I suppose the same principles apply as to when you face a close-combat specialist or any enemy who's very skilled - but with a short weapon. Choose a Reach 2 weapon, for instance. Ranged weapons also work, if you hit. In any case, if you can back away, make your attack then take a step back. Wait also might work, depending on circumstances, and especially if you do have a long weapon.
