All things being equal, the guy on top is gonna win 8 out of ten times, because he won't get tired as fast.
This and the guy on top has the control, while the one on the bottom is being kept there against his will. When the GNP is weak and little action occurs through most of the match that sucks, but unless a sub comes from the bottom, top guy is the winner.
