Wild tigers are solitary hunters and typically feed on medium- to large-sized herbivores. When taking on larger prey they usually bite into the throat and use their forelimbs to hold onto the prey and wrestle it to the ground, holding on until it dies of strangulation. Tigers have extremely large canines (up to 10 cm, compared to about 5 cm in both grizzlies and gorillas). A swipe of their claw is powerful enough to smash the skulls of domestic cattle, and break the backs of sloth bears.

Grizzly bears are the heaviest of the three species (up to 360 kg/790 lb, compared to 306 kg/675 lb in tigers and 180 kg/397 lb in gorillas). They will typically hunt alone or in small groups. Grizzlies are omnivorous, but will sometimes hunt large prey such as moose, elk, caribou, deer, and bison. Grizzlies tend to go for the throat, but will also use their claws to pin their prey down or rip it apart. When faced with a threat, grizzly bears may stand on their hind legs and use their front legs in defense.

Gorillas are social animals and are omnivorous, rarely if ever hunting large prey. They are capable of climbing trees (adult tigers and grizzly bears typically cannot climb trees at all), and have the strongest bite force of all three species. When fighting silverback gorillas will use their teeth as well as their fists, and can use their dexterous hands to pin their opponents down or grab their limbs. Their upper body strength is six to ten times as strong as a human's.

I voted Gorillas because they are much more intelligent and dexterous, and I've seen one rip a large cat to pieces.

Bear. It can tank the most damage, and it deals out as much as either of the other two.
