Both have proven to be very strong mentally, but I think Silva is the one that looks more invincible. It's not that he hasn't lost yet in the UFC, it's that his opponents never even hurt him. He, on the other hand, destroyed his opponents.
GSP, while dominating his opponents, he never destroyed them, and he also shown he can get hurt.
I agree. There are too many 'myths' floating around GSP. He battled back hard in the GSP-Penn 1 match, after the eye poke as well... but he got beaten by Matt Hughes the first time they fought too, because he was a little weak minded at the time.

He admitted to being nervous to fight his idol.....

Anderson has shown he can take a beating and come back for the win.
