I also would tend to Alien, because I think the creature is the shit.
only considering the physical aspects, a bug could easily crack the shit out of an alien body. And it dies slowly, fights on without extremeties.
It may be a primitive creature, but is that unhandy in an 1on1 cagefight to death?
I maybe wpuld say 70% - 30% for the alien...or 60 - 40..
Alien would still win. I base this on the fact that Alien has a bigger brain housing group and moves faster. Don't get me wrong, fire beetle has some bitchen' ordinance with that plasma shit it spouts but is slow and ultimately dumb as a post without mother brain bug to call the shots.
just for the show. hal takes this one home, no doubt.
Oh, fond memories. Some years ago there was a thread at The Hypertribe about celebrity death matches, and someone proposed a fight to the finish between Hawking and Christopher Reeve. SLH and I got a good laugh out of that, and decided to ask Prof. Hawking what he thought. So, we e-mailed a link to that thread to him, with an explanation.
About a week later we got an e-mail reply from his grad student assistant that said Professor Hawking had read the thread, thought the idea was funny as hell, and there was no doubt he'd win such a match.
