May 5, 2012, Ultimate MMA Academy, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Originally, Antonio was supposed to fight bodybuilder and san da champion, Zawen Anwar, but he pulled out of the fight twice. Steven Yeoh, who was having his first fight, offered to fight Antonio. By Steven’s own omission, his level was lower than Antonio’s, but he had heart and was willing to get in the ring. For Antonio, the fight was still a learning experience, as Steven’s weight of 111 kgs posed him a number of problems in the grappling and helped him prepare to fight larger opponents.

Due to a lack of opponents in the lager divisions, Antonio fights in both light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions, sometimes against people who outweigh him by as much as nearly 40 kgs.
