I thought the same thing, Ben. And even though Urijah got right back up, Cruz still got all those TDs. What frustrated me was the few times Urijah did knock him on his backside he didn't take advantage and follow forward, try to get a few more punches in while he was down, and maybe score some more points. I think the judges made the right decision. I think when Urijah goes back and watches the fight, he'll see all that.
Thanks for the great coverage, Ben!
