Goomoonryong will win
Kangsung will be victorious
I am confused
The current chief of Martial Arts Alliance, Kangsung (Three Arts Dragon) is perhaps the only character in the series who hinted that he can trouble the Nine Arts Dragon aka Goomoonryong. He held his own against Goomoonryong, who had entered in the state of Black Origin Threshold. Although, it is debatable if Goomoonryong was at his full strength or not.
Moving on, lets assume Goomoonryong was fully healed for this particular match-up. Who do you think will come out as a winner?
If any gap in ability exists between Kangsung and GMR, the gap is miniscule. Kangsung forced GMR to tie with him in 3 different matches and his master mentioned that Kangsung would have gone farther if he had not opted out. Kangsung is also the only opponent GMR is very weary of fighting and has the "god hype" that GMR has. There's also thematic sharings such as the "Tiger vs Dragon" and "Chaos vs Order" between the two.
On a side note, I think the author stated even he has no idea on how a fight between the two would turn out, but I'm currently incapable of providing proof for said statement.

I'm actually very unsure whether to vote for Goomonryong or Kangsung until we (hopefully) get to see Goomonryong again. I feel that one is as strong as the other and that the two of them are perfectly balanced. Yes, Kangsung could have gone further but so could Goomonryong and unless Goomonryong comes back and is stronger than before (and we assume Kangsung hasn't improved) then I can't decide a winner.
My two cents:
They are closely matched but I think Goomoonryong has the edge. Kangsun mastered three arts--->Sammoonryong, whereas Goomoonryong was master of nine arts. Like Blai said we need to see more of them to exactly gauge their strength but 9 arts > 3 arts on the paper, no?
Goomoonryong and Sammoonryong fought each other on the rooftop of Koa Business Center. But the circumstances were different and can not an exact indicator of their strength. I think a fully healed Goomoonryong, especially not entered in the state of BOT, is more dangerous against an enemy like Kangsung.
GMR is in trance when he is fighting in the rooftop and also Kangsung knows the story behind GMR that he is the only one that has a know how on Black Heaven Tech and kangsung did not want to fight or kill GMR because if GMR die Black Heaven Tech will be gone forever (but GMR already made PLAN B if it is really a plan putting his teachings on Shioon's phone)
Moreover, its a fantasy battle that may or may not occur, Kangsun chose not to become a Goomoonryong does not directly effect the battle. However, one can use the fact to gauge his potential.
Voted for Kangsung. Pretty sure GMR wins in power. I remember when the story compared their stomping techniques. Big difference!!! However, Kangsung seems the more honorable and understanding of the two. So if they fought, hopefully he'd have cause to win.
