Cholish looks to have the better resume, from looking at their sherdog pages.

Cholish trains with Renzo Gracie JJ, 7-1, lost his first fight and has won 7 straight. Last two wins over notable names in Marc Stevens and Jameel Massouh.

Both seem to have a good ground game with most of their wins via sub.

Then Mitch 9-0, trains at a BJJ place, hasn't faced the stiffest competition, but some experienced guys he has faced.

I'm glad you said something. I accidently mixed up the fighters. I meant to choose Cholish for his experience.

Anyways, I mean experience as in fighting in a major organization, such as Strikeforce. Most of Clarke's fights have been in local areas.
