Given a neutral environment for the two to fight in, who would win? Some quick observations:
Hippos are EXTREMELY lethal and are said to kill more people in Africa where they are found than any other animal. It should be considered that they generally do so because people bathe in waters and don't realize the hippos are there. They have enormous mouths and can chomp a crocodile in half with their massive powerful jaws. They're significantly heavier and decently larger than polar bears as well.
Polar bears are much, much more deadly than they're characterized as. They are on top of the food chain in the arctic and man and a disappearing environment are their only real threats. A polar bear can easily take down a 2 ton bull walrus and rarely has a chance to display its true ferocious capability because it has no comparable prey. Polar bears are excellent swimmers with extremely powerful jaws, sharp teeth and 3"+ claws. They're quicker and more agile than hippos, although smaller.
I'll refrain from offering my opinion here and see what the public has to say on this matter.
