I would be willing to bet that Prof. Friday's fighter would lose.

Umm. Musashi comes to mind. So does Choki Motobu.
KAMI : Also Hwang Kee, of Tang Soo Do and ultimately Takeda Sokaku and Ueshiba Morihei themselves(both were never too dedicated to the study of any art).
I agree with you on everything, of course.
