This fight came in a playoff game between the LA Galaxy and the NY Red Bulls last night.  The Galaxy won the match 1-0 with a goal from Mike Magee.  Rafael Marquez, a Red Bull defender, was not to happy about losing the game a rifled a ball at Landon Donovan after the game was over.  Donovan's teammates did not take nicely to that and started a little brawl with Marquez.  If you can call it a brawl.

It didn't look to me like anyone actually got hit with a punch?  But since it's soccer two players collapsed like they got caught with a Mike Tyson upper cut to the jaw.  Kinda makes me wanna throw up some times to see grown men act like such girls.  If your gonna start a fight with someone don't act like you got hit when nobody is within 10 feet of you.  I thought flopping was for Euro players, and now the MLS is getting even worse.

Fast forward to 1:18 for the slow motion replay.
