He added: "I think that a fight between those two is massive."

Jones hasn't fought since his victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February.

He's since vacated his UFC light-heavyweight title and announced his move to the heavyweight division.

But White wants to book 'Bones' against 'The Last Stylebender', though he admits it doesn't depend on what he wants.

"It doesn't depend on what I want; it depends on what they want to do," he explained.

"Adesanya is a champ. He's really coming into his own, and you can tell he knows this is his house, and he comes and acts like it.
