White appeared on Logan Paul's podcast and, naturally, was asked about the budding boxer's UFC proposal that includes a fight against McGregor.
The 25-year-old made an offer to the UFC boss and it included a couple of interesting stipulations.
But the MMA promoter poured cold water on Jake's challenge - saying he's too big for the ex-UFC lightweight champion.
"Well, he shouldn’t even be fighting Conor McGregor," he said on Impaulsive.
"These guys (the Pauls) are f**king huge. He’s (Logan) huge, his brother (Jake) is huge. What’s your brother, 6’1”, 210? Conor McGregor is 145, 155 pounds... there’s weight classes for a reason."
McGregor fought as high as welterweight when he faced Nate Diaz (x2) and Donald Cerrone.
Though White reckons it's a 'stretch' for the Irishman to be competing at 170lbs.
"It’s a stretch for Conor to fight at 170," he added. He fought Nate (Diaz) at 170. That isn’t his f**king weight class, not even close."
White's comments DIDN'T go down well with 'The Problem Child' who hit back on social media.
He's offered to meet McGregor at 175lbs as he called out White.
Jake tweeted: "Dana White is begging for Diaz and Conor to fight for a third time…they have fought at 170 pounds in both their fights I will fight Conor at 175 pounds, no problem.
"Stop making excuses p**sies."

Jake's been relentless in calling out McGregor, who isn't the only big name in the UFC subjected to a barrage of abuse.
UFC's 'BMF' champion Jorge Masvidal has also been called out and taunted online.
