Soi Fon for a few reasons.
1st I'll probably be the only one fighting her corner and the girl needs some love lol.
2nd Hallibell isnt all that fast and doesnt have any way to keep soi fon away from her like Barragan can so presumably soi fon might be able to kill her in Shikai(oh yes i know sacreledge a captain killing the vaunted espada in shikai).
People keep whining about how Hitsugaya is only surviving Hallibell because he got the Exact opponent thats good for him and that Hallibell would look good if she got anyone else but that also applied for soi fon. She'd be a beast against ANYONE else but Barragan she just got paired with the worst possible opponent.
How about Yoruichi? Her in shikai couldn't take on Yoruichi without a zanpakutou, and her shunko also paled in comparison to Yoruichi.
I'd reckon that other speedsters like Byakuya, Ichigo, and Ulquiorra wouldn't have much a problem with her either.
Plus, I'd consider that pretty decent speed.
Add to the fact that her water attacks can't be negated by freezing, and I'd give Halibel the win. Soi Fon hasn't shown us anything impressive so far besides her 2hko shikai, but even that+shunko couldn't take down Yoruichi.
I'm pretty sure she's tied with byakuya in speed. As for Ulquiorra...well its Ulquiorra, he can wreck Vizard Ichigo ezpk.

How are you so sure she could avoid the water attacks, and how do you know the bakudo's would be enough to hold her down when the ice obelisk failed?
That's the difference though, for Hitsu, as soon as he sees the attack, he can freeze it, the fact remains that Soi Fon has to not only dodge Halibel's water attacks, but also manage to work her way up close, which Halibel won't make easy if she spams water attacks.
Also, even if she does get up close, Halibel's not exactly a shabby close range fighter from what she did to Hitsu.
I think Soi Fon would win. If she can keep Yoruichi on the defensive most their battle, using her speed and shikai, she probably could beat Halibel.
Soi Fon vs Youroichi is a poor example to be quite honest.
It's a psychological battle on Soi Fon's part, she'd be fighting her old master/idol. Regardless if she believes in upholding justice or wants to surpass her, psychologically I'm guessing she COULDN'T go all out on Youroichi.
I mean, if Soi Fon was serious she would have gone ALL OUT, bankai, "death in two steps", etc. And even at the end she broke down, crying. Youroichi was the worst possible opponent 1) Because she's pretty much a more experienced/better Soi Fon, and 2) She couldn't go all out.
As for Soi Fon vs Halibel, this is the match up I wanted too.
I'd give it to Halibel.
1) Unless soi Fon was uber fast/reactive, she'd have a hard time evading that "air cut".
2) She may be able to avoid the water attacks, but we know Halibal hasn't gone all out yet. And she does have an attack to fire in rapid succession (La Gota?).
3) MAYBE her bankai could do it in, assuming it's explosion does something/it has an after effect/her bankai does more. Halibal didn't show any defensive moves.
Soi Fon, if she is able to use her "Death in Two Strikes" technique. She is also much more adept in close combat than Hitsugaya is, and the reason why she was overpowered by Barragan was because his "age" technique prevented her from so.
The same RUSTY Yoruichi also sped past Byukuya WHILE carrying Ichigo.
I don't see where you get the impression that Byukuya could outspeed Soifon.
I have to say, having seen the damage Soi Fon's bankai did to Barragan and Hachi's eEPIC barrier AND how shocked Hachi was at its power considering he hangs out with the VAIZARD-at least four of which (Shinji, Kensei, Love and Rose) should have the power to curbstomp Hallibell in seconds flat, my belief that soi fon would win has since increased.
she is by far faster than Hallibell. As someone up there pointed out she was actually faster than yoruichi-yoruichi was just better at shunko. Since this implies she is also faster than byakuya, who can keep up with the fastest espada it would seem to establish as near as possible as fact that Soi Fon is much, much faster than Hallibell.
With that premise, she could conceivably dispatch Hallibell with her shikai alone-lets not forget Barragan is the only person she couldnt do that to.
Now seeg her bankai and her ability with bakudo it seems a fairly simple thing of hitting Hallibell with some bakudo to kepe her in place for a sec and then Hitting her with her bankai attack. On the latest evidence I really dont think Hallibell could survive it. I dont think we've seen anything in bleach that matches it for pure distructive force.

Halibel wins because her boobs are bigger.
I vote Soi Fon. She has a freaking nuclear missile. I find it hard to believe that Halibel can pull something out from her hot *** that can deal with that.
you don't think harribel can dodge the missile?
also that bankai is extremely risky. she can only do it once every
threedays. oh wait she found a way to do it twice.
guess she could even do more as long as that's what's required
to beat the enemy. not so sweet deus ex machina.
