2 Smilodon populators
Smilodon, often called a saber-toothed cat or wrongly a saber-toothed tiger, is an extinct genus of machairodonts. This saber-toothed cat was endemic to North America and South America, living from near the beginning through the very end of the Pleistocene epoch (2.5 mya—10,000 years ago). Smilodon populator ("Smilodon the Devastator"), 1 million-10,000 years ago; occurred in the eastern parts of South America and was the largest species of all machairodonts. It was much larger than its cousins, S. fatalis and S. gracilis, possessing a massive chest and front legs, and is the largest known variety of saber-toothed cat. It was more than 1.40 m (55 in) high at the shoulder, 2.6 m (100 in) long on average and had a 30 cm (12 in) tail. Smilodon populator was substantially heavier and larger than any extant felid, with a body mass range of 220–360 kg. Particularly large specimens of S. populator almost certainly exceeded 400 kg in body mass. Its upper canines reached 30 cm (12 in) and protruded up to 17 cm (6.7 in) out of the upper jaw. Genetic evidence suggests that Smilodon populator and other members of the genus diverged from the main lineage of modern cats (subfamily Felinae) around 14-18 million years ago.

Australovenator wintonensis
Australovenator (meaning "southern hunter") is a genus of allosauroid theropod dinosaur from late Albian (Early Cretaceous)-age rocks of Australia. It is known from partial cranial and postcranial remains. Australovenator is based on AODL 604, a partial skeleton including a left dentary, teeth, partial forelimbs and hindlimbs, a partial right ilium, ribs, and gastralia. Australovenator was described in 2009 by Dr. Scott Hocknull and colleagues. The type species is A. wintonensis, in reference to nearby Winton. A phylogenetic analysis found Australovenator to be an allosauroid carnosaurian, with similarities to Fukuiraptor and carcharodontosaurids. In the analysis, it was shown to be the sister taxon of the Carcharodontosauridae. The ankles of Australovenator and Fukuiraptor are similar to the Australian talus bone known as NMVP 150070 that had previously been identified as belonging to Allosaurus sp., and it is likely that this bone represents Australovenator or a close relative of it. The 6.5-foot-tall (2-meter-tall) meat-eater is the most complete theropod—a group of two-legged dinos related to birds—ever found in Australia and maybe even in the world, Hocknull said in July 2009. Nicknamed Banjo, the velociraptor-like dinosaur had three slashing claws on both hands and larger arms than its cousin, Tyrannosaurus rex. Australovenator was a medium-sized allosauroid. According to Hocknull, it was 2 metres (6.6 ft) tall at the hip and 6 metres (20 ft) long, with a weight of about 500-1000 kg.

Small Australovenator(500-700 kilograms or so) would lose, but large Australovenator(850+ kilograms and more) would win...

this is comparable to the 2 lions vs utahraptor thread only Australovenator seems to have the size advantage. I agree with broly on this one, a large Australo would win, but it would be very close, for a smaller one it's vice versa.

I expected, that tons of brainless mammal fanboys will move their useless bodies to this theard, to vote Smilodons, and to shin on this topic by their biasm, like yigit05, who is really annoying with his biasm towards felids. I vote Australovenator, using a large one, who stands a chance.

Australovenator WintonesisSmilodon Popularis
6 m.(20 ft.) long
Mass: ~ 500 - 1000 kg. I think 1 ton would be fair here

Australovenator is larger, more powerful, more agile and faster.
However, it is outnumbered here
2,6 m. long
Mass - 400 kg.

The smilodons have a numerous advantage here.
Everything else is Australovenator's edge


Outcome

I voted for the raptor in the other thread, but I think the saber tooth cats can win this. These cats are specially adapted to take down large prey, so I think that nixes most of the size advantage of the theropod. I don't think this would be an easy fight, though. One of those cats is going to get mangled or killed, possibly one killed and the other torn up badly.

I'd slightly favor the Smilodon here, as their numerical advantage would allow them to traverse the dinosaur, shared, then go in for a neck bite while it focuses on one, not mentioning they are quite muscular, allowing them to keep a good hold on the Dinos neck, although they risk being ripped open by it's teeth, and it's loose skin could help as well.

The cats would probably win. One would distract it, the other would wrestle it to the ground.

Sure it does. These cats wrestled much larger four-legged animals to the ground. A two-legged animal would be much easier to knock over.

No it doesn't, how the heck can you overpower something larger than you?
