In a fight, why would you potentially survive a predator attack?
Answer Predators can't afford to get injured, so fighting back deters them.
If predators get injured and cannot hunt effectively then they starve. Evolution has taught them to retreat if they risk serious injury. Attack the sensitive areas. A punch to the nose, or gouging the eyes might be enough to send it running.
