To be honest, does Batman ever really fight fair? He uses cutting edge, military-grade weaponry, vehicles, and body armor to get the upper hand in combat. Look at the docks scene in Begins. Had Batman faced all of those guys in fair combat, he would have been shot dead. Instead he uses his arsenal along with parlor tricks to take them out in a predatory fashion. Comparatively, Bane only has an armored vest and the anesthetic, which is admittedly gives a big advantage, but in terms of fighting he only uses his appendages.
