Matsumoto should win this fight. Rukia is very powerful for an unseated Shinigami, but she's at a very low lieutenant level at her highest. Matsumoto is one of the more powerful lieutenants when she puts her mind to it. Also she's shown the ability to use her Shikai for physical defense so when her blade dissolves she can still block Rukia's sword and dodge all of her ice attacks.

she was hanging with him in his normal form, & resoucefulness can come into play in a battle as well. Rukia's signature attacks are bettter & would certainly be able to kill her.
