No, hyenas cannot bite down with 1,200 pounds of pressure ever. That's been debunked.
The wolf will get in more bites due to agility, but the hyena's greater durability will nullify that.
Meanwhile, the spotted hyena's bite even once will cripple the grey wolf, and after that, it's just an easy game of biting. Hyena will absolutely tear a grey wolf any day of the week.
The only way that this fight can be even remotely close is if we use a male spotted hyena against an alpha male grey wolf.
A female spotted hyena is way too much for any wolf, or really any dog at all, to handle.
You guys are saying things that you guys don't know. To say that the hyena has the strongest bite of all mammals is literally ridiculous, because it is literally believing in everything the mainstream media says to you; would you believe that a human would survive if his head were put under the wheel of a truck, if the media had also said that, too? Common sense is that the larger the skull, the more pressure can be put on the bite — and that is, the larger an animal's skull, the greater the bite. But in fact, I wouldn't even have to mention that to prove that a hippo's bite is much stronger and much more deadly than a hyena's. Just look at the two mouths wide open and draw the conclusions yourself... I saw a documentary in which some three hyenas wouldn't even dare get in the way of a hippopotamus — as soon as I find it in my folder, I'll post it here.
Hyena both rounds.
Round 1: Hyena is bigger, stronger (strongest bite force of any mammal), more durable, and has a quite a lot of stamina (their hearts are very impressive and they can continue exerting themselves at extreme length). Hyena gets one bit in and it's probably over. Wolf has agility, and could get several bites in, but Hyenas can and do survive bites from Lions so it's like to just tank these and continue fighting.
Round 2: Hyenas again. Hyenas are among the most intelligent animals on earth (rivaling apes, and even outdoing chimps in some specific studies). Their social intelligence is superb, and as such they form very large and complex clans. A wolf pack is likely to number between 4 and 9 members. A Hyena clan is likely to number far higher, up to 80 members. Hyena clans actively police their own clearly marked territories with assigned boundary patrols and are known to arrive in overwhelming numbers at the whooping call of a Hyena or small group of Hyena scouts in distress. Combat vs other animal groups is coordinated, and factors in the relative number of hostile animals vs clan members (this has been determined by studies) along with other factors such as size and strength of opponent. Hyena clans routinely drive off Lion prides, assuming that no males are present (Males tend to be a problem for Hyenas, though these to have been found killed by Hyena clans when they are successfully isolated), and so they are highly unlikely to struggle with dominating a smaller and FAR weaker pack of wolves. Hyenas are the main rival of lions on the Savannah... wolves by contrast struggle far more with big cats and other large predators, and are far more likely to retreat than to successfully engage such creatures. They lack the individual firepower (by which I mean the Hyena's extreme bite force, which can turn bone to powder), durability, or strength in numbers to contend with the likes of African Lions.
Hyenas take the victory, barring any bizzare circumstances (ie. Highly unfavorable numbers).
