Why My Cats Fights?

I love them both, Oreo and Minty. Oreo is the father and Minty is the first son. The mother, Candy died a few months ago of skin diesease, and so did Muffin, a few months earlier. Toffee, Muffin's twin, ran away when we moved to our new house last month because he's still not familiar with the surronding and we made a mistake of letting him out of the cage on the 2nd day we got them here. That's a whole lot of different story which I'll come to later.
(The picture shows Oreo and Candy at my old house with no backyard)

So, there's only 2 of them left, Oreo and Minty. 2 handsome male cats. Oreo is a Cameo while Minty is a Blue persian. While familiarising with the new house, and still some left over renovation job going around, they stay in their cage. Once in a while, they fight, but we always managed to stop them and its not too bad.

So yesterday, my garden was ready with the new set of Filipina grass. And the long awaited time has arrived for me to set the two cats out to live outside the cage. At first everything went smoothly. While fearing that they might go outside our compound, we keep a close eye on the two while combing their hair at the same time they 'smell' around the house. When things get on smoothly, I left them both to start on my 'herbal garden'.

Suddenly they were out of my sight and I went to look for the at the other side of the house. To my horror, they were ready to fight! I tried to cool them both and they seemed okay. But while looking for my garden tools, I heard them fighting! It was horrible. Oreo's hair was flown all over and they're really at each other claws and bitting. I screamed at them both but they won't stop until we sprinkle the water over them. Oreo was bleeding on the nose but wouldn't let me wipe it. Now he got a small scar on his face. Minty being a darker coloured cat, seemed okay.

I just don't know why they must fight. They've been living togther for more than 3 years now. ..
(I don't have an updated pics of Minty coz I lost it all when my PDA broke down, but you can view a cute video of Minty here when he was a kitten learning how to crawl. )
