Main Card

Trevin Giles

Trevin Giles is at his prime with this 27-year-old fighter hails from Houston, Texas in the USA. Known as “The Problem” inside the MMA cage, this middleweight stands at six-flat and works out at the W4R Training Center. Giles owns a 12-2 professional MMA record with 10 of his wins split between knockouts and submissions. He earned his ticket to the UFC after being spotted in Legacy Fighting Championship and won his first two fights in the organization. Giles also went to a slump losing his next two fights but in UFC 247, during his last registered match, he was put inside the same cage against James Krause and won. That match was close and it was a split decision by the judges.

Kevin Holland

Kevin Holland is known as “Trailblazer” inside the MMA cage and he resides at Fort Worth, Texas in the USA. He stands at six-foot-three and this middleweight polishes his skills at the Phalanx MMA Academy fight team. Holland now holds a 17-5 professional record with eight wins by way of knockout along with six submissions. Making his UFC debut, he lost his first bout but went on to a three-fight winning streak defeating John Philipps, Gerald Meerschaert and Alessio di Chirico. Tasting his second UFC loss against Brendan Allen, he made his way to the cage once again in May 2020 on UFC on ESPN 8. He was put inside the same cage with Anthony Hernandez and knocked him out in the 39th second during the first round.
