(Scroll down for video) Two vendors may lose their business after they got into an ugly watermelon fight.

Things got messy when the two watermelon sellers of China, began arguing and throwing watermelons at each other in the city of Taicang.

The ugly scene occurred after weeks of fighting between Cai Cheng, who has a store selling watermelons, and Fai Kuo, who parks his three wheeled bike down the road and sells watermelons on the street.

Cheng said that he had repeatedly called the police about his unlicensed competition. However, when police arrived, Kuo drove off.

After police were unable to help him, Cheng took matters into his own hands, and he went over to speak to Kou. The two got into a heated argument, and Cheng grabbed Kou’s watermelon as a weapon. After being hit with watermelons the two began punching each other.

Security surveillance footage caught the two fighting in the street, shortly before they were arrested by police. Police said that the men will likely face a fine.

Making matters worse, with both people no longer selling watermelons, a third vendor has now moved into the area and is said to be making a lot of money by selling to the customers of both men.
