Georges St-Pierre has been mostly quiet in the media since a press conference to announce his hiatus from the UFC, but today made a public appearance and commented on his status:

"I'm taking a break now," he began.
"Because I'm an obsessive guy, I give myself a challenge which automatically will mean me working on it to obtain it. So right now I take a break. I don't give myself any preference, you know. There is a chance I will come back."
