Male Neutering & Fighting Back

Last fall I had a a 5 year old male outdoor cat neutered. We had this cat from the time he was 6 weeks old.   About a month ago a large black male cat that has periodically appeared on our property came back.  In the past the male I had neutered would fiercely fight this other cat and drive him away.  This time, he just continued to get the crap beat out of him by the black cat.  My neutered cat disappeared about a week ago and we assume he is dead.  My husband blames me for this.  He says that if I had not neutered him he would have been able to fight back and that by neutering him he had no ability to fight back.  The same thing happened about 15 years ago.  We had an outdoor male.  I had him neutered and within a month he was gone and assumed dead.  The vets all say that neutering a male cat lengthens their life.  I am feeling really bad about this.  Is my husband right?

 Everyone has there own choices. I don't think one should do that. In my opinion, never play with natures cycle of growth and development of any living being. Maybe you would have done it to avoid the unwanted things to occur in future. But there can be other ways to it also. Hope you agree to that!!
