UFC commentator Rogan joined Tyson on his podcast and touched on a number of different topics including one of the hottest properties in the MMA promotion.

Chimaev, who had won his four previous UFC fights in extremely dominant fashion, earned a hard-fought win over the Brazilian contender. 

The unbeaten superstar survived a huge scare as he eked out a decision victory, with his performance garnering huge praise from Rogan and Tyson. 

On Chimaev, 'Iron' Mike exclaimed: "No but I know this guy [Chimaev] has some issues that he looks like a nice guy but is kind of psychopathic."

Rogan agreed with Tyson's claim, insisting it was a very close fight. ​

"Full psychopath. He just beat Gilbert Burns...It was a close fight," he said. "It was a very very good fight. Some people even thought Gilbert won.

"I have good friends that texted me afterwards and they thought Gilbert won... It was the first time Khamzat had ever been tested. Gilbert hit him with a big right hand and dropped him."

​Chimaev rocketed up the UFC welterweight rankings following his big win over Burns. 

He's moved above him to No.3 ahead of potentially facing No.1 ranked UFC welterweight Colby Covington
