Broadly, yes. I would expect a highly skilled fighter to dispatch a partly incapacitated opponent much more rapidly and effectively than a less skilled one.

To revisit the chess analogy, if two novice players find one of the pawns is missing and play some games anyway, it's less likely to change the results than if a grandmaster has to play another grandmaster at a pawn down. Margin for error decreases as skill improves.
