The recipient: 7th-degree Aikido black belt and movie star Steven Seagal.

Foreman, the two-time boxing heavyweight champion, tweeted a photo of Seagal with an official seemingly unprovoked challenge on Tuesday, Oct. 3.

Seagal hasn't yet responded to Foreman's offer.

Foreman has remained consistent in his reasoning for the fight challenge on social media and has not alluded to any of Seagal's comments as motivation.

With no rhyme or reason, the brains behind the George Foreman Grill took to Twitter to ask Seagal to a fight with "no weapons". 10 rounds in Vegas.

"Big George" added that he's "put this out there for a while" and he's "not trolling", while also clarifying it would be strictly hand to hand, "no weapons". It's one of the most famous boxing matches of all time and a precursor to today's massive pay-per-view match-ups.

Seagal became a Russian citizen previous year and is know for being besties with Putin.

But he gave no indication as to why he wanted to fight Seagal, other than that he felt he was a worthy opponent with his martial arts background.

Seagal, a Michigan-born actor who became a Russian citizen in 2016, last week called the pregame protests "outrageous", "a joke" and "disgusting".

Seagal, meanwhile, is best known for his roles in Above The Law, Under Siege and The Patriot.
