Micah Richards and Clint Dempsey re-enact fight from Man City vs Fulham game in 2007, it's so good

Micah Richards and Clint Dempsey have re-enacted their scuffle from a 2007 clash between Manchester City and Fulham – and it makes for a seriously entertaining watch.

On September 22, 2007, Lawrie Sanchez's Fulham managed to snatch a point against Manchester City in a six-goal thriller at Craven Cottage.

Martin Petrov [2] and Emile Mpenza netted for Sven-Goran Eriksson's men that day, while Simon Davies, Hameur Bouazza and Danny Murphy managed to score for the Cottagers.

It was a game full of incidents, including a rather innocuous scrap between Fulham striker Clint Dempsey and then-England international Micah Richards.

Richards, who started in a back four of Vedran Corluka, Richard Dunne and Javier Garrido, appeared to start the confrontation after failing to win a header.

Well, 16 years on and the pair were sat alongside each other on the CBS Sports punditry desk ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League fixtures.

As you can see from the footage below, fellow pundit Jamie Carragher introduced the segment before asking both men to stand up and make their way to the big screen.

Here, both Richards and Dempsey delivered a performance for the ages as the footage played behind. Take a look below:

Last year, Richards left Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher in fits of laughter when presenter Kate Abdo asked the panel what the strangest thing an opposition player ever said to them.

Richards soon opened up on what Dempsey said to him during that 2007 clash. He replied in an American accent: "You don't know where I'm from, dog!"

"I tackled him and he pushed me and I said 'don't push me'," Richards added. "He said 'you don't know where I'm from, dog'. I was like, really? Really?"
