Sirfech'd is faster, have greater Attack and more types of physical moves to choose, Grapploct have more HP, but can't learn Swords Dance... Sirfech'd is better.
Interesting bisharp but I advise to change foul play to night slash or a coverage move. Toxic and yawn can't go together on hippowdon, Max one status (exception of confusion). Moving on to answering ur question, I would say sir fetchd.i like Octolock protect but leek with sirfetched will allow massive damage boost, 50 %crit chance with just leek, confirm crit if u use moves like night slash and leaf blade. One sword dance and then kill. Focus energy for confirm crit us possible or just spam attack with it's high attack without set up.it also gets first impression for psychic coverage or night slash to hit ghost and psychic
I would put Hippowdon's defense EV's into SpD instead because most grass, water and ice moves are special.  Excluding Leaf Blade and Liquidation of course.
thx for the suggestion
