Tiger always wins this.

A fully grown Bengal Tiger is bigger and stronger than a full grown male Lion...and a male Tiger can actually hunt as he doesn't have his ho's do all the work for him.

Are you sure?

The Sibirian is but the Bengal


Btw depends on what kind of Tiger and if it's a male or Female Lion.

The Male could be Save if it's mane is large enough.


Hmm going by weight your possibly right:
Large Male lions rarely weight more then 250 Kg
Grown up Bengals 180-272 Kg

Sibirian however: large males weighing up to 384 kg

In my opinion the it is 50/50 the male lion, as its main purpose in life is to fight other males for territory and such, has a body built for fighting with other large felines where as tigers are solitary hunters.

I reckon a female tiger would far outclass a female lion, but when it comes to males tigers arent as experienced in fighting large felines, plus they usually kill with a bite to the back of the neck, the lions mane disrupting the accuracy of the bite as it is very thick.

Sorry if this is old info im new here.

This, though the outcome should usually be in the lion's favor rather than 50/50. They've had actual lion vs tiger fights in the past, and usually the lion wins.

I'll just elaborate on what Koerdis already said.

First of all, although the tiger is the superior hunter, the lion is the superior fighter cause all they do is fight off other lions that encroach on their territory. This gives them the advantage as far as experience goes, because hunting is not fighting. Also, lions are more levelheaded in a fight, which makes a difference. I know it sounds stupid to talk about animals keeping their cool, but it's true; in general tigers are nervous around lions but not vice versa.

Second of all, tigers are accustomed to killing with a neck bite, but you can't kill a lion that way unless you're a T-rex or something. When lions fight each other they don't go for the neck, they go for a spot right behind the foreleg, probably cause there's a major artery there, and just because it's a crippling wound. But tigers don't know this, they go for the throat and get a mouthful of hair and then get owned.

Tigers have stronger hind limbs, because they need to leap and ambush. Male lions are weaker behind but much more built in the forelimbs, which is more well-suited to combat.

Lion wins. Mane protection and because knowing how to hunt and survive does not equal fighting off other males for territory. Lions fight for dem ho's.

This tiger was captured in India and went against a lion after being in captivity for only few days. Don't tell me that these few days changed the tiger's behavior in which it could not deliver a fatal neck bite.
It was the Tiger's fight and he knew it. He sprang at the staggering Lion, took a fearful chop on the nose without flinching and set his teeth into the African's hairy throat. They wrestled desperately, and the Lion's heavy mane saved him from suffocation. Great mouthfuls of long coarse hair catching in the Tiger's teeth not only preventing him from getting a death grip, but so interfered with his with his respiration that he had to release the hold, whereupon the Lion swatted him with a tremendous uppercut and sent him tumbling twenty feet away.

The lion's mane, not possessed by the female, is evidently such a weapon of defense; it is a excellent means of protection against the bites which the male lions try to inflict on each other's necks when fighting for the females; consequently those males with the strongest manes have the greatest advantage in the sexual struggle.

ďDown sprang Caesar, determined to seize the offensive, but before he could do so, Bobby had battled his way through Caesar's paws, grabbed his mane so stubbornly that he couldn't move. For the next couple of minutes each struggled and strained for an advantage, but Bobby's hold was so tenacious that they only succeeded in twisting a little. With the cameras continuing to grind and getting nothing but a little harmless tug of warÖ Energy spent, the exhausted Bobby tried to roll away from Caesar, but Caesar's hold now was as firm as Bobby's which had been on his mane. Seeing this turn in affairs, I dashed into the cage. Already Caesar's jaws had crunched Bobby's neck and when I got there Caesar was shaking Bobby's limp, bloody head and throat from side to side. Bobby's eyes were turning starey. He was dead and it was only two minutes since I had dashed the ammonia into his face. I was keenly sorry that I had done it, but in thinking it over I became convinced that my part had been negligible. The lion is frequently the superior; he doubtless would have been the winner in this case no matter what I had done.Ē

If so, it is conceivable that a single male lion attacked by a pack of hyenas could reduce injury with the help of its mane. Manes protect males in interaspecific in other species. It may additionally confer advantages by limiting wounding in the neck region.

Male lions are the only cats with manes. This collar of long, thick hair covers the head, except the face, and the neck down to the shoulders and chest. The mane makes the male look even bigger and stronger than he is. It also protects him during fights. The long, thick hair softens the blows of his foes.

The most distinctive feature of the male lion is its mane, a collar of long, thick fur. An adolescent male's mane will begin to grow at 18 months, after which it will continue to grow and darken until the age of five. A visual indicator of gender and power, the mane also serves to protect the lion's neck from other lions.

The mane helps protect the lionís neck during fighting and make him appear larger to competitors

Their mane serves a number of purposes: a) it identifies him as a mature male to other lions, even at a distance b) it gives an appearance of increased size with little weight cost c) the condition of the mane conveys the level of health and vigour to female lions d) it can help protect the head and neck area in fights with other lions.

Samantha Stephens, says the lions mane might not make a big difference, but it might be that crucial amount of difference.

ďThe mane is strictly a male attribute and gives lionís their majestic auraÖ It acts almost like a fencing mask, absorbing paw swipes aimed at the head and necks during fights between rivals. When maneís grow to big for both rivalís, the fight can last up to hourís due to the mane protecting the main arterieís, little to nothing can be done to maleís who have maneís that grown larger than others for itís main reason is for combat .Ē

The mane plays an important role in the lionís life. While a long mane that blows easily in the wind may be difficult to hide when hunting an alert zebra, it is a distinct advantage in defenseÖ That same mane gives his neck a good bit of protection in case the intruder does not turn away and chooses to challenge the resident lion for his position.

Male lions are larger than females and possess a voluminous mane which contrast with the sleek pelage on other parts of the bodyÖ The distinctive colors and sizes of manes may also help animals to identify individuals. An important secondary function of the mane is one of protection during fights. The dense mat of hair absorbs blows and harmlessly tangles claws in a part of the body towards which most social contact is directed; bites too, may leave an opponent with a mouth full of hair rather than skin.

There is no direct evidence, but if we examine the probabilities in the case of a confrontation between the two some inferences can be drawn. In a fight would de unable to get close to the vital joint of a lionís neck because of his thick mane, but the tiger is vulnerable to the lion. The film showed that the tiger was at an immediate disadvantage. Tigers use a throat grip as their primary means of killing and the lion's thick protective mane prevented the tiger gaining a hold on the throat joint. On the other hand, the tiger had no special protection, so was vulnerable to attack. In this fight, the tiger was killed. In any inter-species confrontation lions would also have the advantage of the who pride. But in my opinion a tiger is no match even for a single lion of equal strength. In any inter-species confrontation lions would also have the advantage of support from members of the whole pride. But in my opinion a tiger is no match even for a single lion of equal strength.

Now, as to a lion and tiger, I should say that the tiger is the more powerful of the two. At the same time, it is more cowardly, has more of the slinking nature of the cat, and is more treacherous. I believe Iím fully qualified to state, as Iíve had them both on me. I bear the teeth marks of a lion that shut his jaws tight on my legs. But it isnít the teeth of the big cats trainers fear so much. It is the claws, being hooked, tear out the flesh and sinew as they are withdrawn. When a lion goes at a trainer he starts right towards him, with no subterfuge, mouth open and tail as stiff as a poker. A tiger cringes and crawls until he makes his spring. In a fair fight it would be hard to guess which animal would come off victor, and much would depend, I think on the one that got the first good hold. The lion also is protected around the neck by the heavy mane, which is an advantage.

Done before. Depends on sizes.

Equal size (Bengal for example) Lion has the advantage due to fighting experience and mane.

But with a Siberian Tiger the Lion gets owned by sheer size difference.

No tiger in history has been documented fighting a lion with a full battle mane, the only account's exsisting protain's 70% of tiger's killing lion's, are of male tiger's killing female lion's an the other 30% never had a full battle mane, which is interperted into a lion that has a over grown mane like these...

Lion territory, being that tiger's are solitary an there are 100's of account's of lion's killing tiger's 1 on 1, a tiger has no chance of competeing directly with lion's. If they do release tiger's in the wild with lion's, they have to go by the same golden rule of cheetah's an leopard's when confronted by a lion they have to run to survive. Tiger's arnt neccisarily afraid of lion's though that would be there down fall, in an attempt to show dominace by roaring in a district to claim territory, it would cost the tiger his life, when he alert's lion's who usally live like these in coaltion's here...
