    There are several videos online of tigers getting into fights with sloth bears their size, sometimes a bit smaller.

    The sloth bears hold their ground and can defend themselves.

    Brown bears are a lot bigger then any tiger species, and Kodiak bears are simply huge.

    I guarantee that if both animals are adults and healthy the brown bear takes it, a tiger wouldn't even try to get into it with a Kodiak. Go look up a video of a grizzly next to a Kodiak, and then imagine that with a tiger which is even smaller.

    The bear would win.

    The Romans pitted bears against lions. The lions made all the noise of roaring and looked fierce. Until one blow from the bear caved in the lion's head.

    A large grizzly would be too much. A Kodiak Bear is really just a subspecies of Grizzly bear that lives on the coast and eats lots of salmon to grow to enormous size.

    The Siberian tiger only hunt the smaller female bears and only by ambush, not in a head to head confrontation. That is why bears are wary of any movement from behind them.

    Most likely the bear. All the skin and fur around the neck area is too thick for a tiger to bite. And if the bear gets his arms around the tiger, he could easily crush him. Although tigers are almost silent when approaching a bear, bears have a better sense of smell than most dogs, and would detect the tiger before the tiger detected the bear, lol. Oh, and bears can run 30-40 mph...you can’t out run them.
