Tito Ortiz claims he “may have to come out of retirement” to protect his record

If you’ve read that headline then you’ve more than likely either rolled your eyes or chuckled by now. Or you’re a huge Ortiz fan and you love the idea so you may just be jumping around the room fist pumping and doing yes cartwheels.

In a tweet posted the morning after Jon Jones successfully defended his title, tying Ortiz’ record of title defenses in the process, Ortiz had the following to say:

Interesting to say the least. It’s highly doubtful that Ortiz would come out of retirement let alone get a shot at the current champion or anyone in the top 10 for that matter. But given his record of 7 lossess in his last 9 fights, I give this pretty brash statement no chance at coming to fruition.

We all know Dana is a business man who likes to make fights that the people want to see. But I doubt that any MMA fan with half a brain would be interested in seeing Tito Ortiz get mangled and obliterated by Jones.

What do you think Lowkickers? Am I wrong? Would ANY of you be interested in a comeback match for the title defense record and light heavyweight championship between Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz?

    *** is very observant. He would have immediately noticed Bonez big toe snap, snagged a toe hold, got the sub, and post fight interview claim the damage was his, and he is back, gave his all, and worked 8 weeks in a training camp specifically for that move. Nah, he is just having delusions of grandeur.

    it'd be an easy sell. former champion returning to protect his record while the younger champ aiming to not only beat the record but go through the person currently holding it

    Pigs will fly, Fox news will call Obama the greatest president ever and Lindsay Lohan will win an Oscar before Ortiz gets a shot at the title.

    Give Tito to Jones on Jones birthday, as a pinata!! It would be the same as Tito stepping in the cage with him.

    I'm not sure I like Tito anymore. His fights are lackluster. His **** talk is sub par to his losing record. Its not like he is fighting anyone in the top 5. Sometimes you have to just walk away. Time gets us all.
