UFC Legend Tito Ortiz has sensationally claimed that not only would he like the opportunity to fight Jon Jones, but also that he has what it takes to beat him.

Ortiz is currently in training camp as he prepares to fight former WWE star Alberto El Patron in Combate Americas. However, he has now revealed that he has ambitions of a far more challenging fight in the near future.

"I think I could beat Jon Jones. I think I got a good chance. I really do think I got a good chance...I'm doing amazing, my mind's in the right place." (TMZ Sports)

Ortiz will always be looked upon as one of the true game-changers in the sport of MMA, but it cannot be forgotten that he did go 1-8 in his last 9 UFC outings. Regardless, Ortiz shows no signs of calling time on his career any time soon.

Meanwhile, at just 32 years of age, Jon Jones has already cemented himself as one of the greatest fighters of all time, so it seems nearly impossible that Dana White would ever be willing to book a fight between the pair - regardless of how much Ortiz may want it.
