Andreas Spang b Brian Rogers in the middleweight tournament semifinal on a second round knockout
Maiquel Falcao b Vyacheslav Vaslievsky in the other middleweight semifinal via decision

Spang and Falcao nearly got into a brawl in a face-off to promote the final.  Spang may be in trouble because he shoved Rogers at the weigh-ins and you can do that once, but not twice, on the same weekend.
