Trevin Giles faints backstage, UFC Vegas 5 fight against Kevin Holland called off


UFC Vegas 5 lost another fight just moments after the main card was due to begin after Trevin Giles passed out backstage before his middleweight fight against Kevin Holland.

The announcement was made on the UFC show that Giles was preparing to walk to the cage when he suddenly passed out.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission immediately called for the fight to be called off with Giles receiving medical treatment after passing out.

A behind-the-scenes video showed Giles awake and alert as he sat in a chair talking to medical staff with his coaches nearby.

This is the second game pulled from the UFC Vegas 5 card on fight night after a lightweight bout between Gerald Meerschaert and Ed Herman was also pulled at the last minute after Meerschaert tested positive for COVID-19.
