In the wild, males can flee a stronger more dominate male. In captivity, they are stuck in a cage with no escape. In nature, battles for mates rarely result in the death of one of the combatants. It is still very possible, as a lucky bite could severely injure the individual, hampering it enough it cannot fend for itself.

For bearded dragons most often its all display to show they are of better health etc. Hence why bearded dragons get such black beards and splay them out, bobbing heads etc. This is common with many species of reptiles, all to prevent injury to both. If two males are pretty evenly matched they will fight till one gives up and flees.
