Coming in second only to the tiger lions are no push over. From birth the male lion is destined to fight for his life, chased out of his pride by dominant male (usually his father) or those that take over (which means he'll leave much earlier:(). The females do most of the hunting and most people might call the males lazy, but keep in mind that when a rival male comes along and defeats the dominant male, he will kill all cubs, so the male has to be fit for the fight. Comparing it to the tiger, I'll admit the bigger cat has a slight advantage in terms of size, power, bite force etc. The lion would come out on top in speed and its ROAR!. In a fight the odds are in the tiger's favour although there have been too little recorded fights between the two cats to really establish a sure winner, basically the sample is too small! Also consider lions roll in prides, might be an unfair fight but hey what is?

Now to why I voted for the lion, first let me say I love all the cats but this ...more

It is the most deadliest animal in the world, a big killing machine and has a tremendous charging speed of 80km/hr. Huge claws and long teeth can tear any into pieces in 5 to 10 seconds. Even if tiger is larger in size but lion tear it also.

In some fights tiger has only 2-4 hits or bites and they already get beaten. It'll took about 3-5 tigers to defeat a male lion. It IS not true that it is myth that lions are better fighters. Lions fight almost everyday for food. Territory fights are rare because tigers and lions territory can cover almost 130 kilometers squared. Now of cat experts and reporters will always appear lion as a king and champion fighter. Lions have 75-95% chance to dominate Bengal tiger. Lions have even been witnessed killing 2 Siberian tigers in one fight. Tigers and lions, both have same size of claws but lions have 3 inches fanges and tiger have 4 inches ranges. But now comes the secret weopon of these 2 animals, choke hold. At this place tigers is at great disadvantage because if he goes to bit the lions neck it would just take a mouthful of mane and will not be able to bite the lion's neck while the will just have to bite the tiger's neck tightly and kill the tiger.

Lions have almost no chance to loose with a tiger. A famous tiger EXPERT Kailash Sankhala Story of the Indian tiger 1977 page 119 says a lion would beat a tiger. The tiger MIGHT have a chance to get out of this flair. Tigers because they live in deep jungles they are more flair and can swift out somehow and escape. Lion wouldn't chase it, after 300 yards it will asume dominant posture. As tigers are hevier they are slower. In some fights tiger has only 2-4 hits or bites and they already get beaten. It'll took about 3-5 tigers to defeat a male lion. It IS not true that it is myth that lions are better fighters. Lions fight almost everyday for food. Territory fights are rare because tigers and lions territory can cover almost 130 kilometers squared. Now of cat experts and reporters will always appear lion as a king and champion fighter.

A tiger is a very large and strong animal, but lions are a bit better. They have much more strength and stamina from hunting literally ALL THE TIME! This gives them a much better fighting technique as they take down animals twice their size. And if a tiger were to fight a male lion, there would be a struggle for they have thick protective manes. A tiger's size wouldn't really matter.

Please don't believe them, I love lion but even two jaguar can killed a lion and six hyena can killed a lion. The Bengal tiger can killed a lion easily, and there talking about the Siberian tiger, it can a lion in two and three slashes, tiger can killed a bear and lion cannot, now you know who is strongest in big cats. Lions are called King of the jungle because of there fur they in there neck.

Lion should be at first position it has thick teeth and lions are the third fastest cat and the Bengal tiger the ninth fastest and lions kill tigers the tiger hides from danger while lions do not hide from danger. So lions are better.

Lion is the most deadliest animal in feline family for my opinion, they are born killer that could have overpower any other animal in their weight class, peoples like to compare tiger with lion and I think lion is far more dangerous than tiger because lions have their society and tiger don't - jason97

I think lion should be at number 1 because they are more ferocious than tigers and even hunt in group and the tiger do not hunt in group. the lion can kill any herbivore even the elephant in group. But the tigers does not hunt in group and cannot kill an elephant

Lone male lions cannot take down buffaloes on their own... They need the pride to aid them... Tigers take down prey as much as twice their size... Tigers can kill grizzlies... Lions can't... Pick the winner...

A lion would beat any tiger in a fight. Lions were born fighters, in the ancient times lions always killed tigers. They r also taller than tigers. A lions diet consists of : buffalo, zebras, gazelle, wildebeest, hippos, elephants and even giraffes. Lion even kill hyenas and crocodiles.

Lions are the most dangerous cats there are the only cats to live in groups and they live in the most dangerous and wild continent in the world AFRICA.

The lion would tear the tiger to shreds if it wanted to. They are taller then tigers but tigers are heavier I love lions

I agree with the comments about lion... They are the most dangerous if all big cats! KING OF THE JUNGLE RULES TIGER!

Tiger never fights with its same species but lion does so it gives him additional experience to fight with wild cats

These may not be the fastest of all big cats but I'd say they are only by a bit the most deadliest cats in the world. Probebly one of the deadliest animals in the world. - biddiebob99

The lions are not only strong they can take down an elephant. They have been known to attack adult hippos.

They are called king of the jungle for a reason. They are not the biggest but they are the strongest of all the big cats. I could absolutely have no doubt about a LION being the king.

Lions are known to kill bengal and Siberian tigers

Lions are the ultimate warriors. Tigers are ultimate killer. How can the killer defeat the warrior. Lions are the best

Shut up you tiger fans. That's not true "tiger owns lion". It's all fake. Lions and tigers are rivals. They will fight each other till the end

Lion are the best in cat family. They are the only cats which have mane, live in group, and have hairs at end

Lions are my favorite animal and are more deadly than a tiger according to other Web sites and books

Lions are the most dangerous because it is the most seen and known so it will most likely already know how humans are and attack

Lions are the king of the jungle for a reason! There's something majestic in the way they walk (stride).
