Brad Josephs, an expedition leader and a guide with a keen interest in nature, recorded an almost nine-minute-long heart-pounding battle between two colossal grizzly bears, each trying to establish their dominance.

The epic encounter between these two huge males fighting fiercely for supremacy took place on the border of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve in Alaska on May 8. The video shows an intense scene where a bigger, older bear aggressively challenges a smaller, younger bear in a sedge meadow during the breeding season, just when Josephs came across them.
