In the full contact Dawid dominated his category winning all 3 fights by waza ari scoring with body punches. Kirsten had 3 tough scraps, all going the distance.

Blake Collins also fought well at middleweight and was very unlucky to not get an outright victory in his first match and then lost to a very experienced dutch fighter. He missed out on 3rd place only due to weight difference.
