Chris Brown made a public apology yesterday for assaulting Rihanna earlier this year.

Although we may never know the answers, does it really matter? Is it ever acceptable for a man strike back if a woman is hitting him?
Women have approximately 40% to 60% of the upper-body strength and 70% to 75% of the lower-body strength of men. This is attributed to a few factors, including hormone and physiologic differences (Source: Stumptuous.com).
Knowing this, is it fair to say that even if a woman is absolutely losing it on a guy, he should just take it and try to restrain her/get away from the situation?
Or can a man not be held responsible for his temper getting out of control when a woman is really pushing his buttons?
