This was the 3rd case where I couldn’t progress in the story because the required action is not available.
In mission Hammerlocked I should talk to Brick. Brick was following me and I could see the mission marker on top of him, but speak option wasn’t available.
I had similar issues with other missions as well so I knew leaving the area and killing some enemies could help. And it did. So if you encounter the same problem, just walk away from the arena and it might help.
