So would you roll one roll per round, with that including both players
"attacks" and resolved essentially simultaneously, or on each of their
actions do they get an "attack" resisted vs the opponent's "fight"?

If you have an expert against a novice - say 120% vs 20%, there's no
conceivable way the novice can get lucky?
