    I'm looking forward to this showdown, but I actually believe it will be a draw. Something breaks up the fight, but maybe Finn gets in a good blow and they will have to finish this fight at another time.

    A draw for me, I can see a section of temple collapsing separating them.

    I also think a draw. I think they will show how Finn has progressed to match Phasma but not yet read to beat her.

    I'm hoping for a Finn victory, if only so we don't have to revisit this conflict in IX. Let Phasma be done in TLJ.

    Finn and Phasma fight, explosions all around them. Its brutal with really heavy hitting shots from the baton against her. They continue to trade blows with Finn being bloodied, finally she knocks him down (at which point we all collectively sigh). She readies her spear for the killing blow and Finn throws his hands up in defense only to push her back, revealing his force abilities. This way Phasma still wins the fight (and doesn't get humiliated again) but Finn also gets a "win"

    In truth, I would prefer that rather than Finn just beats Phasma. The idea of Finn beating a woman in physical combat doesn't sit well with me, I don't care how "strong" she's supposed to be.

    My bet (hope) is that Phasma demonstrates overall superiority- though is unmasked in the process, and events transpire- (as they often do) -that allow Fin to escape.

    Catching a glimpse of a sweaty Gwendoline Christie greatly appeals to my base nature... that- and I’d like to see that character develop a bit.

    A Finn victory, or a match that would have went in his favor if it wasn't interrupted.

    I’m thinking a draw. They fight for a while, both make pretty good blows. But then Finn knocks of Phasma’s helmet. They stare at each other for a second. Phasma hesitates. But then huge chubcjs of metal crash down between them. It looks like that scene takes place inside of a self-destructing Star Destroyer. Phasma and Finn retreat in there own ways. Finn escapes with his friends, Phasma escaped with her troops. Star Destroyer explodeds.

    A draw, it will only be resolved in 9. You know what happens when either of them wins:

    "bwehhhhhhhh Phasma is such a weak character, I expected so much more blabla" - when Finn wins
    "bwehhhhhhhh Finn is such a weak character, needs the force, racism, comic relief blabla" - when Phasma wins.

    If we're being totally honest, Phasma is a step down in competition compared to what Finn has faced before (Kylo), so I expect ebb and flow to the battle, but this one should be a Finn victory; a definitive one. They can spend the first half of the movie establishing that Phasma was the bad a$$ she was never properly depicted as in TFA.

    I think that someone will have the upper hand in the fight but something will happen to make the fight a draw, leading to an Episode 9 final showdown.

    A draw for me, as I believe they'll probably have a good battle, but an exterior event will interrupt the meeting that will result in an "Another time, compadre!!" scenario and they'll go their separate ways.

    This is an interesting question. It could be argued that based on how both characters were portrayed in TFA that they both "need" a win. If they demonstrate earlier in the movie that Phasma is a badass, then I think Finn is the victor in a hard fought battle. However, if they do not demonstrate Phasma's skill then I think it will end in a draw or in a way that gives Finn a slight edge. I'm personally hoping for them to demonstrate Phasma's skill early on so that Finn ends up beating her in this battle.

    It would be useful for Phasma to win this fight. You could see this as her redemption. But it will most likely be a draw.

    But there is a difference. Kylo just toyed with Finn. As soon as Kylo was serious, the fight was over in seconds. Phasma on the other side will go at Finn with her full strenght.

    Agreed. I don’t want to imagine the nonsense that will break out if either of them win.

    Yeah there will be a small group no matter what happens will cry foul about everything. Already probably have conceived ideas of venom to spew even if it is a draw.

    IKR? Really immature people who have nothing better to do but to spew hate. Well, except playing video games in their mom’s basement.
