Human - Homo sapiens
Height; 162-175 cm (5.4-5.9 ft)
Weight; 137-172 lbs (62-78 kg)
Like most primates, humans are social by nature; however, humans are particularly adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. Humans create complex social structures composed of cooperating and competing groups, ranging in scale from small families and partnerships to species-wide political, scientific and economic unions. Social interactions between humans have also established an extremely wide variety of traditions, rituals, ethics, values, social norms, and laws which form the basis of human society. Humans also have a marked appreciation for beauty and aesthetics which, combined with the human desire for self-expression, has led to cultural innovations such as art, literature and music.
Humans exhibit sexual dimorphism in many characteristics, many of which have no direct link to reproductive ability, however most of these characteristic do have a role in sexual attraction, for example a higher level of androgenic hormones such as testosterone, makes it easier for most men than most women to develop their muscles. Men tend to be taller than women, but there are many people of both sexes who are in the mid-height range for the species.

Mandrill - Mandrillus sphinx
The mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Old World monkey (Cercopithecidae) family, closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the drill. It is found in southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo. Mandrills mostly live in tropical rainforests and forest-savanna mosaics. They live in groups called "hordes". Mandrills have an omnivorous diet consisting mostly of fruits and insects. Their mating season takes place from June to October. Males average 25–35 kg (55-77 lb); females are less than half that weight (11–14 kg, or 25-30 lb). Unusually large males can weigh 50 kg (110 lb). The average male is 81–90 cm (32–36 in) and the female is 56–66 cm (22–26 in), with the tail adding another 5–8 cm (2–3 in). They can survive up to 31 years in captivity. Females reach sexual maturity at about 3.5 years. The mandrill has one of the greatest sexual dimorphisms among the primates.

To be honest, I think that a really strong and big Mandrill is more than capable of killing the human (assuming this is an average human) with it's long teeth that it is equipped with:

I think that an average human will panic at the sight of it's large canines. But the mandrill's downfall is that it is way smaller than the human and it will eventually get bought down to the ground and killed. But I'm not sure how a human is going to kill a mandrill (maybe stomp on it's neck once it's on the floor), and the mandrill can very easily just bite through the human's neck and cause bad blood loss.




For now I think maybe human 6/10 but a large mandrill will probably make it a tie or might even probably win. At parity this is an easy win for the mandrill (50 kg mandrill)

the mandrill will most likely be able to kill an average human rather than vice versa.

I think a determined human would pin and kill a Mandrill. However I dont see them surviving the aftermath without medical assistance. A bite from the Mandrill would probably cause fatal blood loss over time so I guess I would call this match a draw.

Personally I think a determined average guy [physically] will win more often than not considering the average skinny guy weighs like 160lbs / 72kgs and stands about 5'9'' / 175cm whereas male mandrills average just about 66lbs / 30kgs. If it´s an aggressive man who doesn´t hesitate to fight a non-human primate he´ll probably kick and stomp the mandrill to death. Some people seem to forget how strong human legs are. The mandrill´s teeth are certainly (more) dangerous weapons though. A bite will cause great blood loss and make most people panic so it comes down to the human´s psychology imo.

If the man is determined and if he doesnt panic he can win

You guys must have forgot this video I posted way back when. The bone density and explosive muscle fibers on this guy are nothing to be played with.

It is very unfair, to give the human clothes.

it's natural for us to wear clothes, every user reading my post is wearing his clothes (at least i hope so), and if such a fight happens in reality i have no doubts that the man would be dressed and not walking naked among people, or even in the forest.

Clothes won't prevent those canines from perfurating skin, they're not armour, they're just clothes, whether the human is wearing any clothes or not has little impact on the outcome.

And even though the canines can look very intimidating, they will mostly not be readily lethal, and the human having an strength advantage over the monkey may as well give him an edge.

I never said clothes will stop the monkey's canines, I was just correcting a statement.

It´s not unfair at all. It´s natural for us to use our environment to build clothings and weapons. Human match ups are already made fair by ignoring our ability to turn anything into a lethal weapon.

@TIKI: That´s no impressive footage imo. Get on all fours and push something the same way. You´re probably going to build even more force than the mandrill depending on your weight.
