The UFC president has been vocal about his disdain for the YouTuber-turned-boxer, slamming his foray into the sport.
Paul, 5-0 in professional boxing, has returned fire - proposing a challenge to White if he agreed to a set of conditions.
“Best year we ever had,” White. “Sponsorship is through the roof. Social media, our numbers on PPV, our numbers on television, arena records. This business is on fire.”— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) January 7, 2022

The UFC boss did NOT respond to his latest offer, with one of his former fighters making a big claim.
Schaub, who fought in the UFC from 2009 to 2014, reckons White is 'threatened' by the 24-year-old, who has been called a 'cheat code' in the fight game.
The former UFC heavyweight said on his podcast: "Say what you want about Jake Paul.
"But he has taken the fight game [and] flipped it on his head.
"Dana is coming after him - listen, Dana only goes after people that he's threatened by," he added.
"He has all the money in the world, so when you threaten his business model, which Jake Paul is doing - he's completely flipped the game.
"He's the chink in their armour. He's a cheat code in this fight game."
'The Problem Child' made a new offer to White, but still got no response - with the budding boxer eyeing fights against the likes of Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.
He's also called out Conor McGregor and Kamaru Usman.
Paul, meanwhile, rounded off 2021 with a huge knockout victory over Tyron Woodley and appears to be lining up a fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
The former world champion could be next for Paul, who seems to have ruled out Tommy Fury following their cancelled bout last year.
