The second fight was the first 84 kg category semi-final. Here met Tomas Pakutinskas from Taurage (he replaced R.Agrba) and Tadas Levickas from Vilnius.

Finally in the second round during one Tomasevicius`attempt to grip Valancius by legs, the latter met him with leg strike to the head. Slaphappy Tomasevicius could not defence any more, so the fight had been interrupted.
