not a great experience. I don’t know if you surf.

It requires total commitment all the time, and then that’s kind of how I got into MMA too, now I don’t spend as much time in Kauai because things are speeding up and I’m a lot more in the office, so, it’s like, okay, there’s not that many foils in Palo Alto? What’s one thing that’s both physically and intellectually super engaging that you can’t afford to focus on anything else? And I think to a certain extent, MMA is the perfect thing. You stop paying attention for a second and you’ll end up at the bottom. So, I just found out that it’s really important to me, in terms of what I do and my ability to maintain my energy level, to stay focused. After an hour or two of training or riding or wrestling with friends or training with different people, it’s like you’re ready to solve all the problems of the day, I fully addressed all the various news of the day ahead and we’re just good to go.

Zuckerberg added that MMA now helps guide his entire worldview, which is perhaps notable for the half of humanity that uses one of his rigs and for whom he is the ultimate arbiter: “There are a lot of good parallels for the philosophy of life and like foiling and surfing, jiu-jitsu, MMA, I think it kind of teaches you the flow and the momentum of things.”

Asked by Motherboard why Zuckerberg decided to do a podcast with a guy who had to apologize for repeatedly saying the n-word, had transphobic authors, repeatedly spread COVID misinformation, etc. , a Facebook spokesperson declined to comment on the matter. Joe Rogan’s guest on Friday was COVID troll Alex Berenson, who was temporarily banned from Twitter for his COVID tweets.
