We haven't seen what ninjutsu he can use, so there's really no point in this.

Yes, however, Gai using ninjutsu that we haven't even seen doesn't mean anything, and shouldn't even be mentioned.

I recall seeing Lee outlast Gai before in their training. I don't remember where, but I know it was after the time skip, so in that sense, Gai may be in trouble.

When has Gai ever used a tactic like that?

True, but would he actually do that? To knock out his kunoichi student?

Right. However, he's not shown any way of fighting at any range other than close range, and that's where Neji is strong, especially with his ridiculously fast striking speed and defenses.

It was said that they're rivals, but it was never specified in what they were rivals at. For all we know, in terms of taijutsu, Gai > Kakashi, in terms of everything else, Kakashi > Gai.

I disagree, especially since Gai has to deal with someone who isn't even his student anymore, and is now on Gai's level of rank.

Indeed, just like Neji.
