It was reported last September that Mark Zuckerberg had taken up mixed martial arts (MMA) training and his trainer has described him as a “silent killer” in the ring.
The billionaire had posted a video on his official Instagram handle in which he is seen sparring with Khai Wu, a professional mixed martial artist and jiu-jitsu black belt. The Facebook co-founder described Mr Wu as his training partner at that time.
“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. You don’t know this nerd is a silent killer,” Mr Wu had said at that time about the tycoon.
