Romeo thinks he is part of Tybalt's family now that he has secretly been maried to Juliet, Besides, Romeo was never very much of a fighter, 

I do protest I never injured thee,
But love thee better than thou canst devise,
Till thou shalt know the reason of my love.
And so, good Capulet—which name I tender
As dearly as my own—be satisfied.
