Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz caused some stir when he said in a recent interview that he can beat current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones inside the Octagon.

In fact, he went as far as saying that he could perform better than former light heavyweight and current UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier did in his fight against Jones.

I think I would do a lot better against Jon Jones than Daniel Cormier because Cormier is just a shorter guy (with) bigger legs, bigger torso, He’s just a big, big guy. Jon Jones is long and lengthy. I’m going to get in the inside and try to overpower some of the positions. But if it would be Jon Jones, I would think I’d have a great chance against (him).” Tito said on The Domenick Nati Show.

However, he has retracted from his previous claim and took to Instagram and he apologised to both Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.

This message goes out to Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier,” Ortiz said. “I did an interview earlier this week and the reporter asked, ‘How would I do against Jon Jones in my prime?’ And my response was in a negative and disrespectful manner to both fighters.

Jon Jones, you’re one of the greatest light heavyweight champions to ever grace the Octagon. Daniel Cormier, you’re one of the greatest light heavyweights and the greatest heavyweight champion to ever grace the Octagon. I respect both of you guys tremendously and for the first time in my career, I was in the wrong in this interview. So I hope you guys can take my apology because I respect both you guys like no other in and out of the cage.” Ortiz concluded. (H/T – BJPenn.com)

Tito Ortiz is scheduled to fight former WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio on Combat Americas.
