Team 1, of course. Team 1 was bigger. And zhengchengtyranus was very small. Torvosaurus was too weak. So that means team 1 wins. Saurophoganax was strong and agile. Cacharodontosaurus was big and strong, and also more of a SUPER hunter.

You are underestimating team 2. There may have been a 38 ft long torvosaurus from Portugal that are overall bigger than saurophaganax yet are not as big or powerful as trex. We have yet to see the maximum size of Zhuchengtyrannus. They could be as giganotosaurus. Yes, the Carnosaurs might have been strong, but for all we know, Saurophaganax could have been only 30 ft long. Yes, I agree that team 1 could have won, but if team 2 had trex and the Portuguese torvosaurus's, the carnosaur team would get powned.

Team 1 Owns.
Saurophaganax is bigger than every single Torvosaurus, it's also the 2nd biggest Allosaurid after Epanterias.
Carcharodontosaurus is far better than Zhuchengtyrannus.
Reasons:
It's bigger, stronger, has a more lethal bite, is a better hunter, and it's also a better fighter (Carch fought Spino).
Saurophaganax would kill Torvosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus would easily defeat Zhuchengtyrannus.

Hoho. Carchar having a more lethal bite than zhuchengtyrannus is not true. Carchar could only slice through meat. Zhuchengtyrannus could crush bone and slice through meat. And Spino is a big wimp at least compared to other theropods.
Epanterias is not as heavy as a giant Torvosaurus, so what makes Saurophaganax any different?

Wrong. Tyrannosaurs aren't build for knife-like cutting properties, and Spinosaurus woudl destroy Tarbosaurus and Zhucengtyrannus is a few minutes. Saurophaganax and Torvosaurus are two different creatures, Sauro is an Allosaurid while Torvo is a Megalosaurid. Torvo has the bite, Sauro has the size, speed, stength, and weaponry. Team 1 owns.

Are you saying that tyrannosaurids could NOT cut through flesh just because their teeth weren't built for it?

But how on earth could a Tyrannosaurus crush the bones of an animal if it couldn't even scathe the flesh? Flesh goes around the bones, and anything with sharp teeth can rip at flesh.

Zhuchengtyrannus is known from a maxilla and a dentary, both of which are completely dwarfed by those of T. rex specimen Sue and even Stan for that matter.
Sue and Stan, as well as Albertosaurus and the holotype of Daspletosaurus ALL suggest lengths of 10 meters or less for Zhuchentyrannus...

Torvosaurus is even worse. The largest specimens (120cm skull) reached similar lengths (<10 meters) but are actually no bigger overall than a 9 meter Allosaurus.

_____

Tam 1 completely dwarfs Team 2 (combined weights of ~12.5 tonnes and ~6.5 tonnes respectively)... the outcome is obvious.

Indeed; Carcharodontosaurus is a very massive animal. We should not go basing the outcome on solely size.

Di you even read my comment? I said T.rex's teeth weren't really build for cutting meat, it's used to crush bones. So, it just penetrates the meat and crush the bones.

You said that contributors are cowards. Now you're talking about dinosaurs; therefore, you're trying to contribute, or, as you put it, you're trying to be a coward.

And did you even read my comment, because you certainly don't understand it?
