Bruce overcoming Bane came before the fight by escaping The Pit. Bruce is consumed by his pain throughout the film and one of the things that the Pit symbolizes is Bane. Bane never escaped the Pit, instead being saved by Ra's and given a mask to mask his pain. Bruce climbing from the Pit is him rising above his pain and leaving it all behind, something Bane never did.
