Exactly.
This is also not just about sabre skills. GG has no use of the force and Maul is a Padwan. Taking the same point of what Dooku did to Obi and Anakin Yoda would do ten fold

Yoda >> Dooku
Obi+Ani > GG, Maul

Force blasts alone would finish, no need for Yoda to have to duel. Even if he did Yoda is reknowned for being amongst the elite duelists along with Mace and Palpatine.

Quote:
Yoda vs General Grievous w/ Darth Maul. Interesting matchup. Although Yoda would beat either of these guys head on, I give GG and Darth Maul the advantage. Winner General Grievous w/ Darh Maul

Explain? Grievous is a robot and Maul is a Padwan. Grievous has no use of the force and Maul has next to nothing. Yoda is on a movie time line the greatest knowledge of the force and top 3 sabre duelist. Obi killed Maul one one one and toyed with Grievous. Obi could probably keep up with the two on his own.

I will admit, I am not even close to a star wars buff. I was under the impression Darth Maul had considerable use of the force (nowhere near Yoda's level), but enough to be useful in a 2 on 1 battle. The fact that the two fighters trumped together would have a good reason to battle their opponent also helped their cause. This one was very close to based on the limited knowledge I had. If someone can provide a little bit more info I would greatly appreciate it so I can really make the right call.

Wouldn't a machine have diminished functions in snow?

Also reference where Yoda can't function well in the cold? He did retreat to a cold swamp

He's not really a robot he's an android that is half humanoid.

As for the Yoda part, I'd like to take the time to say that it was said in jest. I don't think he'd have trouble with the cold. I'm sure he'd wear a Jedder.


Which is a Jedi sweater.

Regardless, he still has no knowledge of the force

I did a little more research on the star wars debate and I'm actually going to stick with my original ruling. Ridiculously close and I definitely see the pro yoda argument, but i'll stick with the duo. The way I see it, there has to be a very clear reason as to why a single could beat out a trump and (still admitting I am not a star wars buff), that reason is not clear enough with yoda for me.

Don't need prep, Yoda can detect darkness. Can't sneak attack that green mofo. He bamboozled an ambush. Master Yoda has jedi spidey senses

And explain how Dooku can take Ani and Ben and Yoda couldn't take 2 lesser sith? Yet Yoda sent Dooku packing
