It is no secret hockey fans salivate every time the puck drops with the possibility of a fight following every hard check.
While fighting is embraced in hockey, it is seen as classless in other sports.

Ironically, however, this is a compilation of the best teammate fights in history. With emotions fueling and anger clearly omnipresent in these situations, these teammates couldn’t stifle their rage and the rest is evident.
