HENRY CEJUDO has offered to fight Jake Paul for FREE on behalf of Dana White… as long as he gets a UFC title shot in return.
YouTube star-turned prizefighter Paul has built a bitter rivalry with UFC president White and his MMA stable.
He has called out the promoter regarding fighter pay and challenged several current and former UFC stars.
Now, former flyweight and bantamweight champion Cejudo – who retired from MMA in 2020 – is ready to represent his old boss White.
And he will even do it for nothing – baring a guaranteed title shot against UFC featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski.
Cejudo, 34, tweeted: "Hey @danawhite Pay me to fight Alex and I’ll beat up Jake Paul for free."
The 2008 Olympic gold medalist announced his shock retirement after beating Dominick Cruz, 36, at UFC 249.
But he has since hinted at a return to try and become the first ever to win belts in three UFC divisions.

And after Max Holloway, 30, pulled out of his trilogy with Volkanovski, 33, Cejudo offered to step in.
But the chances of him facing Paul – who fights almost FOUR STONE heavier – is slim.
The social media sensation has previously knocked out former UFC pair Ben Askren, 37, and most recently Tyron Woodley, 39.
It added to prior KOs over YouTuber 'AnEsonGib' and ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37.
He first beat Woodley on points in August but won the rematch with a brutal right hand four months later.
Afterwards, he called out Nate Diaz, 36, and Jorge Masvidal, 37, but White admitted he would NEVER let the two out of their UFC contract for the bout.
He told boxing trainer Teddy Atlas: “You notice how he wants to fight f***ing everybody that’s not in his weight class, guys that are older and all this bulls***.
"Go fight a boxer. Go hump somebody else’s leg, you goofball.”
