Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre will battle at UFC 217, with the bout to be signed and confirmed in the coming days.
St-Pierre is a two-time welterweight champion and considered the greatest of all time in the weight class.
Bisping has a huge following throughout his homeland of the UK, rising the ladder in UFC after a colourful career.
Per Adam Guillen Jr. of MMA Mania, White said he prefers to give Bisping the stage at UFC 217 after Tyron Woodley's lack of performance against Demian Maia at UFC 214.
“Yup! There you go," White said. "Because I know Michael Bisping will fight. Michael Bisping will show up and actually fight.”
If Bisping signs to fight GSP at the historic venue, it could turn into one of the most memorable nights in recent MMA history.
