The question as I see it is: When you look at the building in question,
do you think "this building looks like a bullring" or do you think "this
building looks like a stadium, and bullfighting is the primary sport here"?

I don't know if there's a distinct style of traditional bullring
architecture, but if there is, then building=bullring makes sense for
those. (And in fact such buildings might still be tagged
building=bullring even if bullfighting no longer happens there.)

Furthermore, if a more generic-looking stadium were built that was not
in the distinctive bullring style, but was still primary used for
bullfights, then building=stadium might be a better choice for that one.
