Saurophaganax was a predator that lived at the time and place as the more famous Allosaurus. It was larger and more powerful than it's competetor, so could more easily claim rights over territories and prey. Compared to many other large therepods (excluding Allosaurus), Saurophaganax was astonishingly light for it's size, perhaps meaning it was made for speed rather than power. However, Saurophaganax wasn't weak, and could easily make a meal out of some of the largest Jurassic herbivores.
