Chonan's was more epic, and he was winning that fight.

At one point in the fight there's a scramble from the ground. Chonan gets up first, and Silva throws a high kick, which Chonan blocks easily. No big deal except Silva was STANDING BEHIND HIM. Chonan blocks the kick without looking. The whole fight went like that except for Silva's body triangle of unending delay.

Chonan, like Weidman, had Silva scouted perfectly.

It's just something about Knocking your opponent out makes it special, Anderson could have physically still fought even getting heel hooked. It was the pain that made him tap out, not due to him being physically unable to continue. Getting knocked out physically does not let you to continue you have no choice, you simply can't fight once your out unconscious. We have never actually ever seen Anderson to truly physically be unable to continue in a fight, and that is what made it more special in my opinion (No disrespect to the Anderson of course.)
