A Georgian winner was guaranteed in the men's under 90 kilogram category as team-mates Beka Gviniashvili and Varlam Liparteliani faced off for the title, with Gviniashvili proving the strongest.
Hungary's Krisztian Toth sealed the first bronze medal on offer by virtue of a victory over Shirali Juraev of Azerbaijan, while Mongolian Otgonbaatar Lkhagvasuren kept up his country's impressive showing at the tournament by beating Sweden's Marcus Nyman to the final podium position.
The raucous support inside the arena were then treated to another all-Georgian final in the men's heavyweight over 100kg division as Levani Matiashvili got the better of Adam Okruashvili to take gold in a thrilling final.
Ukraine's Oleksandr Gordiienko triumphed over Russian Anton Krivobokov to take the opening bronze medal before Russia did manage to secure a podium spot thanks to Aslan Kambiev's victory against Abdullo Tangriev of Uzbekistan.
There was to be no Georgian monopoly of the men's medals on the final day of the Grand Prix however as Azerbaijan's rising talent Elmar Gasimov won the under 100kg category thanks to a hard-fought win against Germany's Dimitri Peters.
Karl-Richard Frey added to the German's medal total by beating Azerbaijan's Elkhan Mammadov to bronze, while Latvia's Jevgenijs Borodavko denied the host nation another podium spot as he ousted Georgia's Alexsandre Mskhaladze.
