Exciting middleweight finishers, Trevin ‘The Problem’ Giles, and Bevon ‘The Extraordinary Gentleman’ Lewis are both set to make their second Octagon appearances of the year – with the two scheduled to meet at a UFC Fight Night event on November 7th. A location and venue for the pairing are yet to be determined by the promotion.
Returning to winning ways at UFC 247 in February – Giles took a narrow split judging victory over veteran, James Krause in a three-round affair – on a single day’s notice. Giles was slated to meet with Kevin Holland at a UFC Fight Night Vegas event on August 1st. – but the pairing was shelved on fight night after Giles fainted ahead of his Octagon walk.
Also rebounding from a pair of defeats, 29-year-old striker, Lewis featured at UFC Fight Night Raleigh in January – scoring a unanimous judging win over Dequan Townsend. San Antonio native, Giles announced the news of the 185-pound meeting on his official Instagram account.
Giles, 28 – has amassed a 3-2 promotional record, following a brief stint under the LFA banner where he managed a split judging win over fellow UFC feature, Ryan Spann back in February of 2017.
In promotional victories, the Texan has bested, James Bochnovic, Antônio Braga Neto, as well as his February triumph over Krause. Dropping two consecutive losses last year – Giles fell to two third-round submission defeats against Zak Cummings via an arm-triangle, and then a guillotine blemish opposite Roufusport mainstay, Gerald Meerschaert.
Riverside, California born striker, Lewis has landed a 1-2 UFC record – following two separate successes on Dana White’s Contenders Series, first over Elias Urbina, and then Alton Cunningham.
Prior to his judging win over Townsend – Lewis had dropped a pair of defeats to experienced middleweight contenders, Darren ‘The Dentist’ Stewart, and TUF finalist, Uriah ‘Primetime’ Hall in his only professional losses from ten outings.
