    I’ll admit I’ve never heard of Giles until yesterday and never watched any of his fights. I understand the whole upset factor, facing a last minute opponent with nothing to lose...

    However, apparently Giles winning would be an upset. Fanduel has
    Krause -135 favorite
    Giles +116

    I know Krause ain’t no world beater at WW and has UFC losses at LW.... Sure he’s on a nice win streak but no great wins...so how is he favored jumping up to MW on a days notice?

    just how bad is Trevor Giles?

    Krause is on a 6 fight win streak. He's legit.

    Giles has lost/been submitted in his last 2, Krause is on a 4 fight winning streak. Giles has the size advantage but he’s at a disadvantage in every other category. Experience, activity, resume, skill set, etc...

    Thought the same thing, was gonna put money on krause expecting him to a 5 to 1 dog minimum considering it’s literally 1 day notice and jumping up 2 divisions but nope.

    He still hasn’t beaten any top 15 WWs and is fighting on a days notice Vs a MW, former LHW.

    giles has been stopped in his last two fights, is he that bad? He holds a win over current LHW Ryan Spann who has been impressive lately.

    He's so bad you can't even spell his name properly.

    Didnt Krausse submit King Mo at SUG with a standing guillotine? He's legit

    Krause took it cause he helped Cummings prepare for the last fight where Cummings subbed him. Krause will probably get through the barrage and land a sub himself.
    Krause takes winnable fights all day over stiff comp, look at his wins. He still doesnt hold his chin down using height as a defense, he will be brutally KO’d one day.

    Krause has 22 finishes in 27 victories. He is 8-3 in the UFC on a 6 fight win streak and Giles is 2-2 in the UFC coming off 2 losses.

    I can see why he is the favorite, even if at MW.

    Yeah, I vaguely remember him stiff and chin in the air on TUF, fighting to get into the house, and I'm pretty sure he got murked by some kickboxer whose name escapes me, something like Justin Lawrence I think, he was 4-0 or something at the time. Krause got a hammering. Giles isn't a huge hitter but he can crack a bit, I think he fights smart and uses his size to win a close decision.

    First off Krause is 183ish lbs during a camp. He is not small. 6 fight win streak, last two were against legit black belts. One being Warley Alves, the only man to submit Coby Covington and the other Sergio Moraes someone who lost to warley alves , Anthony rocco martiin , and Krause in his last three.

    Trevor Giles makes and repeats stupid mistakes, putting himself him bad positions. He loves to grapple, that is his comfort zone, but has good hands although zac cummings dropped and subbed him.

    Krause looked like a world beater in his last fight and Giles looked green.

    I agree with the odds but its Giles fight to lose. Still i'm picking Giles.

    They're factoring the experience gap, Krause' winning streak compared to Giles' 2 fight skid and Krause' general well-roundedness to be able to get a win even if it's a grinder with not as much action.

    Makes sense he would be a slight favorite.

    Trevin Giles is actually a pretty talented fighter. He’s good all around boxing, BJJ, and wrestling.

    Problem is, he’s a full time police office that isn’t fully committed to MMA. Not to mention he works night shifts on his Instagram so he’s fighting crackheads at 3am and going into the gym at 7am.
