Elon Musk warned he'd show up at rival Mark Zuckerberg's house to fight him.
The X (formerly Twitter) boss took to the social network yesterday (August 14) claiming a new bid to make their long-awaited cage fight a reality by showing up at the Meta man's Palo Alto home in a self-driving Tesla.
"Knock, knock… challenge accepted… open the door @finkd," he said.

"For the Tesla FSD test drive in Palo Alto tonight, I will ask the car to drive to @finkd’s house.
"If we get lucky and Zuck my [tongue emoji] actually answers the door, the fight is on!"
It is unclear whether Musk actually made the journey to the California tech hotspot last night – but even if he had it wouldn't have mattered, as the Facebook founder wasn't home.
A spokesperson for the tech billionaire told the Verge: "Mark is traveling right now and isn’t in Palo Alto.
"Also, Mark takes this sport seriously and isn’t going to fight someone who randomly shows up at his house."
Elon Musk auctions off everything Twitter-related from company's office
The billionaire rivals have been in talks for a 'Zuck v Musk' cage fight since June, but so far the sparring has remained online.
Zuckerberg even accused the Tesla tycoon of "not being serious" about the skirmish after he proposed a fight date – August 26 – but didn't get a response.
Taking to his new social network Threads on Sunday (August 13), he wrote: "I think we can all agree Elon isn't serious and it's time to move on.
"I offered a real date."
Zuckerberg added the Tesla tycoon "knows how to reach" him if he ever decides to commit.
"If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me," he added.
"Otherwise, time to move on. I'm going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously."
Musk was previously snapped training with podcaster Lex Fridman – who holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu – and UFC star Georges St-Pierre.
Posting a photo of the trio together, Fridman wrote: "Had a great training session with Elon Musk, Georges St-Pierre, and John Danaher last night, everything about this was epic!"
Musk replied: "Really fun! The obvious conclusion is that I need a *lot* more training."
And Zuckerberg isn't keen to be left behind. He recently earned a blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu following weeks of intense training and took to Instagram to show off the achievement.
"Honoured to be promoted to compete at blue belt for Guerrilla San Jose team," he said.
"You’re a great coach and I’ve learned so much about fighting and life from training with you," he added addressing his coach, Dave Camarillo, who boasts a "5th degree black belt" according to LADBible.
