The IMMAF European Open saw some very competitive matches and some slick submissions on day 2 as the semi-finals are now set.

IMMAF Worlds finalist Anja Saxmark got a submission victory to ink her spot in the flyweight semi’s, while Icelandic representative Sunna Rannveig got a split decision over Italy’s llaria Norcia on the other side of the bracket.

We initially didn’t think we were going to have a women’s bantamweight tournament, but we saw Gabriella Ringblom of Sweden and  Varpru Rinne of Finland take home unanimous decision in that category in two quarterfinal matches.

The semi-finals in the rest of the divisions happen Saturday.
