Elon Musk is going all in. Either that or the embattled CEO - who, we noted last week, has once again drawn the ire of the Securities and Exchange Commission and is desperately trying to change the subject. 

In a move we're sure was not approved by Tesla's Twitter sitter (or likely anyone else, for that matter), Musk - who's been providing Ukraine with internet via SpaceX Starlink stations took to Twitter Monday morning to challenge Vladimir Putin to a fight.

"I hereby challenge Владимир Путин to single combat," Musk wrote, writing Vladimir Putin in Russian. "Stakes are Україна [Ukraine]," he wrote. 

Single combat is widely known as a "duel between two single warriors which takes place in the context of a battle between two armies," per Wikipedia.

"If Putin could so easily humiliate the west, then he would accept the challenge," Musk wrote in a follow up Tweet, addressing the former KGB agent and Judo black belt. 

He also admitted that he "did manage to throw the world champion sumo wrestler," but it screwed up his back for 7 years.

Who knows what is going through the mind of the world's richest man. He spent the evening posting memes about woke culture and the conflict overseas, including this meme taking jabs at Netflix "waiting for the war to end" so they can "make a movie about a black Ukraine guy falls (sic) in love with a transgender Russian soldier". 

Earlier in the evening, Musk also posted this "woke" meme:
