Sometimes it is the preparation that is the *real* contest, rather than the fight, as per my "When does the contest begin?" comments. Ditch the bean-counting and concentrate on the tale itself. If you intend the fight to be the dramatic high-point, just declare that preparation by one side has been offset by the preparation of the other, call it even, and carry on with the show.
