MMA analyst Joe Rogan has praised Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk for putting on 'one of the greatest fights' he has ever seen at UFC 248.

The pair battered one another over five rounds in what was a brutal, savage 25 minutes of non-stop action.

Weili claimed a close split decision victory to retain her title and Rogan took to social media to display his appreciation for both fighters.

He said: “There were so many great fights last night, but the women’s straw weight title between Weili Zhang and Joanna Jedrzejczyk was one of the greatest fights I’ve ever seen in my life and I can’t stop thinking about it.

"I feel honoured to be so fortunate to see that fight live and to be able to call it. Both women embody all that is best about being a champion. #RESPECT!"

UFC star Conor McGregor also hailed the performance of both fighters, but admitted he felt the wrong person got their hand raised.

On his Twitter, he said: "Amazing contest! Wrong decision."
