A guy in your face with a clenched fist is not a life threatening, nor is that causing major bodily harm.
Though I agree with you that it wasn't a life threatening situation, wearing a firearm on your hip is not displaying in a threatening manner.
Now, if he made verbal threats, pulled the gun out of the holster, or even started pointing at the firearm, I think you would have a case for brandishing. Simply having it on your hip, hoping the situation will defuse itself, is not.
