UFC 270 is set to get going this weekend from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on Saturday, January 22nd. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a heavyweight title fight between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane, but there’s plenty of action earlier in the day. The main card is scheduled for 10:00 p.m. ET and will air on ESPN+ PPV where you can watch Michael Morales vs. Trevin Giles in a welterweight bout.
Morales enters this matchup still undefeated with a 12-0 record in his professional fighting career. At only 22 years of age, Morales is one of the brightest stars in the game and hopefully has a fruitful future ahead of him. Most recently, he won by unanimous decision against Nikolay Veretennikov in September of 2021. He has won nine of his fights by knockout.
Giles has a 14-3 record and is hoping to get back into the win column this weekend after suffering a second-round knockout against Dricus Du Plessis in July of 2021. Heading into that fight, Giles had a nice three-match win streak but just couldn’t figure out Du Plessis. Giles is a solid all-around fighter with knockout power and some good submission skills. He struggles to defend the submission, but that shouldn’t be an issue against Morales.
