I'm more well rounded than Georges St-Pierre, I punch harder, and he was the GOAT, he was the greatest of all time.
Earlier this week news broke that St-Pierre and the UFC had agreed to terms on a multi-fight deal that would bring the Canadian phenom back home inside the Octagon.
So far there have been no opponents or return dates announced, but White mentioned that the victor of the rematch between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson in UFC 209 for the welterweight title could be a possible opponent for St. -Pierre.
"It could be the victor [of the March 4 welterweight title fight] between Tyron Woodley and Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson, or it could be [middleweight champion] Michael Bisping", White told the LA Times. "We'll get there", Punk said.
St-Pierre stepped away from the sport in November of 2013 after making the ninth consecutive defense of his UFC welterweight championship.
The 35-year-old Montreal native cited a need for time off following the bout, but also questioned the UFC's drug-testing policies. He answered that setback by defeating Serra in April 2008.
He said: "It could be the victor (of the March 4 welterweight title fight) between Tyron Woodley and Stephen 'Wonderboy" Thompson, or it could be (middleweight champion) Michael Bisping. His lawyer, James (Jim) Quinn, said one other sticking point during negotiations was UFC's exclusive apparel deal with Reebok.

The UFC and St-Pierre came close to a new deal a year ago when the Canadian was negotiating for a fight with middleweight champion Michael Bisping, but the two sides couldn't come to terms.
However, those issues have now been worked out and St-Pierre will immediately be thrust into the title pictures at three different weights, according to White.
'But I have no idea when he's going to fight right now. "We don't have anything booked and literally haven't talked to anybody about it", he wrote.
The former champ would later make headlines after revealing his involvement in the Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA).
Up at middleweight, champion Michael Bisping has expressed his desire to secure a lucrative bout against GSP, who should return to the Octogon later this year.
