    My money is on the lion because as you know it is larger then the tiger. Also they are stronger. Then again the tiger is quicker and could probably get a quick scratch in here or there. But once it gets into a real fight the lion's strength would make it dominant.

    Hope this helps!

    I think a lion would win.  That's why he's the king of the jungle.

    Yeah, a lion would definitely win. No doubt.

    I suppose some specifics such as the type of lion and tiger and their genders would come into play, but I would have to go with the lion.

    A male lion would beat a male tiger; hard to say about females, and here's why. 

    There is a show on the Discovery Channel or something, I can't remember.  The show did computer modeling of these sorts of animal fights (others: wolf vs. cougar, Bear v. wolves, etc.). 

    With the lion vs. tiger fight, the tiger has the physical advantage--it is on average, much larger than a male lion.  However, that gap is more than mode up for by the fact that tigers are generally solitary and hunt by ambush.  Male lions don't even do hunting--what they do is fight other males for dominance in the pride.  That training would make all the difference. 

    With females, lionesses do not fight each other in the way that male lions do, and they may not (in a fight with tigresses) have much or any "training" advantage.

    The tiger would win, male lions are notoriously lazy, they rarely hunt, and depend on the females for just about everything. The only time you truly see a male lion fight is for territory. Tigers on the other hand because of their solitary lifestyle have to be quicker and more agile, the males have to be stronger because they cannot hang off the coattails of the females.
