Two men, identically matched in strength, are fighting to the death. The aggressor fights out of anger, the other fights out of fear.  Which guy will win?

Which is the stronger emotion?

Does survival instinct trump raw rage?

Curious minds want to know.

This, dear Ad, is a no-brainer.
It comes down to choices.
You can choose to be angry . . . or not. Somewhere along the line, when you tire, you can make the decision not to be quite that angry anymore. You have vented your anger and it begins to dissipate immediately.
Survival, on the other hand, leaves one with no choice whatsoever . . . but to fight until there is absolutedly nothing else to give. 'To the death' means just that . . . when you are fighting for your survival. It trumps anger every time.
