Gets back in win column
September 17, 2022
Giles defeated Louis Cosce via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Coming off back-to-back knockout losses and potentially fighting for his job, Giles needed a victory any way he could secure one, and he did just that in what was an extremely uneventful fight. Giles was the more effective man for the duration of the bout, landing more than twice as many strikes (45-21) as Cosce, in addition to securing a pair of takedowns. Neither fighter was in trouble at any point, which is fine for Trevin considering the result was seemingly never in doubt. This win will ensure Giles will remain with the UFC for a while longer.
Cosce up next
June 3, 2022
Giles will fight Louis Cosce in a middleweight fight at a UFC event on September 10, Marcel Dorff of reports.
Giles has the opportunity to end his two fight loss streak against Cosce. Giles has both a three inch height and reach advantage over Cosce. Both fighters average over 1.0 takedowns per 15 minutes, though Giles is significantly more accurate on his attempts. Giles sports a 64% accuracy, compared to Cosce's 11%. The Texas born fighter has much more experience than Cosce, who lost his only UFC fight to date.
Second straight knockout loss
January 22, 2022
Giles lost to Michael Morales via TKO (punches) at 4:06 of Round 3 at UFC 270 on Saturday in Anaheim.
A winner in five of his first seven UFC bouts, Giles' chin has betrayed him in his past two fights. He looked pretty good in the early going of this one, firing off some leg kicks and keeping Morales off balance, but the longer the fight went on, the more damage Giles absorbed. The 29-year-old does have some stopping power in his arsenal, but Giles isn't the type of explosive athlete to quickly make up ground if he falls behind on the scorecards. Giles has now suffered back-to-back knockout defeats, the only two in his professional career to date. The Houston native finds himself firmly in must-win territory his next time out.
Taking on young stud
October 12, 2021
Giles will face Michael Morales in a welterweight bout at the UFC event Jan. 22, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Giles is looking to bounce back following the first knockout loss of his career back in July against Dricus Du Plessis. Giles will take his 5-3 career record in the UFC against a 21-year-old phenom in Morales who will be making his debut with the promotion.
First KO loss of career
July 10, 2021
Giles lost to Dricus Du Plessis via KO (punches) at 1:41 of Round 2 at UFC 264 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Giles isn't known as a fighter with durability issues -- he had never been knocked out before Saturday -- but all it took was one massive right hand from Du Plessis to turn his lights out. The stoppage came on the heels of a very even back-and-forth fight. Giles looked fine on the feet, but his tendency to rush forward with his hands down ultimately cost him. Giles has fought better than his 5-3 career mark with the UFC would lead you to believe. He's had issues defending submissions, but his explosiveness and power are legitimate. The soon-to-be 29-year-old will need a rebound effort his next time out.
