Had to ask Tito Ortiz as he signed autographs for fans for Bellator MMA at Charlotte Motor Speedway if he would want to fight Floyd Mayweather. Ortiz: "It's strictly a money fight. (Conor) McGregor is smart and Mayweather is smart. It's not going to last four rounds. It's like comparing checkers to chess. Can't do it. Mayweather wins. It's a boxing match. Switch it around, Mayweather wouldn't last." Dan Henderson, also at the track where Bellator and Monster Energy will promote fights Saturday prior to the NASCAR all-star race, agreed: "If you had one aspect of MMA with the rules, Mayweather would get beat up."

Former UFC champion Tito Ortiz has no intentions of making a comeback as he said Friday he was "1,000 percent" retired. Ortiz: "I'm free to fish. It's nice to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, not sacrifice Thanksgiving dinner, not sacrifice Christmas dinner, not sacrifice New Year's, not sacrifice on my birthday, not sacrifice Fourth of July." Ortiz was at Charlotte Motor Speedway doing an appearance for Bellator MMA, along with Dan Henderson. Henderson is enjoying his retirement as well: "I don't really miss it at all. I'm sure I'll miss a little bit of the competition but not too much. Watching fights, I don't have the desire to be in there. I feel great about what I've done in the sport. I'm completely satisfied with my career."

No firm time frame on when Floyd Mayweather might sign his side for a boxing match against Conor McGregor, but there's been optimism on McGregor's side throughout this entire process he will do so. It's a lucrative fight Mayweather has made no secret he wants. As far as a date, nothing confirmed at this time, as Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin has been booked to the first choice of Sept. 16. But a date within a month's timeframe of that initial target is most likely as of now, August-October.
