"You'd never expect these guys to be able to take you down. Next thing you know, they're attacking you with these extremely technical moves."

A who’s who of the fight world were quick to dive into Zuck’s comments, including UFC champs Brandon Moreno, Alex Volkanovski and Izzy Adesanya, although the fight itself seemed to flush Zuckerberg, shot five revealing the outline of a circumcised head of unusual weight and with a perfect bevelled rim.

Super fit. Like … strong, strong strong. Physically strong.”
