Trevin Giles only wants the fights that are going to get him to the UFC.
Like every young mixed martial artist Giles goal is the bright lights and packed stadiums of the UFC. The undefeated middleweight is currently 8-0 with eight finishes (3 KO’s and 5 submissions) and is scheduled to take on Ryan Spann at LFA 3. It’s a fight Giles originally considered passing on.
“I am at the point where I am trying to pick my fights more wisely, I am trying to pick the fights that make sense, I almost didn’t fight Ryan Spann just becuase he’s coming off a loss, but I was told that this is the fight I should take by a guy I really should be listening to. I actually spoke to Mick Maynard and he said he thinks I should take the fight and that’s why I took it,” Giles said in an interview with thefighthouse.com. “I am just trying to be smarter about the fights, and fight the fights that make sense, the fights that are going to… move me up and get me going to the UFC that’s the goal.”
Giles is set to become the only fighter to headline events with Legacy Fighting Championship, Resurrection Fighting Alliance and the newly formed Legacy Fighting Alliance after the merger of the Resurrection and Legacy promotions. He’s definitely made a name for himself and at this point is patiently waiting for the UFC to come calling.
“I’m not sure exactly what they’re waiting on, I am sure they’re aware of me, I don’t know what they’re waiting on,” Giles said. “I just keep hearing people say oh well maybe after this fight, maybe after this fight and I’m honestly at the point where I’m just going to take everything fight by fight and keep doing what I’m doing and when they decide to come get me, that’s when they decide to come get me. I’ m not going to do too much worrying about them right now. They’ll get me on their own time.”
If Giles keeps doing what he’s doing it is only a matter of time before he’ll be stepping into the octagon.
