Yeh, Ed has talent.
But so does Roy.
If anything, it'd be a flat out tie.
Mustang would definately win... I pesonaly think ED is more talented than mustang.... but i dont think anyone can beat Mutang's fire alchemy....... And we shouldnt also forget about Mustang's great military experience ..
oh i think ED would win...he has alot of bravere...and he has the will to go on..not to mention he can use alchemy without a circle..but hen again Mustang has that circle on his glove...

A lot of battles end like that. It may not be the most honorable, skill determining, or spectacular battle, but 1 man would be left standing and that man would clearly be ED. You blink you lose, very simple logic.
Now if it were another battle, same time, no mock, and Roy didn't have his flashbacks and everything was done the right way, Roy would obviously be the winner. Ed did not have the experience he had at the end of the series, nor did he have the knowledge of his opponent. Roy, had the experience, the knowledge, the first strike, and surprise on his side.
That isn't much of a comparison. The only way ED had a chance within the first 20 seconds was because he ran behind people like a coward. Now I understand that obstacles and terrain are a main facotry when in war, but on a flat open surface, it is clear that ED would stand absolutely no chance.
