Andy Souwer wins by decision in an extra round. Grigorian came out guns blazing, surprising everyone and putting it on Souwer. Souwer rallied back in Rounds 2 and 3, getting an extension round where he took over the fight. This was a great back and forth fight.

70kg Quarter Final: Chris Ngimbi vs. Murat Direkci

70kg Quarter Final: Robin van Roosmalen vs. Chahid Oulad el Hadj

Robin van Roosmalen wins by TKO (Corner Stoppage) in Round 2. The first round was really close, back and forth non stop action. van Roosmalen took over in the second and gave a standing count to Chahid where Chahid's corner threw in the towel. Looked like Chahid might have a broken jaw.

73kg Super Fight: Yassin Baitar vs. Marat Grigorian
