Correct. Change the name to fit what the mechanic actually is.

But “mutually agreed combat with penalties for external interventions” is such a cumbersome term. Blink
It should be called fight club.

"Pilot x and Pilot y have entered fight club."

That, or Thunderdome:

"Pilot x and Pilot y have entered Thunderdome. Two went in, only one comes out."

Either of those would give a better feel for what combat is and not imply that honor is an aspect of it. Get in, kill the other guy with as much prejudice as possible and get out again.
