The United States isn’t the only country in the world conflicted about Coronavirus lockdowns and mask wearing.

Australia has been struggling to get its pandemic situation back under control as the amount of community spread increases, and states have set in motion various levels of lockdown protocols in an attempt to stop the virus. Victoria is the worst hit region with Melbourne instituting an 8PM curfew and using police to spot check those who have tested positive to make sure they’re staying home.

All these conditions and mandates have angered some Australians, including former UFC fighter Vik Grujic, who has gone so far as to challenge the ‘evil’ and ‘wicked’ Premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews to a fight. For those of you who don’t understand commonwealth politics, the Premier is like a state governor.

Vik has been making headlines in Victoria since early on in the pandemic after refusing to wear a mask back in July.

We hope Vik fares better against the threat of Coronavirus than he does in his UFC career. After losing in the semi-finals of The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia, he put together a 1-3 record with the promotion leading to his release in 2015. His only fight since was a second round knockout loss in 2017, leaving him with a 6-6 record.

Could he pull off a win over Daniel Andrews? Will Andrews respond? Just give us a minute to track him down at the ol’ watering hole.

Just kidding! The waterhole is closed.
