<big><big><big>[font=vladimir script]Featherweight:[/font]</big></big></big>

Talons Out v Wyvern:

As in most matches, they both go out to try and do the wedge, in which Talons Out gets under and clamps, however Wyvern flips, and breaks the clamp, whilst breaking free. Oh dear. Laz comes in again, and lifts Wyvern. Wyvern is upside-down, however that can easily be fixed via torque reaction, whilst Talons Out tries to come in again. And lifts. And lifts. And lifts. Ad infinitum.

Eventually, the driver makes a mistake. Wyvern gets under, flips, and Talons Out flies. On landing, it is clear that the lifter is broken, and the wedge is fucked. Wyvern gets under again, and flips him again. On the second landing, Talons Out is apparently dead.

Winner by KO at 1:43, Wyvern&#33;

<big><big><big>[font=vladimir script]Heavyweight:[/font]</big></big></big>

Aphelion v Permafrost:

As normal, the robots go out and do the wedging thing, and Permafrost gets under. However, Aphelion wiggles off, and manages to get under Permafrost's side... who then also wiggles off.

This game of cat and mouse continues for a while, with both getting under the other, and then the other buggering off before the weapon can be used on him.

Eventually, Permafrost takes a moment or two too long to get off, and Aphelion gets a flip in. Aphelion throws over Permafrost, and then gets another in. And another. And another. Until Permafrost is against the wall. Fortunately for Badnik, the narrow gap between the outer wall and the inner wall is too small for Permafrost to fit in, and he just bounces off the outer wall.

Then Permafrost manages to run off, and then try and get back under Aphelion.

The cat and mouse game then proceeds to continue until the bell.

Aggression: 8-7 Permafrost
Damage: 9-6 Aphelion
Strategy: 8-7 Aphelion

By 24-21 Judges' Decision, the match goes to Aphelion&#33;

MiDAS v Food Grade Plutonium:

As the match begins, both robots go out and try and get under the other. With it's slightly higher speed and traction, the edible nuclear fuel gets under MiDAS and starts to lift. MiDAS attempts to j-hook off, however, FGP's lifter is too fast, and merely feebly spins it's wheels. MiDAS is flipped, and whilst it tries to use it's axe to self-right, FGP clamps down and smashes MiDAS into the wall. This dislodges MiDAS, who gets thrown back onto it's wheels.

They both go in, and this time MiDAS wins, and manages to lift FGP over, whilst smashing at it with the axe, and trying to pin FGP. However, FGP drives away, and self-rights with the lifter.

Most of the match happens this way, and so I will skip to the buzzer:

Aggression: 9-6 MiDAS
Damage: 8-7 MiDAS
Strategy: 10-5 Food Grade Plutonium

By 23-22 Judges' Decision, the match goes to Food Grade Plutonium&#33;

Trident v 02's Mentally Handicapped Cousin:

IDK why Jack

Solifuge v Wyvern:

As the fight starts, they both go at each other, and Solifuge gets under. He goes for a clamp, however Wyvern immediately flips and frees itself. Wyvern wheelies a tad, and Solifuge gets under again, with the same thing happening. Occasionally, Wyvern gets a flip in.

After two minutes, it is clear that there are some problems with Solifuge
