Dana White has named the fight he would like to see most in 2021, but he fears that it won't be able to go ahead because of the weight discrepancy between the fighters.

The UFC chief told TSN that he would like to see New Zealander Israel Adesanya face American Jon Jones after their online feud.

However, the fact that Jones fights at heavyweight and Adesanya at light heavyweight means that there are doubts over whether the match up will be possible.

"As a fan, it's impossible for me not to love Jon Jones versus Israel Adesanya," White said.

"I don't know if that's going to happen. I know Jon's moving to heavyweight and Adesanya's at light-heavyweight.

"But we'll see what happens."

White isn't the only one who would love to see the pair face off, with many fans keen for Jones and Adesanya to face each other in the octagon.

"The light-heavyweight division was fun, but I just wasn't scared of those guys anymore. "Like, none of them. And I think it showed in some of my performances," he told ESPN.

Jones has said that he isn't interested in fighting at light heavyweight any more, and so it is likely tht any fight would need Adesanya to agree to moving up a class.

Whether he would want to do this for such a high profile event is unknown.It is possible he would want to fight at the weight a few times before facing Jones.

What's the fight you want to see in 2021?
