Worldwide Land Animal Open Weight UFC Grand Prix

Whilst watching National Geographic yesterday and seeing a male lion literally kill the cubs of the rival lion that he had just killed minutes before and I got to thinking........if a Land Animal open weight UFC grand Prix were held which species would reign supreme?

Rules:

1) Open weight class

2) Only land animals or fowl. Non-walking sea creatures need not apply.

3) Only naturally fed animals (no Hormone injected Bovines or Steroid injected Horses allowed)

4) Tournament style but each winner allowed time to recover from his injuries and game plan his next opponent. Meaning this isn't a Pride style one night grand Prix.

5) All slithering things or slimy tree crawling type things can participate but they CANNOT use their poison. Only strength or submission based wins allowed. The poisonous tree frog is not considered the winner of a bout if he is swallowed by his opponent and then his opponent subsequently dies due to poisoning. We all know the poison frog is a cheating SOB. Same thing with rattlesnakes. However, Boa's & Python submission victories are considered legit wins. Gators or Croc's dragging their opponents underwater and drowning them are also considered tainted victories and will thus be DQ'd if this happens.

6) One on one only, mano y mano. None of this pack hunting bullshit allowed.


Those are the only rules that I can think of at the moment.

So which animal reigns supreme and why?

African elephant by total domination. Double the size and weight of everything, and they are brutal.

I would tend to agree with you but what about when he faces a big ass silverback gorilla that can jump on his back and render his skills useless and basically pummel the shit out of him until he's dead?

Nope.

African bull elephant is the answer.

Possibly.....but this would be a huge upset if he defeated the previously mentioned African Elephant who could curb stomp him American History X style. Possibly on par with Serra defeating GSP?

A motivated African Elephant vs a tiger should be a cakewalk for the pachyderm.
However if elephant is having "family issues" then there is always that 1% chance the Tiger wins.

Ho. Lee. Shit.

Okay so the silver back gorilla may not even stand a chance at ever even getting back mount on this beast to pummel him.

Plus that's an Indian elephant, which is significantly smaller than an African bull.
