329 Date (3/29) of 2003 when light heavyweight Josh Haynes needed only 0:34 to submit Jim Pope via guillotine choke. The win was Haynes' second in a row after being TKO'd in his debut against Larry Vandervort.  Over his next nine fights Haynes compiled a 5-4 record with three of those wins also coming by guillotine choke. In all Haynes produced a 7-5 record before getting a chance on the UFC's smash hit, The Ultimate Fighter 3.

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.
