All this classic versus upgrade, and having classic win because he's the "classic" is as about as lame as the crap they continue to do with the T-Rex in the Jurassic Park movies to appease the fans. Its horrible story telling and pandering at best. Dont get me wrong, the super predator beating the classic one just to push it as the new baddie, is stupid too. But at least its not eye rolling trex breaking through a spinosaurus skeleton lame. Easily one of the most garbage moments in the Jurassic World movie.
It's not that the classic Pred dies, they die in all the movies, but it's how he dies.
Predator's are super strong, great warriors and skilled hunters, but they have made them look weak and useless in 2 movies now, that's the issue.
I'd be totally fine with the Upgrade killing the classic if it was a hard fought fight, with the classic holding his own for a while, instead of one hit and dead, like a little bitch.
