Rockhold will get the opportunity the reclaim the title he lost to Bisping by shocking first round knockout at UFC 199. "Out of respect to the athletes and the sport, I don't want to hold up the division".
Last week, UFC president Dana White told members of the MMA media that he would be more than a little annoyed if St-Pierre attempted to renege on the agreement he signed.
Helwani reported that it was unclear as to whether Whittaker v Rockhold would be for the interim or official championship.
Since then there was much speculation about whether the two would face each other however due to GSP's battle with colitis the UFC middleweight division will move in a new direction with the Aussie, 26, set to meet former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in Perth's UFC 221 main event.
"We'll talk about it, but I'm not sure if I compete I will go back at 185".
The company also provided The Daily Telegraph with a release which quoted St-Pierre saying: "My fight at UFC 217 was one of the greatest nights of my life". Whittaker has won his past eight fights, including recent victories over top contenders Yoel Romero and Ronaldo Souza. I've always been against performance-enhancing drugs and I did the natural way. "I'm still welterweight size, but I made a decision to take a shot because I put on some muscle mass".
"I think the body has a natural weight it can perform at its best athletic ability and for me, the weight that I am now is my ideal weight".
If St-Pierre decides to vacate his title, that fight could determine who the new champion of the division would be.
