Until we see him in action, Dayne's so much faster it's hilarious, he was literally defending from four separate points of attack simultaneously during his fight, he will run rings around Gregorstein. All he has to do is catch him in the weak spots in his armour, legs, head and arms.
Well, Arthur doesn't have the reach advantage that Oberyn had. And getting that close to Gregor(assuming he's also in his full plate) is never a good idea. I'll probably side with Gregor.
The armour he wears isn't full plate in the show.
Until we see how UnGregor handles a real fight, I'm looking at it as if its regular Gregor vs. Dayne. The Sword of the Morning curbstomps
Agreed. The zombie Mountain hasn't fought anybody of note; so far, he's pretty slow. Hell, he hasn't even drawn his sword yet.
The outcome would have been exactly the same because it's not a real life fight, it's a part of a story that shows how good he is.
Logically though, duel-wielding against multiple opponents would be better because he can attack and defend at the same time. A great sword would not give him that advantage.
House Dayne of Starfall is pledged to the Martell's. Dayne was older, but not significantly older than Oberyn. As the greatest knight in all of Dorne, and the Seven Kingdoms, I'm sure he knew Oberyn well. There is probably a good chance he helped train Oberyn at some point. He also most certainly know how to use a spear.
Sword or spear, Dayne destroys FrankenGregor.
I will actually say UnGregor for this one. I'm pretty sure he doesn't feel any pain (being a zombie), so he can just walk up to Dayne, ignore the injuries he will inflict on him, and tear his arms off or something. Sure Dayne can evade him for a while, but the second Gregor gets hold of him... it's all over.
@willpayton: Logically, each sword would limit the range of motion of the other, and trying to take on multiple opponents, or even one opponent, would likely cause you to bind/tangle your own weapons. We actually see this happen at several points in the fiht, despite the choreography.
Historical dual weilders used a short sword (or dagger even) paired with a long sword. Not two long swords.
