For all of his billions in faked profits, convicted Ponzi Schemer Bernie Madoff recently got into a very real fight with a fellow inmate over the stock market, according to The New York Post.

Madoff, of course, is serving a 150-year prison sentence for a massive $68 billion fraud. The altercation, according to The New York Post, was over the state of the market and involved another older inmate, who left the fight "red-faced." Madoff's toughness, apparently, impressed a fellow inmate at the Butner, North Carolina facility that was quoted by the Post.

It's not the first fight involving jailed financiers in recent weeks. Last month, Allen Stanford sustained injuries, including "two black eyes and a broken nose" while fighting with another inmate.

This summer, a noted prison consultant offered this advice to Bernie Madoff about how to deal with his prison term. Among other things, the consultant suggested that Madoff should look for a job serving cappuccino in the prison Commissary Trust Fund.
