Depends of a lot of variables, how experienced are they?, how tired are they?, does Mandalorian have some edge? ie surprise, what level of fitness are they?

If an experienced, well rested Mandalorian at peak of physical fitness gets the edge on a Jedi then he/she might beat him/her. Likewise an inexperienced Jedi would probably be in trouble against Mandalrians.

Also type of Jedi would come into play, Knights are combat experts, but lack force lift/push, while a Consular could push Mandalorian away then lift them and escape.

Also I noted that you opened two copies of exact same thread minutes apart, why?
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

IMO, no, seems to me like Mandalorians are 100% about fighting and 0% about winning. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.

Yes they can beat "a jedi". However, If you throw a fully honed Mandalorian against specific force users such as Darth Vader, Caedus Sidious, Bane, Malgus, Luke Skywalker (when jedi master,) Mara Jade Skywalker, Jaina Solo, Kyle Katarn, Yoda etc.

I wouldn't want to be the Mandalorian. However, some random jedi? Sure.

It really all depends on level of experience and the situ... so we are referring to your average Mandalorian warrior versus your average Jedi Knight.

If we assume that both of our combatants are experienced and at their peak in skill and physical capability, with access to their traditional armaments meeting in an unprepared fashion I say the outcome is unsure...

Does the Jedi reliance on using only the Lightsaber decrease their chance of victory when faced with an arsenal of different gadgets and weapons (flamethrowers, rocket darts, poison gas, explosives, projectile weapons and more...) ?

Certainly from an ethical standpoint a Jedi is bound by his or her code, which dissallows the use of the Force to directly harm a foe, a Mandalorian is bound by no such code and may be as ruthless as necessary to secure victory. As a counterpoint the Jedi has the Force and all the abilities that it endows.

I don't think I could claim to know who would win, but it'd be one hell of a fight!

I really wish people stop considering mandalorians special.

Yes they can beat a jedi just like everyone else can depending on the situation.

Jedi are powerfull, skillfull but hardly invincebol.

A untrained civilion could kill a jedi if he gets a lucky shot.(same with sith)

The main advantage of the jedi lies in the fact there very well trained.

Darth traya sayed it herself.
That the mandalorian time was gone and future mandalorian would die to easly to a jedi blade.

Manadalorian's are capebol warriors.
So are troopers, bounty hunter, commando's etc

Fighting a jedi is like fighting a shao-lin monk difficult but winable.

Beside if you know there combat style(and many do) you just bring counters.

After all a lightsaber isnt going to stop: mines rockets flametrowers etc.
It only stop blasters(and if you rewatch the sith intro move you see it even stop ship blasters but only blasters)
knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

I look at it this way, on any given sunday, the any dog can have his day.

There are so many variables that come into who wins and who loses it's not even funny.

Is it just a random encounter with an average jedi vs an average mando or smuggler, or trooper, or imperial guard or just joe schmoe. Yeah it could go either way.

Is the mando trying to capture the jedi. Did he prepare the battlefield, is he lying in wait, does he have traps within traps, is he kitted out for it. More often than not, jedi is going down.

Could jango or boba fett catch somebody like luke skywalker. Yeah i think they could if they carefully prepared and had an airtight strategy with plenty of back-ups, plans within plans with a lot of leeway for different responses, yeah i think they could do it.

It's all about strategy, tactics, how well you can counter abilities, if you prepare the battle area ahead of time.

again OP, you are asking for an absolute based on so many variables, it's impossible to calculate. Can it be done? Yes. Will it be done, well thats up to a lot of things.

No, or at least no in the sense that if the Jedi in question is a fully trained Knight and knows what he is doing. Against a padawan though?...Ya I could see the win for the Mando there why not? But that doesn't mean he wouldn't have trouble, a padawan is still a Jedi who is trained since a toddler in using The Force and being in CQC.

However against a fully trained Jedi Knight/Master that actually knows what they are doing in combat? No, I mean that was sort of proven with Luke and Obi-Wan against Jango/Boba.
