Pulls away in Round 3
November 7, 2020
Giles defeated Bevon Lewis via TKO (punches) at 1:26 of Round 3at UFC on ESPN+ 40 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Giles and Lewis got off to a fast-paced start with high-volume exchanges, but it was Giles that put the big stamp on the round when he knocked down Lewis with a left jab. Mix that with an earlier takedown and slightly lower volume from Lewis, and Giles presumably took the first round. Giles was the aggressor in Round 2, holding the center of the Octagon to stalk Lewis. The volume was lower from both fighters in this frame, but Giles maintained his effective jab. Lewis came out in Round 3 and shot for a takedown, but Giles sprawled and the two ended up back on the feet. Giles backed Lewis up against the fence and landed a beautiful 1-2 combination that forced Lewis to curl up. A few follow-up shots sent Lewis stumbling to the ground and referee Mark Smith called off the action. Giles has now won two in a row, improving his record to 3-2 with the UFC.

Describes heart irregularities

Giles was set to face Kevin Holland in a middleweight bout at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on Saturday, but fainted in the locker room prior to the fight and was subsequently transported to the hospital. While he appears to be awake and in good spirits -- even mentioning "unfinished business" (presumably with respect to his fighting future) -- it's unclear if or when the 27-year-old intends to get back in the cage.
Faints in locker room, fight scrapped
August 1, 2020
Giles will no longer face Kevin Holland after he fainted in the locker room and the Nevada Athletic Commission was forced to call off the fight.
On a card full of cancellations and late-replacements, another rarity occurred that will be a tough break for many DFS players. It's unclear at this time what exactly occurred with Giles from a medical perspective, but he won't be making the walk to the Octagon as a (+235) betting underdog. Hopefully, the middleweight fighter will be cleared of anything serious. Per Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Giles is awake and alert but being taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.
