Rome European Open bronze medallist YANG Junxia (CHN) defeated Tokyo Grand Slam bronze medallist JOUNG Da-Woon (KOR) in the -63kg final. After 40 seconds world number 14 JOUNG was penalised with a shido for not taking a grip along with her opponent. YANG improved and trapped JOUNG on the tatami with a pin which almost ended as a kami-shiho-gatame.

In the first semi-final YANG upset favourite Martyna TRAJDOS (GER) who arrived in Mongolia on the back of earning a silver medal at the Budapest Grand Prix. Chinese fighter YANG needed just 42 seconds to seal her progression as she caught TRAJDOS with a juji-gatame and the German but no choice but to submit. In the second semi-final Asian Championships bronze medallist TSEND-AYUSH Tserennadmid (MGL) and JOUNG cancelled each other out for four minutes as the scoreless contest required golden score. The home judoka lost out 52 seconds later when she was penalised for an overly defensive grip.

 
The first bronze medal was won by Tashkent Grand Prix bronze medallist Marian URDABAYEVA (KAZ) who countered a uchi-mata attempt from TSEND-AYUSH by picking for her up a ura-ange and a yuko score with 18 seconds left. The second bronze medal was claimed by TRAJDOS who defeated Dusseldorf Grand Prix winner Marta LABAZINA (RUS). Both judoka were penalised with a shido after 30 seconds for not taking a grip as they eased into the contest and the German struck with 25 seconds left to score a waza-ari from a ko-uchi-gari.
