They were both at length parity, but I can imagine Saurophaganax being slightly heavier due to it being bulkier: www.skeletaldrawing.com/theropods/torvosaurus www.skeletaldrawing.com/theropods/allosaurus-fragilis Saurophaganax (I used an Allosaurus skeletal but they are very similar) has a far deeper torso than Torvosaurus, indicating that Saurophaganax's mass was far more centred in its torso. Torvosaurus obviously has a stronger bite force, but Saurophaganax has the advantage in the head/bite mobility department. Saurophaganax is also likely more agile, considering it has more lightly built head and tail ends. Imo Saurophaganax wins, but only slightly.
Allosaurus is probably one of the most efficiant predatory dinosaurs ever. They were very generalistic in feeding looking at its design so it could prey on any dinosaur it wanted, it hunted in packs and was pretty darn big. I would doubt saurophaganax is would be identical to allosaurus in some of these atributes then I would say it would put up a pretty good fight.
The compact body and the lightweight head and tail ends will surely make Saurophaganax the more agile theropod here.
That only gives it less rotational inertia, so it is able to turn quicker than its opponent. That means it can't be outflanked easily. It isn't very agile due to its mass, which means that it will take longer to accelerate while performing a hit (e.g. Arm swipe), so it will generate kinetic energy. Therefore, it won't hit with that much force as it is expected to (although it would still be very strong, all-in-all).
Hatzegopteryx: That's not even the beginning, the whole forum is disturbingly lethargic.

Spinosaurus Maroccanus: I'm quite surprised how no one has touched the Argentina 97ma thread

Hatzegopteryx: This forum needs some serious attention; I'll be at it for a moment, unless I get other tasks that do not allow me to do so.

Hatzegopteryx: It's a genetic fallacy. It's basically an argument that intends to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position.
