Tito Ortiz Hopes To See Vitor Belfort Shock The World Saturday Night

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has backed Jon Jones in the past.

However, that appears done and over with now.

Ortiz recently offered up his take on Saturday night’s UFC 152 main event between Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, and Vitor Belfort.

This is everything for (Belfort) as far as his legacy – this is the biggest opportunity anyone from our generation in the UFC ever had. If he wins this fight, and beats the best young champion to come along in years, then Vitor is an all-time legend and this goes down as one of the most significant wins of all time. It’s that big.

Jones will be seeking earn his fourth successful title defense. He would move closer to tying the record for the 205-pound belt set by Ortiz.

The recent-inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame believes Belfort needs to put “Bones” away early.

Vitor has to get this done in the first two rounds. He can’t give Jones time to settle. Vitor has to land before Jones has his timing down.
