A fighter is out for the match if he falls. Basically any "third point" beyond the two feet. Also, losing a chunk of your armor, having a helmet come off, or a serious rules infraction like hacking someone behind the knee or in the throat. That's why a lot of the action is along the fence. It's a lot harder to take someone down there, as opposed to the middle of the field.

A fighter is also down by submission. Sometimes it's just better to take a knee than get hacked by a big axe over and over again.
