This could get pretty interesting, they're both every agile and aggressive and use fighting styles that play to that strength. Inigo uses a Rapier and Oberyn seems to prefer that spear.

They're both non-powered humans, so the rule of war (anyone can die, anything can happen) applies. Tough call. Inigo seems a bit faster, both in reaction speed and movement speed, but Oberyn has a significant reach advantage.

I can see Inigo chopping off the blade of the spear and taking it.

Also, depending on what kind of spear Oberyn was using, Inigo walks home.. or doesn't, even after the win.

Pretty difficult to break a spear with a rapier. They're heavier than people realize, but nowhere near as heavy as the sword The Mountain used, and it still took a while for him to break Oberyn's first spear.

Regardless of the outcome, yeah, the victor would be heavily wounded and possibly die of his injuries later, poison or otherwise. That was pretty common in old duels, for both contenders to die (or sometimes, both of them to live, the defeated sometimes surviving what was thought to be mortal injuries, or sometimes even rallying back killing their opponent after recieving what was thought to be a killing blow. The human body is weirdly resilient, until it isn't.)
