Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz responded to current champ Jon Jones tying his UFC record 5 consecutive LHW title defenses by taking to twitter and speculating about coming out of retirement:
Ortiz had lost his first title shot against Frank Shamrock in a classic at UFC 22. After Shamrock retired, Ortiz won the then-vacant title in a UFC 25 decision win over Wanderlei Silva in April, 2000. He then reeled off a string of wins over Yuki Kondo, Evan Tanner, Elvis Sinosic, Vladimir Matushenko and Ken Shamrock before losing the title to Randy Couture at UFC 44 in September, 2003.
Jones took the title from Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 in March, 2011. Since then he has beaten Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen in consecutive title bouts. He has stated he wants to break Ortiz' record and then challenge Middleweight champ Anderson Silva in a "super fight" before moving up to seek the UFC Heavyweight title.
First Jones will have to recover from a horribly dislocated big toe suffered during the Sonnen match. He is medically suspended for an indefinite length of time.
