This would be a great fight, especially on Malgus' turf.  I give the slight early edge to Kenobi but wouldn't be surprised if it tips the other way later on.

If Malgus is on his station he would have plenty of Sith Acolytes to take care of Kenobi

How strong would those other Sith be? Darth Maul level or what?

I found this video on YouTube of Darth Malgus fighting.  I dont think Obi-Wan would beat him in a one on one lightsaber battle.

Kenobi is a master infilrator.

In SWTOR, when you are going for Darth Malgus, there are numerous foes that you must get through including HK-47.   Here is a breakdown of it if you want to review whats on his space station:

That being said, as pointed out -

It is feasible that Obi-Wan could stay out of sight until he wants to attack.  Im thinking of when he confronts Grievous in front of thousands upon thousands of battle droids.  However, he would have to convince Malgus to fight him one on one and not summon anyone or anything to take out Kenobi for him.

Malgus is seemingly very brutal.  Much more so then Kenobi is used to.  I just think the odds are very much staked against him.

Obi-Wan's primary lightsaber combat style, Soresu or Form III, is the ultimate defense against multiple attackers. It's how he survived taking on General Grevious and his Magnaguards, it's how he defeated Darth Vader's hateful and aggressive style on Mustafar, and if you watched the Clone Wars (cgi) cartoon series and witnessed Kenobi taking on Darth Maul and Savage Opress, you will see him using Soresu to survive that encounter. 

That being said, before Kenobi approached his prime he was defeated by Jango Fett and Count Dooku while employing this fighting style. Even in Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan still lost to Dooku in another 2 on 1 battle while utilizing Soresu. In both battles Count Dooku, a master swordsman and battle tactition, breaks through Obi-Wan's defense-based style. 

I don't know much about Darth Malgus, but I can pretty confidently say that he is more proficient than Dooku in both Force power and lightsaber skills, however slightly. So by that logic, I'm betting on Malgus to break down Kenobi's defenses without the use of his acolytes.

Im leaning more towards Malgus winning with or without his acolytes.

Obi Wan did defeat Anakin at the height of his power.  Anakin also fights in a very similar, aggressive style.

Yes, but Obi-Wan literally taught Anakin everything he knew. He had a slight upper hand there, but i'm not trying to take away Anakin-Vader's dark side prowess.

obi Wan defeated Anakin because of their relationship with the force.  Not relevant here.

OK, maybe that's not an exact quote from these forums, but I'm pretty sure I've heard a Red Five somewhere say that.
