Jake Paul hinted at Dana White fighting Conor McGregor in a tweet – the pair currently weigh the same.
Paul began planning to debut at middleweight in MMA as opposed to welterweight, which would mean dropping 20lb.
Paul has a mark of 190lb in five professional boxing bouts, which is 13th at 15lb.
And he made a point that is the current weight of Irishman McGregor, aligning the pair for a potential fight.
Paul tweeted to UFC President White: “When I make my MMA debut, I can cut 20 pounds and do it at welterweight / 170 pounds.
“That’s what all UFC fighters do and many have destroyed their bodies and minds while doing it.
“But I’m going to do it at middleweight (185). Health first. PS Connor running at 190.”
McGregor, 33, has been known to undercut himself when campaigning in the UFC in both featherweight and lightweight.

But in a social media post uploaded in December, he captioned: “190 pounds of granite.”
This means McGregor has gained more than two stone weights since his last fight in the 11th UFC Lightweight Division.
McGregor hasn’t returned since July, when he broke his tibia second before the end of round one in his trilogy match against 33-year-old Dustin Poirier.
This meant he was stopped by the Doctor just six months after he was knocked out by Poirier, the American he had initially defeated in 2014.
McGregor is still recovering from the horror leg break but is eyeing a UFC return this year.
While the 24-year-old Paul recently improved 5-0 as a boxer by defeating former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, in their December rematch.
Woodley, 39, who had lost on points four months earlier, only filled in at short notice after 22-year-old Tommy Fury walked out with a broken rib.
This means that Paul still has to fight an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.
But now he has KO’d all his opponents, as well as online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.
