Why did Bane even put a rope around him? He was going to just shoot him.
For a civilian, punching Bane's mask with your bare hands, would hurt. However, I don't think Batman was targeting his mask in the first fight because the sound effect was different. In the first fight, it sounded like Batman was punching Bane's head. In the second fight, you can hear a "clicking" sound when Batman was hitting the mask.
The movie version of the 2nd fight sucked, especially with the cut scenes. If you watch it uncut on Youtube, it's a lot better.
But yeah, overall, the 2nd fight wasn't very good.
