Pretty good match-up.

I'd say that, despite being more advanced evolution-wise, the Albertosaurus would have a hard time dispensing of Allosaurus. I'm gonna say:

Allo: 50%

Aberto: 50%

Allo was probably faster and had long, powerful arms, but a weaker bite. Alberto had a larger brain as well, but that probably wouldnt matter.

Albertosaurus is a long legged albertosaurine. It is a weaker but faster version of tyrannosaurines such as tyrannosaurids. Allosaurus though is going to be about twice the size of Albertosaurus, thats way to big.

allosaurus fragilis is only like 30 ft long guys. they were about the same size. albertosaurus is pretty much a quicker, scaled down version of tyrannosaurus. it's jaws are still a buts load stronger than allo's and it MIGHT have been just as quick.
albertosaurus 65%

allo 35%

There is an Allosaurus specimen about 9.7m long, and another once called Epanterias 12m long. Allosaurus is going to be at least twice as large as Albertosaurus, although at close to equal sizes i would definatly back the Albertosaurus.

N deres also dat vertebrae i cited, UMNH 10781, which is decsribed by carpenter et al (2005) n comes from a 11 m specimen. U ALWAYS forget it!

Vat u call epanterias amplexus (XD!) is actually a full grown specimen of a. fragilis. Dat is, e. amplexus is a junior synonym of a. fragilis. Da same applies on antrodemus n labrosaurus too
Check out theropod database by mortimer

(AMNH 5767; holotype of Epanterias amplexus) axis, sixth or seventh cervical centrum, first dorsal neural arch, coracoid (328 mm long), distal metatarsal IV (Cope, 1878)
