A Texas man said he had to grab a sword in a duel with his girlfriend's ex. The scuffle landed both of them in the hospital.

Eugene Thompson said he got into an argument with his live-in girlfriend Saturday night.

Soon after, her estranged husband showed up and tried to barge in.

Thompson pulled out his replica sword from the "Legend of Zelda" Nintendo game.

"And I pulled it out and I stood in the doorway and he was just coming down that hall at me while I was yelling 'Go away you don't live here.' And he just walked right into the point. I don't know if he thought it was a toy," said Eugene Thompson.

The estranged husband was stabbed in the chest and leg during the brawl. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Thompson was allegedly hit with a flower pot and treated for a head gash.
