Tito Ortiz believes that, should the opportunity come up, he could beat UFC star Jon Jones. Ortiz, who is set to face Alberto El Patron at Combate America’s first PPV next weekend, spoke with TMZ Sports and said that he would like the chance to square off with the UFC light heavyweight champion.

“If Jonny ‘Bones’ Jones could get his stuff together, he could be the best ever, but I mean, could have; not anymore,” Ortiz noted. “He tarnished his career so many times, so much stuff that he did in and out of the cage. God, it bums me out because I love the guy. He was one of the best light heavyweights to ever grace the Octagon.”

When asked if he could beat Jones, he said, “Come on, why wouldn’t I? The way I feel right now? The strategy is pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure … I think I can beat Jon Jones. I really do think I’ve got a good chance. If people say, ‘Oh, Tito, bulls**t, you’re over the hill,’ whatever. Come to my camp. Come train with me. Come wrestle with me. Come do jiu-jitsu with me. Watch my weight training. Watch my biking and my stairs that I do. I push myself harder than I pushed myself through my whole career, man. I’m doing amazing. My mind is in the right place, my body is in the right place.”
