Nominated by HJ.  Fight takes place in a back alley with trash cans, broken beer bottles, and whatever else they can grab when they’re not piledriving each other.

With my limited knowledge of Marv I think Haggar whips him seething fierce.

Unlike like with Cody and Guy, there aren't as many concrete feats for Haggar. However,

-He and Zangief have a fued. Not in terms of combat, but in competing moves against each other. Zangief's lariat was actually
taken from Haggar's.

-He's got a long reputation and experience as a professional wrestler, having held the championship for years.

-Along with Guy and Cody, he's very well
experienced fighting against multiple opponents in a street fight scenario, not just with fisticuffs but with melee weapons (bats, pipes, etc).

-He did fight and beat Hugo, who is capable of no-selling Ryu's most powerful attack (Shinshoryuken).

-Haggar's also a lot bigger than Marv. Not saying that gives him advantage per say, but I wouldn't doubt that he is probably(?) stronger.

All that being said, Marv most likely has the better or at least, more accomplished feats.

I'd say if Marv walks into this looking to brawl, he'll get fucked up, but still make a decent fight out of it. Otherwise, I think Marv will use his smarts to take some wins.

Marv 60-80%

Haggar was Zangiev's mentor, wasn't he?

I'd say Haggar's stronger, although there's not much in it.

The difference is, Marv will not. Stay. Down.

Haggar can piledrive him until the cows come home and Marv will get up, rub the top of his head, light a cigarette and say 'That was fun. Now it's my turn.'

So it's Diesel vs the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 12 then?

No, unless I'm mistaken, the two have never met, but they are aware of each other
and their respective wrestling reputations. They're mostly in a one-upmanship
competition with one another.

For the most part, Zangief would absolutely win in a fight between the two. Now if this
was the Marvel vs. version of Haggar, this match would be pretty one-sided.
