[Update: Our winner is Santo, whose second contest entry humbly admitted he'd least like to fight "any of them. I am but a lowly present day Earthling, and I'm pretty sure anyone from the Halo universe could kick my ass up one side and down the other (whatever that means)." So, if you're Santo, congratulations! If you're not, maybe he'll let you come over and enjoy his haul.]

We don't know if you heard, but Halo 3 came out today. Yep, the one with the, um, "master chef" dude. But seriously, if you're like us, you've been counting down to this date -- for years. You've been humming the theme like mad -- for days . And you've been daydreaming -- a lot. You know, the one where you're in a shiny green suit wrastlin' with the fate of the stars in your hands. So here's what we want to know from all you would-be tough guys and gals: Which Halo universe character would you least like to face in a fight? If you tell us, there's a chance you're going to get hooked up -- a lot.

Here's the deal: The contest starts n-o-w and ends a week from today, at 8:00 PM EDT (Oct 2). You enter by leaving a comment on this post telling us who (or what) in the Halo universe you'd least like to face mano-a-mano -- no 'nades, no blades, no nothin'. Just your fists.
