Seriously, I've seen guys take some serious shots from impact weapons in drunken streetfights and keep going, not even realizing just how badly they were hurt until minutes after it was all over. Like skyx39 said, unless their brains get real rattled, people will keep fighting even with shattered cheekbones, cracked skulls, fractured forearms, etc.
9 times out of 10 you're going to be selected for special attention before you're even aware of the presence of Mr. Thug and his buddies. You will be selected for things like your race, your style of dress or simply because Mr. Thug thinks he and his friends can take you. Especially that last one. Many of these types also understand the law favors them, they understand they can harass and abuse you in all kinds of ways and if you retaliate it's going to be your ass the police and prosecutors go after.
If you have not watched the Gangland series on the History Channel, then if you have Netflix you should check them out. See what kind of fools are out there that you are liable to run across at the mall, in the city centre, etc. See the level of savagery that is out there, that could rear its ugly head in YOUR face in a heartbeat. That's what you have to be ready for. Black gang bangers, Latino gang bangers, outlaw bikers, racist skinheads. They are all out there, right around the proverbial corner, and there will be a bunch of them.
watch a marathon showing of Gangland. Then watch the Mumbai footage. If that doesn't change your mindset, if you haven't decided before you run into them that you're going to return upon them ten-fold the violence they will deliver upon you, then stay home.

I have had martial arts teachers in the past who I am convinced have never been in a real fight, and yet they teach how to fight
