The Malakhov's fight started significantly after the original bout began.
Stupid rule, imho. If I'm going head to head with some guy and want to fight him, I can't if my teammate is already fighting someone? I understand that there's only two linesmen and at most, two referees, but what happens when there's 3, 4, 5, even 6 fights at once? It's rare, but does everyone get tossed except the first two?
