Joe Rogan podcast: Mike Tyson claims human beings are 'descendants of aliens'


Mike Tyson has made an extraordinary claim that humans are the ‘descendants of aliens’ when discussing the topic of extra-terrestrial life on The Joe Rogan Experience.

Ahead of the 54-year-old’s much anticipated return to the ring in November, Tyson’s promotion interview took a weird turn when alien life was brought up.

“Listen, there’s more stars in space than there are grains of sand in the desert. Can you imagine that?” claimed the former undisputed heavyweight champ ahead of the bout with Roy Jones Jr.

When Rogan asked the Brooklyn-born fighter whether we are alone in the universe, Tyson was quick to offer his views.

I think we’re aliens. I think we’re descendants of aliens.

“If you can’t explain – If you can only tell me about Adam and Eve, I’mma go with the aliens. If that’s what you’re hitting me with, Adam and Eve? I’mma go with these alien guys.”

Rogan responded by saying that Tyson’s views may not be as controversial as you’d expect, adding: “There’s a lot of people that believe we’re the product of aliens.”

Tyson then went one further and tried to offer a deeper insight into his views.


“Well listen, when certain tribes of people, I’m not saying Caucasians when they came to Africa, even before that. When people came to other people, the first time they seen them, they were ‘aliens’.

“The first time an Asian man saw a Caucasian man, that was an ‘alien’. A black man saw an Asian man or a white man, that was an ‘alien’. Maybe they weren’t aliens, but that’s what they thought they were.

“They were just a tribe of people that encountered them. Perhaps they [aliens] were getting extinct, they were dying and they had to breed the lower – whatever you were saying – lower hominids, and this is us.”

We wonder how The Baddest Man on [This] Planet would fancy his chances sparring his alien ancestors.
