This poll is not based on what your line of expertise, this is a wildlife/sports competition.
Pretend you aone going on a wildlife expedition, or to a sports game. You are going to use this lens handheld, with a monopod, a tripod, extenders, etc.
Which would you choose.

Canon, for the faster AF.

But for wildlife, I'd take a 500/4 II or 600/4 II.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I would choose a 300mm or 400mm for sports, and a 500mm or 600mm for wildlife.

You didn't mention what type of body you were using, but if you would like to compromise, then you could add an extender and crop body to the shorter lenses, for wildlife.
