Bas Rutten did do the mocap for the fighting techniques for Niko. True.

The movements were copy and pasted for both Luis and Johnny. True.

 

The way I see it, I see the cut-scenes to be canon and the implemented hints.

 

  • Niko knows krav maga as shown in, "Three's a Crowd" and, "Search and Delete".
  • Johnny is just a brawler kinda guy as shown in, "Heavy Toll" where he straight up punched the guy in the face.
  • Luis performs a spinning backfist as shown in the trailer. The origin for the spinning backfist is hard to know but I just learnt it from kickboxing. In, "Bang Bang", Luis just headbutts Evan, which is dirty fighting I suppose. In, "Chinese Takeout" Luis does a push kick using his left leg to disarm the guy. Because he used his lead leg, it left him room to use footwork from his right foot, which allowed him to generate momentum and therefore knock him out. But the biggest hint is Rockstar's implementation of the cage fighting. There is a reason why R* implemented this, a reason why Luis is the, "Liberty City Champion". R* used this is to show that Luis is the best fist fighter, otherwise there would be no other reason why they implemented it. Hence why I believe, because of R* hint implementation, that Luis would win in a fist fight.
I do respect your opinion, I do. It's just R* implementation of,"Liberty City Champion" that shows Luis is the best fist fighter. The same reason why Niko is the best driver in Liberty City when awarded, "Genetically Superior". Know what I'm saying?
Cage fighting was implemented into TBoGT because Luis did/does Cage Fighting.

It's not to show that he's the best fist fighter in the trio, and Niko sure as sh*t isn't the best driver in LC.

The cutscenes and the awards would define them.

Yeah, whatever happens in cutscenes is definitely canon. I see the underground fight club as simply a game feature in TBoGT and not necessarily Rockstar hinting at Luis' badassery...although it can be added to Luis' resume that he is indeed the "Liberty City Champion" of that club. But, that is only a title. I do get what you're saying though. It would be one hell of a war though, and I respect your opinion as well.

The end.

YNiko would beat Luis in a gun fight easily.

Actually wether they are armed or not makes no difference Luis an Niko are both soldiers Niko Russian an Luis American they both showcase John Wick like fiream training an show off some neat kickboxing an Taekwondo they both also demonstrated some deadly muay thai an krav maga Niko uses his legs an elbows alot when facing attackers half the size of him showing tht he can put almost anyone down they both show excellent improvisation with household objects and also demonstrate some systemma weapon training as well as kali escrima disarm techniques moves you also find in bjj an Sambo or Sombo wich makes sense considering Niko is Russian however although they seem evenly matched when you consider all of this you must remember Niko is a fully trained assassin he says so countless times an definitely has a higher body count than a former marine turned nightclub manager/Bodyguard in conclusion due to Nikos extensive training from both the military an his no nonsense style as a martial artist Niko takes this after what I can only describe as a bad ass fight he wont win easy but from sheer will alone Niko has this btw full disclosure I love Luis an his Michael Jai White like kickboxing style but Niko has more experience in ending lives an has the better condition

Niko is Serbian not Russian. Luis was never in the military, his father was. He just learned to fight in prison.
