I liked the sparring scene between Ed, Al, and Armstrong, actually. And the kidnapping of Al by Greed's gang...
But I would have to say that my favorite fight scene, off the top of my head, was Barry vs. young Ed. There was something really viscereal about it. The setting was spine-chilling (all those pig carcasses, yeughh...) and Ed was very much a frightened preteen being forced to put his combat training to use seriously for the first time: panicking, half-crying, tripping over things and flailing helplessly.
Most anime tend to play the hero as very skilled in combat, so that fights are fun to watch but the outcome is clear from the start...or they let the fight degenerate into a "at the last second I pull out my supar sekret atakk!" situation. That scene came as close as possible for the eighth episode in a 51-episode series to convincing you that the main character was on the verge of becoming meat for the grinder....pun intended. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

And she particularly remembers the rush of prickly heat, the unfamiliar melting sensation that made her duck her head to hide a blush that caught her entirely by surprise; as she realized for the first time, in an entirely new way, that Ed was a boy.

definitely Ed vs Greed, that was an awesome fight
Ed's so nimble
Like the Slicer said, he's like a monkey. A small monkey .
Anyway, my favorite fights are as follows:
1.) Greed vs. Ed
2.) Roy vs. Ed ("You're so short you probably don't bump into the rails, do you?" "WHO'RE YOU CALLING SHORT?!" heh heh) Man! I CAN'T wait for that episode to show up on dub later tonight, this oughtta be great...

Slicer and Ed was nice. I also liked Al and Barry, Al & Ed vs Wrath, if you would count that since it wasnt that long haha. Anything with Envy cause his flips and monkey movements make it good to watch.
I would have to say the best might be Scar's battles. Especially Scar vs Lust & Gluttony. I mean come on.... blowing up anything with your arm has got to be cool.
