The Aaron Hernandez jail fight has triggered an internal investigation at Bristol County Jail ... with officials gunning to find out how deputies would allow two guys with known beef to come face to face, TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Hernandez -- who's supposed to be a segregated prisoner for his own protection -- attacked another inmate in a jail hallway Tuesday and beat the guy up pretty badly.

Our sources tell us ... it was no secret Aaron and the other guy had been mouthing off at each other for some time ... and now officials want to know how in the hell they both ended up in the same hallway at the same time.

Now, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says officials are talking to witnesses and checking jail cameras to find out exactly what went down.

Stay tuned ...

Usually the CO's are to blame. It's like controlled gladiators, and they like it quite a bit.

The CO's probably were tired of them two goofs yapping at each other and let them go at it. I'm sure they wagered on the winner as well.

Do you know what is the funny part about the TMZ sports story they have alot of it wrong lol..They do not get the whole story like I do because I do live really close to Mass and our news station is their news station and TMZ has it where the guy was beaten up really bad and that is not true.None of them had serious injurys and they didn't need any medical attention that was on the news here.I think TMZ should find out the truth before telling the whole world bunch of lies
