    Healthy Kimimaro takes this one IMO..He has better ranged jutsu with sawarabi no mai and finger bone bullets..And his taijutsu dances (Tessenka no mai) can also easily overwhelm Zabuza in CQC..Moreover Zabuza doesn't really have much in his arsenal to destroy Kimimaro's bones..Kimimaro takes this fight when he gets into CS2

    Zabuza can't hurt him, and I don't buy Kimi not being able to operate in the mist.

    Kimimaro stomps
    Oh wait, according to one of the stickied threads, 'Sasori curbstomps' type of replies are not allowed.

    In that case. . .

    Taijutsu:
    Both are taijutsu based fighters.
    However, Kimimaro is a warrior type while Zabuza is an assassin type which traditionally puts Kimimaro ahead.
    Additionally, Zabuza has no feats or hype of him being a master of hand to hand. His only clash in that regard ended in a loss against someone physically weaker, using a kunai! His fame is also based on him avoiding straight hand to hand and opting for a safe kill. So he really isn't portrayed as a close combat specialist.
    On the other hand, Kimimaro is portrayed as an absolute master in this field, having mastered The Five Dances. He also is portrayed as being on a higher level than Kabuto, who is portrayed equal to Kakashi, whom Zabuza dismally lost to. So by association comparisons, Kimimaro is better.

    Ninjutsu:

    Zabuza has his mist and offensive water releases. These will be good for keeping safe from Kimimaro who is better at straight clashes.
    However, Kimimaro has his own ranged techniques which should have better power than what Zabuza is packing. His bullets should go right through the Water Release: Water Vortex technique.
    Additionally, his Bracken Dance also zero riffs any attempts to hide in the mist, even at zero visibility.
    Lastly, Zabuza can aim to catch Kimimaro in a Water Prison. That would be meaningless as his Pine Dance low diffs such techniques

    Special Abilities:
    Zabuza has a huge sword which is famous for one thing: it breaks easily. In fact, its entire m.o. is based on this.
    Now Kimimaro is specially suited to not allowing said sword to recover. First through his armour, second through his speed.

    Okay, I'm not 100% satisfied with my formatting of this post. I hope the point is clear tho: Zabuza cannot win

    Kimi would win more times then not. Kimi is better in CQC and between his regen and bone defense he can pretty much take whatever Zabuza dishes out, it’s just a matter of time before Zabuza gets overwhelmed

    Seriously what is Zabuza going to do to Kimimaro? Kimi was a beast half dead, I don't even want to imagine a healthy version of him.

    Dunno how durable Kimi was, but Gaara was hitting him with some pretty powerful looking shit.
