I don't know if this is a metaphor or "reason" per se, but it could just be that an unceremonious, sudden demise was the best kind of poetic justice for the character. He nonchalantly killed many people in very sudden, brutal ways throughout the movie and was planning to go out in a blaze of glory at the end. A cannon to the chest was a pretty brutal way for him to go out, and pretty inglorious indeed.
But truly, I feel Bane is done (spiritually speaking) after he's defeated by Batman. That massive pride of his has already taken a huge hit, and his legend has been deflated right before his enemy.
