The brain dind't have to waste valuable space for higher cognative functions. Remeber No Weapons are allowed in this match so a one on one slugfest the caveman would kickass. Lower primates like chimps are known to be MUCH stronger per pound than man. Who's to say the caveman wouldn't also posses the same strength.
holy crap I've realized I've thought entirely too much about this..... beats any Tyson fight
What is your source for these facts about neanderthal brains? I didn't know ATOTers had mapped the brains of an extinct species whose history was, until ATOT came along, lost to the mists of time.
As for the no weapons thing...I assume (otherwise the subject is idiotic) that the astronaut cannot bring any weapons into the ring. It said nothing about fashioning them there.
<notes that the astronaut could fashion a crude crystal radio with the wire in his suit and call in close air support :evil:>
