When comparing the largest reliable specimens. Even the more average specimens tend to outweigh the animals above. There are estimates that Giga could get up to 8200kg, but those are based upon a dentary fragment, and those dont scale isometrically with the rest of the animal. If we took that into consideration, we might as well also consider UCMP as valid as well.

This is due in part to the fact that Tyrannosaurus rex has almost comically wide proportions compared to other theropods. That is best displayed here:

Here's a comapison of the animals on top of one another:

It should be noted that this information IS subject to change as more discoveries are made.


EDIT:

Here's a comparison between Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus:

The actual model for the Spinosaurus shouldn't be considered accurate, as its legs are too small, but the size of the legs should be independant of the girth of the body. Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.
