Bellator Star 'Willing To Bet Dana White '$1 Million' He Would Beat UFC Champions
The Brazilian, nicknamed 'The Pitbull', currently holds both the featherweight and lightweight titles in Bellator and is on a five-fight win streak.
Clearly not lacking in confidence, Freire believes he is better than the UFC's best and would have no problem against dominant lightweight champion Khabib and featherweight champion Volkanovski in a cross-promotion bout.
His comments and subsequent wager offer on Twitter came after White said he didn't know much about him when asked about Freire following the latest UFC Fight Night event in Las Vegas.
The 33-year old would then introduce himself to the UFC president in emphatic fashion by making him aware of his win against former UFC fighter Mike Chandler, who be beat in just over a minute.

His brother, Patricky, also weighed in by stating his impressive record against former UFC fighters.
For what it's worth, Volkanovski, who successfully defended his title against Max Holloway at UFC 251, is well up for it.
Dual champ Freire is enjoying having two belts in his possession and says he would only be willing to relinquish the lightweight strap if it means his brother gets a title shot.
"Only if he's involved," Freire said, as per MMA Fighting.
"There's no other possibility of me vacating the belt. If there's any other challenger, I'd fight.
"Winning that belt was really hard so I wouldn't accept it (vacating it). If they put my brother in a title fight, then I'd do it. I've already told them I would vacate the title so the division can move."
