There's no doubt that Lions could easily defeat a Tiger in a fight to the death - if both opponents were of equal stability at beginning of fight.

It is proven that although Lions do not possess amazing stamina, they are still noticeably faster than a tiger when given a good reason to get on its feet. (Ex; hunting, threatened, protecting, etc.)

Tigers may weight more than Lions, but Lions have a broader, more muscular and toned frame while Tigers have a slightly sleeker shape.

Some of the information in the chart was wrong, for example, an adult lion is fully capable of climbing a tree as proven in the wild when adult male lions chase hyena cubs into trees.

A lioness might lose against a tigeress, yet neither I nor any of my friends have ever witnessed such encounter, so I suppose this could go vice-versa.

Lions are able to take on Giraffes and Elephants in Asian and Africa, when given few choices to easier, smaller preys.

Tigers have it all
by: Anonymous

A tiger is stronger, can use both front feet as weapons (lions can use only one), and have better endurance. How does a Lion win this one again? The only way I could think of, is if the Lion has that honey badger type of personality.

Tigers are the true king, period!!!! Next
by: King Kev

If a tiger is bigger, stronger, faster, smarter, and more agile than a lion; how could it lose? Remember living in a pride a lion can depend on its pride for food and protection. While a tiger on the other hand has to fight daily for its survival. Lets be honest, a leopard could beat a cheetah because it's bigger. A lion could beat a leopard because it's bigger. And a tiger could beat a lion because it's bigger. Why would that logic change. Lions may look the part, but tigers play it. Tigers are the one true king!

Why do you think Tigers can hunt alone and lions cannot. Secondly male lions do little hunt and more often than need to fight in pairs. Brave methinks not

lion can easily defeat tiger
by: asad

Its obvious that tigers are stronger and bigger, but when it comes to fighting skills, lions are smarter(and this is the only thing, by which we can decide a winner). So, a lion can easily defeat a tiger.

Lion is too much for the Tiger. Very simple. Too strong. Loves to brawl. Way too ferocious. It will easily handle a Tiger.
