Suggested by iKnowledge Erza and Guts are both pretty skilled in using a blade. They can fight from mid-range or even long range with the shockwaves from their slices. Still, Erza has the edge here thanks in part to how versatile her armors are. She can keep swapping from armor to armor which will keep Guts off balance. His battle mode is pretty strong and can keep up with her toughest armors, but her array of special abilities will ultimately give her the edge here. Guts just has less tools in his arsenal. Erza wins.
