An intense, heated exchange took place between head judge Len Goodman and dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy on 'Dancing With the Stars' last night. After Goodman called athlete Hope Solo's rumba "the worst dance of the whole season," Chmerkovskiy lashed out while defending his partner.

At one point during the verbal fisticuffs, Goodman even cited his many years of experience as a professional dancer, to which Chmerkovskiy replied, "Maybe it's time to get out." Ouch! That probably won't improve your chances of winning the disco ball trophy, Maks.

Watch the fireworks below.
