[Book Spoilers] The three swordsman that would stand a chance against Jaime Lannister?

Jaime thinks about this in ASoS, and he takes the Cleganes off this list because of speed and skill. I don't recall if Barristan is mentioned in the passage, but he's well past his prime, whereas Jaime is in his. That's why I pick Victarion - not only is he a hell of a fighter but his first chapter sets up just how in his prime he is.
Oberyn's battle-tested; he's fought in the free companies and is deceitful.
Lyn Corbray wields Lady Forlorn and killed Prince Lewyn Martell of the Kingsguard at the Trident I believe, and he was considerably young at the time (Martell may have been injured and the details of the story embellished). He's only more seasoned, more deceitful, and more dangerous.

Considering how they talked about Ser Barristan, I have no doubt that he is the best.
My guess would be the Clegane brothers and maybe Ser Barristan on Loras Tyrell.

Sandor "The Hound" Clegane
Brynden "Blackfish" Tully
Barristan is the last remaining of Aerys' legendary kingsguard, Sandor is a machine with speed, strength and skill. Brynden is an experienced veteran and one of Jaime's childhood heroes.
