Snow Leopard - Uncia uncia
The snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia ), also known in some instances as the ounce, is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of central Asia. The taxonomic position of this species has been subject to change. In the past, many taxonomists included the snow leopard in the genus Panthera, with several of the other largest felids, but later it was placed in its own genus, Uncia. However, most recent molecular studies place the species firmly within the genus Panthera, although the exact position remains unclear. Along with the Clouded Leopard, it represents an intermediate between so-called big cats and smaller specimens as it can neither roar nor purr. Well known for its beautiful fur, the snow leopard has a soft grey coat with ringed spots and rosettes of black on brown. Its tail is heavy with fur and the bottom of its paws are covered with fur for protection against snow and cold. Snow leopards are smaller than the other big cats but, like them, exhibit a range of sizes, generally weighing between 27 and 55 kg (60 and 120 lb), with an occasional large male reaching 75 kg (170 lb) and small female of under 25 kg (55 lb). Body length ranges from 75 to 130 centimetres (30 to 50 in), with the tail adding a further 80 to 100 cm (31 to 39 in) to that length. These cats stand about 60 cm (24 in) at the shoulder.

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.

I actually think the mandril has good chances i dare say 50/50
Better grappler, better canines, very robust, thick fur, aggression, and at least some predatory know how.
Opinions? (please reply thoroughly not just cat wins imo if you favor the cat)

Snow leopard wins. Larger, and much faster and more agile. Although the mandrill has tough canines, SL's size advantage and weaponry will allow it to succeed

The snow Leopard has a good size advantage and it is probably more muscular (primate muscles usually make up 40% of their weight). And it has deadly claws, but the bite damage is balanced and the Mandrill can grab things, but I still back the Leopard, because it's bigger.

Snoe leopard avg. 60 to 120lbs for males
Mandrill50 to 110 or 55 to 77lbs
Freak sl can br 170 lb
Freak mandrills 120
A parity fight is possible here. Jinfen for the last god damn time more muscle mass does not equate stronger.

I didn't say it's stronger, but more muscular also helps in agility.

This isn't gonna be hit and run. It's going to turn into a grappling match.

So what? So may we use an exceptionally large mandrill against a common snow leopard ? It's not fair.

And there muscle mass doesn't help? A muscular spine can be helpful for strong pawswipes.

No. The spine aids in agility and flexibility.
