Tito Ortiz wants to unretire to stop Jon Jones from breaking his record

This past Saturday night at UFC 159, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones (18-1 MMA, 12-1 UFC) tied the record of five consecutive successful light heavyweight title defenses set by Tito Ortiz back in 2002, by defeating challenger Chael Sonnen via TKO in the very first round.

Since then, the now retired former champ, Tito Ortiz, has tweeted that he would like to keep his record from being broken:

@TitoOrtiz: Well I may have to come out of retirement to beat @JonnyBones I can’t let I’m beat my record. @Punishment99 #ufc159 #UFConXboxLIVE

Tito Ortiz (16-11-1 MMA, 15-11-1 UFC) went just 1-7-1 in his final 9 octagon appearances, so the chances of unretiring into a title shot seem pretty remote.

Who would you like to see Jones face next? And if Tito were to return, who would you like to see him square off with?

Let’s hear it Penn Nation!

      Tito’s only chance of Jones not breaking his record is for him to talk the UFC into giving Daniel Cormier next shot at Jones. I would bet big on Cormier over Jones. However we all know Greg Jackson will never let that fight happen PERIOD. Just like Greg Jackson will NEVER let GSP/Silva happen PERIOD

    Ummm, yeah right! Tito must be playing a UFC video game where he is a special unlockable character. That’s probably the ONLY world he’d beat Jon Jones in!

  3. doc says:

    I think he is jesting. He knows he cannot beat enough guys to earn a title shot. And he knows he cannot beat Jon Jones for the title. Those are the two things he has to do BEFORE even being able to keep his record of defenses. Then he will have to defend it AGAIN for said amount of fights.

    He cannot do it. Even if he was in his prime. No chance.

    Shit Tito,
    You should try to beat your wife’s ex husbands record.

  5. Donovan says:

  8. Ben says:

    I should open up a news site of my own. All I need to do is listen to the MMA Hour and not understand when people are joking.

  9. Jeremy says:

    Idk what’s funnier. Ortiz coming out of retirement or the fact that he thinks he could bear jones if he did. Ortiz is done and he needs to finally accept that

  10. jsmith says:

    Sure he wants to and maybe 10 years ago he’d have a remote chance. Oh well, enjoy retirement

  11. Nick says:

    He clearly added #UFConXboxLive

  12. confucius says:

    im convinced just writes about the dumbest shit possible to start up drama.

  13. 757 says:

    Dumb fight….dumb article

  14. Eric says:

    Only thing Tito will stop from being broken is maybe his arms… I like Tito, ALOT, but he really has 0 chance of stopping Jones from doing anything.

  15. John Keenan III says:

    I’d like to see Tito Fight all of these internet keyboard warriors putting him down one right after the other. Easy to type words, not as easy to step into the cage.
