Dricus Du Plessis To Look For Second UFC Win, Facing Trevin Giles on March 20th UFC Card

After picking up his UFC debut win in 2020, Dricus Du Plessis has been booked against Trevin Giles for a March 20th UFC “Fight Night” card. First reported by Farah Hannoun and Nolan King of MMA Junkie, the fight joins a growing card that does not have a location reported for it at the moment.

Du Plessis made his UFC debut in October, stepping in for Rodolfo Vieira in a fight against Markus Perez. Du Plessis earned a stoppage victory in the first round of the fight, dropping Perez with a left hook in the fourth minute of action. The win was Du Plessis’ first appearance in UFC following a strong run in KSW and EFC.

Giles will enter the bout following a strong 2020 that saw him earn two victories. Giles started the year in February, where he defeated James Krause in a split decision. He returned in November, where he stopped Bevon Lewis in the third round with strikes.

The wins for Giles in 2020 saw him bounce back from a two-fight losing streak.
