White believes Jones vs. Adesanya is "massive" and is "100 percent" the fight to make.
When asked about their social media beef and them potentially clashing inside the Octagon, he replied: "That's the fight to make, 100 percent."
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.
"I think he wants the winner of Whittaker and Cannonier, and then we'll see what happens after that."
He's eyeing a fight against No.3 ranked UFC middleweight Jared Cannonier who faces Robert Whittaker at UFC 254.
Speaking about 'The Killa Gorilla', the UFC middleweight king said: "Jared Cannonier, I love his energy, he's a beautiful man.
"I said, 'You destroy Robert Whittaker, you're next.'"
