On the reality show Haynes was coached by Tito Ortiz and demonstrated a lot of heart and grit. He surprised many in episode seven by scoring a split decision over Tait Fletcher who came into the house with a 5-1 record. Next, he met up with Jesse Forbes in the semi-finals and resorted to his old favorite, the guillotine choke. He caught Forbes in it in round two to advance to the finals against Michael Bisping, also coached by Ortiz on the show.
Bisping was just too much for Haynes though and finished him with a TKO at 4:14 of round two. The loss was tough for Josh, but he made an excellent showing of himself on the show.
After the match with Bisping he fought twice more in the UFC, both ended in losses to Rory Singer and Luke Cummo. Since he has gained two wins against one loss, neither has come by guillotine choke. His latest win happened one month ago today at IFL Las Vegas. Currently, Josh Haynes has a symmetrical 9-9 record.
