Michelin Mud 2 or Hutchinson Bulldog for a tubeless mud tire?

I'm in the process of switching over to tubeless for this season and am considering the mud or bulldog for my mud tire.

I race throughout PA and OH and we often have thick nasty mud. Which tire would serve as the best mud tubeless tire?

Michelin. Most people I know who have tried to real Hutchison tubeless tires say they suck.. I had read somewhere the sidewall is stiffer on the tubeless tires--which probably is what makes them suck.
I used HUtchinson tubeless mounted on Fulcrum 2 way fit rims and did over 20 races including NAts and had absolutely no problems. Running the same this year along with Mud 2.
Michelin: not only does it mount up easier, it has a better ride and tread. I have to try the Captian tubeless...
I ended up going with the Michelin. I tried to get the tire to inflate last night with co2 and an air compressor. Neither worked. This was on a Ksryium SL rim.
After my failed attempt to set up the michelin as tubeless, I tired the piranhas that came with my bike. I was able to get them on with no problem on a pair of Ksryium ES rims. However, it took forever to seal all the leaks.
