He isn't actually dominating the tiger, the tiger simply wants to avoid a possible chance of physical confrontation, which is different from "dominance".

I'm having a hard time seeing the "domination"

Well it's being chased off by the jaguar.. Jaguar seems to be the dominant cat in the cage. There are many types of domination, both cats wanted food and just like a male lion with lionesses the jaguar kept the tiger at bay and chased it away. That's dominant in my book!

Well, whatever. It's your word.

But "domination", in my sense, usually involves a prolonged physical/hierarchal exchange or intimidation (speaking wild animals here, of course) in which one of the participants has a clear advantage over the other. In this case, the tiger was larger and wasn't willing to participate in the jaguar's games, thus no definition of who is dominant can be applied. Hierarchy doesn't apply since they are also two different species.

Dominating!! Where and When

See the real 'dominance', 500 kg bull run away after savage fight with 10kg Goat.May be this is the way Jaguar dominates Tiger.

The tiger was intimidated by the jaguar no doubt, tiger would of course win if a physical had broken out, but dominance in the wild is also between different spicies like lions are dominant over hyenas, but hyenas can be dominating lions too. I have seen a single hyena stealing a carcass from a lioness, in that case the hyena where the dominant spicies. 

I say it like this the tiger would have been waiting by the bars pick up the first slice of meat if it was alone, but since there was a tougher cat in the cage that wouldn't let it do that, the tiger waited on it's turn. and that is Dominance

To begin with, putting the two big cats in the same cage was an act of stupidity. The jaguar was the first to grab the meat and run to the other side of the cage with it. Both animals ate. I noticed too that the jaguar was very anxious to get out of that cage. The tiger seemed nervous; probably because he was in a cage with a strange animal. We must remember that these are big cats who have lived their entire lives in captivity. 
In the wild, if jaguars roamed the same jungle as the Bengal tiger, I can make a pretty good guess at which cat would dominate the other.

@brotherbear:

About #10: One couldn't say it better...

Similarly, some videos on youtube are so stupidly entitled...

-0:00 - 0:05, shout out to the lioness enjoying her meal. 
-0:08 - a very nervous jaguar mock charges the tiger, as expected. tiger effortlessly throws the much smaller jaguar off and the jaguar goes running to his corner. 0:12 jaguar can be seen running away while the tiger just walks like nothing happened.
-0:18 - jaguar mock charges again.
-0:31 - tiger in the background seems to be taunting the jaguar from his "tiger pool". 
-0:44 - Jaguar mock charges.
-0:46 - Jaguar runs to his corner after a failed attempt.
-0:48 - tiger casually walks out of the pool like a boss.
-0:51-0:56 - a very calm tiger is seen provoking the smaller cat, its like he's waiting for the Jaguar to take the bait. 
-1:05 - jaguar mock charges, tiger is just chilling. no fear, no reaction. 
-1:06 - jaguar runs to his corner.
-1:23 - jaguar attacks, tiger throws him off with a right jab. 1:24 jaguar submits and runs. 
-1:25 - jaguar attacks again, tiger just toys with him. 
-1:29 - jaguar runs to his corner after having 0 effect in that little show down. 
-1:31 - tiger just doing his routinely walk.
-1:35, 2:39 - several failed mock charges by the jaguar, tiger puts him to his place everytime. 
-the entire video from 0:00 until 2:40, i saw no "fight" for food.
-3:05, 3:24 - a heavily stressed jaguar is on his guard while the tiger pays absolutely no attention to him, Its like the Jaguar doesnt exist to him. 
- 3:28, 4:15 - super calm tiger enjoying his meal, 0 stamina burn out. jaguar with all of his mock charges burnt himself out and is gasping for air. 
- In social occasions, the tiger is an excellent host and there is no such thing as a casual party in its home, Guests can always expect a memorable occasion with an extravagance of food and drink. to me it seems like the jaguar got spooked the entire video by the bigger and stronger cat. Tigre de Bengala is a Trollololololol.
- I could be wrong.

Just watched it again, they're obviously cage mates, when they do actually go at it you can tell the tiger isn't trying to hurt the jag but of course the jag is being more food aggressive for sure. At black jaguar  white tiger he always talks about jags food aggression and fighting prowess. He just had to remove dharma the male leopard from the big pride because Michael the jag become too aggressive for him. Those are probably my two favorite big cats so it's cool to see regardless.

My take on it.

If you consider this as "domination", then you're looking at it from a lion's point of view, not from a solitary cat's one.

The only domination, if you can call it that, that I see is the one you expect from an adult male towards a youngster, and to me that's what is happening here. The Jaguar is adult, while the tiger is a subadult that is more trying to play and see what he can get away with, that anything else.

And one more thing. What the video shows is not how solitary cats solve their domination problems. They don't mock charge 100 times just for the sake of it. Either they solve it once and for all, or they simply refrain from doing it.
