MMA Fighting confirmed with sources that Krause has agreed to serve as a late-notice opponent to face Trevin Giles (11-2) on Saturday’s UFC 247 preliminaries, following the withdrawal of Giles’s originally scheduled opponent Antonio Arroyo.
Giles and Arroyo successfully made weight at the official weigh-ins on Friday morning.
Krause (27-7), who has competed at welterweight and lightweight for the UFC, is currently on a six-fight winning streak. Giles, a native of Texas who currently resides in Houston, has lost two straight after beginning his career 11-0.
UFC 247 takes place at Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday, with the main card airing on pay-per-view through the ESPN+ streaming service.
