Antonio said, “This fight was significant for me because it was the first time I fought someone who has higher BJJ and Muay Thai level than me. Hafiz was more aggressive than some of my previous opponents. He was able to resist takedown from the clinch, and when we went to the ground, he pulled guard. Step by step, I am seeing the quality and level of Malaysian MMA fighters improving.”
