Both cleared their divisions but, Silva did most of it while toying with his opposition. GSP had to work his ass off.
Also, I think we can all agree Silva has a better chance at beating Jon Jones than GSP has at beating Silva.
Silva's style lends itself to more highlight-reel knockouts. The fighting style he's had from the start is more flashy - GSP is more of a grinder.
But GSP hasn't really had to "work his ass off" in his fights. I mean, the guy has barely lost a round for half a decade. He could certainly finish more, but it's not like GSP is turning in Benson-Edgar type decision victories. He pitches shutouts.
