For Ryu it's only about the fight, Ken doesn't devote himself as much, so i'll say Ryu.

Ryu is the better fighter out of the two imo. He has the dedication/devotion and skills. So does Ken, but Ryu pretty much just focuses on fighting while Ken has some other interests as well.

Ryu. Natural born fighter. Fighting is all he knows, besides eating, drinking, sleeping, training, and taking a dump. Ken does all that, doesn't devote the same amount of time to training and fighting as Ryu does.

Ken. He'd rip Ryu into flaming pieces.

Ryu is the better fighter than Ken... Ryu is more focused on Fighting... and Fighting alone

Ryu, but only because that's all he does. Ken is almost as strong and actually has a life. If Ken trained and fought as much as Ryu, he'd be ten times the fighter Ryu is IMO.

ryan is better fighter then ken but i always like ken more than ryu

Ken is awsome, but he just doesn't have that spark/potentiel that Ryu has. That's why Bison has always had a fascination with Ryu, cause of the potentiel in power he holds, same with Akuma's interest in Ryu!

 The only reason Ryu might always be a step ahead is because Ken has responsibilities and reputation to maintain. He also enjoys life.

 Ryu is just a lone wandering bum and is only good for a fight and nothing else.

Ryu has always been the harder-hitter though, but Ken has always been the fastest.

Those who play the games since the bigining would notice that.

Ken since the guy have a reason to fight, Ryu also have the power of being the main character, since DBZ show that train dont care and is about being the main character or your "pure heart". 
Still i am going with Ken since the guy have a reson to do things.
