I think folks may want to rewatch that fight scene between Spock and Khan. Spock was getting his ass handed to him until Uhura beamed down and phasered Khan. And she was the one who stopped Spock from outright killing Khan because they needed his blood to save Kirk.

She saved the day.
I think that if anyone else had beamed down, Spock kills Khan.

Actually Khan would have killed Spock. Spock seems to have a lot of endurance when he fights but he still would have lost the fight.
I disagree. Its the typical last fight scene in which the hero appears to be losing and then finally gathers enough strength to beat the enemy at the end.
Uhura's role was to rally Spock and give him the extra burden of taking Khan alive.
OK and the phaser bursts would have helped a bit.
