Porter and Ugas went all 12 rounds inside the squared circle. Ugas gave Porter all he could handle, with many believing that he even did enough to take home the victory. However, when the scorecards were read, it was Porter who was given the nod via split decision. Not everyone was in agreement with the decision, but despite that, Porter leaves California still WBC welterweight champion of the world.
