MMA trainer responds to Elon Musk’s cage fight challenge against Johnny Depp


MMA trainer John Kavanagh recently responded to Elon Musk’s shocking cage fight challenge against Johnny Depp.

On his Twitter account, Kavanagh told Musk that if he needs to prepare for his showdown against Johnny Depp, he would gladly help him out.

According to Cinema Blend, Kavanagh can be of great help to Musk if he decides to pursue a cage fight against the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. After all, Kavanagh has trained fighters such as Conor McGregor, Makwan Amirkhani, and Gunnar Nelson.

Kavanagh also won the 2017 World MMA Award for Coach of the Year. And he is currently running the Straight Blast Gym in Ireland.

Following his post, one fan asked Kavanagh why he’s trying to involve himself in Musk and Depp’s feud. He said that he’s hoping to score a Tesla if Musk wins against the actor.

Elon Musk challenges Johnny Depp to a cage fight

Earlier this week, Musk challenged Depp to a cage fight after the actor accused him of having an affair with Amber Heard. The Edward Scissorhands actor also previously claimed that Musk had a threesome with Heard and Cara Delevingne.

“I definitely was not having an affair with Amber while she was married to Johnny, this is totally false. We did not have the threesome, you know. So, I think these things are generally more salacious than they are. If Johnny wants a cage fight, just let me know,” he said.

During a previous statement, Musk encouraged Depp to bury the hatchet with his ex-wife. However, Depp didn’t listen.

Johnny, Amber Heard face each other in court

Throughout the past three weeks, he and Heard faced each other in court while they give accounts to disprove and prove The Sun’s wife-beater claims.

According to Heard, Depp physically abused her on at least 14 occasions. But Depp said that it was his ex-wife that abused him.

Heard also claimed that Depp accused her of having an affair with almost all her male co-stars. And The Rum Diary actress also said that Depp used to give some of her male co-stars’ derogatory nicknames.

After giving her accounts in court, Heard stepped out to release her final statement on Depp’s libel case against The Sun. The actress said that she didn’t want to be there because she’s not the one that filed the lawsuit against her ex-husband. Heard also said that she wants to move on with her life.

The court’s ruling won’t be released anytime soon. As such, Johnny Depp, Heard, and The Sun need to wait for a few months before they know whose accounts were favored in court.
