The -63 category saw a new winner in this round. Ramy Saleh grabbed the win in Round 2 while he had to settle for silver in the previous round. In the -68 category, Rayan Delbany continued to dominate and overcame his opponent Obaida Faraj who came as a close runner-up for the second time, and Rene Abou Halka settling for third. Nothing new in the -74 category as Leonardo Chaiban faced Marc Zainoun in the final and the former defeated the latter for the second consecutive time in the Lebanese Taekwondo League. The Moussally Brothers both stayed on top in the -80 and heavy weight categories with Tarek Moussally and Jad Moussally winning their categories respectively. Finally, the -87 saw Jad Maalouf take the lead again and getting closer to win the title in his weight categories.
