This is my way of thinking. The bat guy has one swing, maybe two if the knife guy messes up. But once the knife guy closes the distance, if he's still up and can fight, the bat lost and he's in for an extreme amount of pain.

If your the knife guy and you lose, odds are your going to sleep thus, you really don't experience TOOOO much.
