Oscars fighting agressively

I have currently two oscars in a 100g tank. One lutino (5inch) and one tiger (3inch). I recently got rid of my blood-parrot who was the dominant one in the tank. Ever since my oscars have been attacking each other aggressively, to the point where my tiger has bite marks on his sides. I've seen people say this is very normal but I'm wondering how far is too far and why are they really doing this? They lip lock and bite their sides.

Or get a divider and keep trying to re introduce them.
