Tito Ortiz says he could've beat Jon Jones in his prime (ESPN)

"[You need] pressure. Don't let him use that reach, try to close down the space with tons of pressure," Ortiz told Fighters Only. "Use my strength, use my wrestling. An injury-free Tito Ortiz is very, very dangerous, and Ryan Bader was the last guy who got a close up of that one. When I'm injury-free, I'm very dangerous. "If I was the same guy, but without the surgeries, then I'd still be the champion. When I look back at my loss to [Randy] Couture, that's when I had my first back problem. I was suffering right through that fight camp, and I suffered for seven years with that back problem."
