Tito Ortiz threatens to un-retire to keep Jon Jones from breaking his record

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones tied Tito Ortiz for most successful light heavyweight title defenses at five with his first-round shellacking of Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 last weekend in Newark (watch the replay here). "Bones" could break the record his next time out -- unless Ortiz makes good on his threat to come out of retirement and do some winning of his own. Unfortunately, the former "Bad Boy" from Huntington Beach has just one victory in nearly seven years, going 1-7-1 over his final eight fights. Then again, I hear Chael Sonnen could be looking for another 30-something veteran in the second half of 2013. Tickling anyone's fancy?
