Three weeks after fainting just prior to his planned walk to the cage on Aug. 1, Trevin Giles is booked for his next fight.
Giles (12-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) will take on Bevon Lewis (7-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in a middleweight bout at a UFC event on Nov. 7. The location and venue of the event has not been officially announced at this time.
Multiple people with knowledge of the situation recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. Giles also mentioned the fight on his official Instagram page.
Ahead of his fight against Kevin Holland at UFC on ESPN+ 31, Giles fainted in the runway, causing the bout to be called off moments before the main card broadcast begun. Prior to his syncopal episode, Giles had snapped a two-fight losing streak by defeating James Krause at UFC 247 in February.
Lewis picked up his first UFC win at UFC on ESPN 24 in January, defeating Dequan Townsend by unanimous decision. Prior to that, Lewis, a UFC development deal signee, lost his first two UFC fights to Uriah Hall and Darren Stewart.
With the addition, the Nov. 7 lineup includes:
- Brendan Allen vs. Ian Heinisch
- Vanessa Melo vs. Sarah Moras
- Kyle Daukaus vs. Dustin Stoltzfus
- Dustin Jacoby vs. Justin Ledet
- Trevin Giles vs. Bevon Lewis
