Phillippe Gomis vs. Stefan Leko
Kirkwood Walker vs. Cyril Abidi
Michael McDonald vs. Combat Zijo
Alexander Semenovich vs. Samir Benazzouz
Stefan Leko vs. Cyril Abidi. Excellent fight. Both are very quick and active, and were more than willing to trade blows. The defense could have been better, but weak defense kind of makes for a better fight in cases like this.
Combat Zijo vs. Samir Benazzouz
Final: Stefan Leko vs. Samir Benazzouz
Ernesto Hoost vs. Igor Vovchanchin. I give Igor credit for being willing to take on a fighter the quality of Hoost, who has way may talent and way better technique. I tend to doubt Igor could have hung with him before he got into shooting, but it was obvious that all the shoots have screwed up Igor's instincts as he was going for takedowns when he knew Hoost was going to kick even though that kind of thing is illegal under these rules. Hoost kept attacking Igor's left leg right above the knee until Igor was in such bad shape that he'd fall everytime Hoost hit the area.
Peter Aerts vs. Sam Greco. A good fight while it lasted, but the finish looked awfully fishy.

Mirko Filipovic vs. Mike Bernardo
Samir Benaszzoul vs. Ray Sefo
Matt Skelton vs. Jerome Le Banner
Xhavit Bajrami vs. Ernesto Hoost
Stefan Leko vs. Sam Greco
Hiromi Amada vs. Andy Hug
Musashi vs. Masaaki Satake
Lloyd Van Dams vs. Peter Aerts
Sam Greco vs. Ray Sefo
Musashi vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. Good fight with a lot of action. Musashi had some bad luck like getting hurt by an accidental headbutt, but overall he wasn't that impressive.
Ernesto Hoost vs. Andy Hug. Both men fought really hard and were always working. They threw a lot of blows, and they had a lot of them. Hug bloodied Hoost's nose. However, it was Hoost who was picking Hug apart. His low kicks are so nasty.
Jerome Le Banner vs. Peter Aerts. Le Banner couldn't seem to get going, but he was really pushing the action. I was expecting Aerts to kill him because he was aggressive to the point of sloppiness, leaning and such. Aerts did put him down twice in the first minute, but Le Banner bullied Aerts into the corner and KO'd him with a killer left.
Sam Greco vs. Mirko Filipovic. Greco hurt his foot kicking Mirko in the knee and was never the same the rest of the fight. It seemed more like he was beat by his own injuries than by Mirko, not that Mirko didn't get the job done.
Ernesto Hoost vs. Jerome Le Banner. Round 1 & round 2 were like totally different fights. In round one Hoost couldn't get going and Le Banner was overpowering him and nailing him with some nasty punches. In round 2 Hoost hurt Le Banner almost immediately with one punch and then had a big flurry for the KO.
K-1 Super Fight: Harry Hooft vs. Stefan Leko
Final: Ernesto Hoost vs. Mirko Filipovic. I think everyone knew that Hoost was going to win this, but they still went totally nuts for the third round as Filipovic was clearly on his last leg.
