Apparently, if a bull somehow survives a fight it is slaughtered, not allowed to fight again... Because if bulls were allowed to learn about the tricks those weak humans are using in the arena, the fights would start to turn out very differently. So I'd say either ban it completely, or let the bulls who survive come back so the 'job' of matador would be far more dangerous and less popular. That would also control this 'sport' fairly effectively.
