This week the UFC president went on Logan Paul’s podcast, and of course, the topic of the younger Paul brother was brought up.
There’s weight classes for a reason
When asked if White would consider Jake vs. Conor McGregor, he wasn’t too thrilled with the idea because of the size difference.
“Well, he shouldn’t even be fighting Conor McGregor,” White said. “These guys are f*cking huge. He’s [Logan] huge, his brother [Jake] is huge. What’s your brother, 6’1”, 210? Conor McGregor is 145, 155 pounds… there are weight classes for a reason,” White said. “It’s a stretch for Conor to fight at 170. He fought Nate [Diaz] at 170. That isn’t his f*cking weight class, not even close.”
It did not take long for Jake to respond on Twitter.
“Dana White is begging for Diaz and Conor to fight for a third time,” Paul replied. “They have fought at 170 pounds in both their fights.
“I will fight Conor at 175 pounds, no problem. Stop making excuses pu*sies.”

A couple of weeks ago, McGregor said never say never when it came to potentially fighting the YouTuber turned boxer.
McGregor is still recovering from the injury he sustained at UFC 264 last year against Dustin Poirier. There are rumors he may return in the summer.
Jake is taking some time away from the boxing ring in order to help promote his boxer Amanda Serrano, who is scheduled to fight Katie Taylor next month at Madison Square Garden.
