i think Thomson has improved his overall game since that loss to guida he outwrestled melendez in the same fashion ishida did so id say thier wrestling is comparable. i wouldnt say ishida has one of the best top games though his top control is some of the best but he rarely does anything with it thats why a large majority of his fights go to a decison almost like a sean sherk except i think sherks passing is better
