Most street fights last under a minute in my experience. It's all about getting a solid first blow and then if you get 3-4 more the other person usually doesn't want to fight anymore.
If I was boxing, then yea it would be sloppy. For street fights where the point is to end the situation as fast as possible and without injury, not so much.
