The American only just managed to hold onto his crown in California, two judges scoring the fight 116-112 and 115-113 in his favour, with the other giving it to Ugas 117-111.

Porter, 31, struggled to make weight and he was below his best against challenger Ugas.

"I think we won the majority of the rounds. I would not have given Ugas very many," he said after his win.

Ugas, the 32-year-old Cuban coming off eight straight wins, rattled Porter and only just fell short of an upset win.

[QUOTE=Granath;19574506]It's not that simple. It never is. The punch must CAUSE the knockdown, not just be in close proximity to the knockdown. Porter's right toe clearly makes contact with the mat and clearly slides out from under him after the…

[QUOTE=JWHardin;19574439]I did, and stand by what I said. He was hit at 2:48, was down at 2:49. It was clearly a legal knockdown. Where his feet are at the time he gets hit doesn't matter! If a punch is delivered…

[QUOTE=Granath;19573811]Watch it again at .25 speed. It's most definitely not a knockdown. The toe of Porter's right boot hits the mat and clearly slips off of it. That's why it looks so awkward. That's what caused the fall. Ugas lost…
