Mark Zuckerberg is indeed in attendance for Saturday’s UFC event at the Las Vegas Apex
The UFC is hosting Saturday’s card of fights at the Apex in Las Vegas but there’s a catch. No media or fans are allowed in for UFC Vegas 61 and up until the event actually happened, rumors were swirling about a Metaverse connection with Mark Zuckerberg being involved.
Heck, earlier in the week Dana White shot down a rumor that Zuckerberg rented out the entire space for himself and his wife. But while that may not be the case, Zuckerberg was invited to the event as he was spotted with his wife cage-side for the matches on Saturday:
Mark Zuckerberg just posted this photo on Instagram with the caption: "Excited to see Mackenzie Dern fight tonight in Vegas. Thanks Dana White for inviting us!"
Maybe Dana called "total bullshit" that Zuck rented the Apex out earlier this week because he was invited? pic.twitter.com/dkmx6oR3nF

Rumors have swirled about UFC’s involvement with Meta and it’s not something that White would come out and tell the media leading up to this event. But it truly was the UFC’s worst kept secret all week long and now the questions will continue to get bigger about the involvement with Meta.
At least Mark Zuckerberg looked like he had a great time…
