biggest predators (Allosauridae wins)

I assume they are saying "Monster von Minden" is ca. 150% the size of Allosaurus fragilis. Sounds like this puts it very close to the size of Allosaurus amplexus.
Therefore, I have to conclude that Family Allosauridae wins as biggest theropods in both the Jurassic and Cretaceous.

P.S. At least for now anyway. Could be challenged by new forms of tyrannosaurid, megalosaurid, or spinosaurid.

After all (very few) I have read about it (local press) it strongly
resembles Allosarus - being 150% as large...
