Bolg vs Lurtz Can't Post

Both played by the same actor. Ones an Orc, the son of a powerful chieftan.
The other is the first of the Uruk hai bred by Saruman. Both large and full of muscle, who do you think will win?

I say Bolg because he has his own intentions, and l clearly has had more experience than Lurtz, who is merely like a robot made by Saruman to obey his Orders.

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.

hmm [In reply to] Can't Post

After watching both Lurtz and Bolg's fighting styles, I think Lurtz might get the win.

Lurtz is alot more primal and his speed and drive is a deadly combination.

Bolg tends to do alot of throwing and trys to grab more then doing damage,where as Lurtz goes fullbore for the Kill.

The fight in all honesty will probably end with them both taking eachother down,but just on chance,I would put a bet on Lurtz.

Bolg wins easy... [In reply to] Can't Post

Bolg is 7'1, Lurtz is 6'4 officially, making Bolg much bigger. Bolg is also just as fast and seems to be more experienced.
Think Lurtz can take more pain? (losing arm and getting stabbed) Think again! Bolg took having his armor literally sewn into his body, just as if not more painful.
All this of course besides the fact that Bolg stalemated Legolas, who has never been stopped in the history of the LOTR/Hobbit film series.
So yes, Bolg stomps! :3

Size matters...

Aragorn only had a tough time with Lurtz because Aragorn had already expended energy fighting off about two dozen Orcs already. Even so, Aragorn was a superior fighter.

Whereas Bolg fought Legolas to a standoff and still was able to walk away from it.

So I don't think Bolg would have any difficulty with Lurtz at all.
