I really think he was ready to go out in a blaze of glory down there.
Pretty much how Bane definitely lost the moment he saw Batman's symbol on that bridge, Batman lost as soon as he walked into that part of the sewers. Before he didn't know about the rigged charges or the countless of soldiers, he probably had a plan...but, yah, to think if Batman won...who knows how that would've actually ended. The soldiers would've probably just decided to blast Batman away with bullets.

Much like Shikamaru said, Batman did technically beat Bane by his own hand. And not just physically either, but mentally as well while he climbed out of the Pit and Bane tries to gain his edge by saying "I broke you" while he himself is broken at that moment by Batman. He won that second bout before Talia intervened and the idea that Talia intervened, I don't see anything wrong with Catwoman intervening to then help Batman in the end.
Could the second fight be longer? Most definitely, but the timing the fight did have worked with the interlocking scenes of what else was going on with Gordon and with Blake. Although 60 seconds is a total understatement.
The second fight without interruptions:
