King Mo Lawal beat Teodoras Aukstuolis in the heavyweight tournament semifinal, dominating him everywhere and winning via decision
Jiri Prochazka beat Vadim Nemkov in the other heavyweight semifinal. Very good fight going back-and-forth. Nemkov had the advantage on the ground.

Brennan Ward of Bellator beat Ken Hasegawa with a belly-to-belly suplex and choke.
Soo Chul Kim beat Maike Linhares in a boring fight via unanimous decision.
Takeru beat Yang Ming under K-1 rules. The ref stopped it after a barrage of punches in the second round.
Gabi Garcia beat Lei'd Tapa via knockout with a backfist that looked most like a reflex action than a planned punch. Garcia looked tons bigger than Tapa, stunningly so. Tapa was a lot lighter than her wrestling size and Garcia had the most ridiculous shoulders on a fighter, man or woman, that you'll see. Tapa knocked her down first and then both swung wildly with no technique. The crowd was very into this as a freak show fight.
Bob Sapp beat Akebono. This fight was so bad Spike couldn't air it.
Baruto beat Peter Aerts via decision. The 403-pound Baruto threw Aerts around pretty easily.
