Heather Foreman sent along the following:

Fresno, CA – February 5th, 2009: – Josh “Bring The Pain” Haynes is the latest addition to the already stacked card in Fresno , CA at the Selland Arena on Feb 13th.

In the Ultimate Fighter, Josh won a controversial victory against Tait Fletcher by decision after the second round. In the semifinals, he defeated Jesse Forbes by guillotine chock in the second round. He was defeated by Michael Bisping in the finals due to strikes.

Haynes is on the reality TV show Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge which debuted on Friday August 10, 2007.
The proud married man and father of three has been headlining shows for smaller promotions after departing from UFC. What he brought to the cage caught the eyes of the Wargod and KSP execs. He is already scheduled to fight Rafael Del Real at the Valentine’s Eve Massacre in Fresno Friday the 13th and is also scheduled to headline an early spring show against fellow UFC vet Vernon “Tiger” White. Josh Haynes will then enter into the middleweight division to compete for titles against current Wargods BJ Lacy, Nate James, and Kyacey Uscola.
Josh Haynes states, “I'm very excited to be fighting for Wargods/KSP. Too many times since I have left the UFC, I get calls from all of these other promotions saying to come fight our toughest guy for a Main Event. Then I show up, give the crowd what they want which is a great show with some heavy hands and then that's it. I want to be part of an organization that stands for something more and wants to promote me as a fighter and not just part of a single fight. I like what Wargods/KSP is doing and believe they have the tools to be a force in the MMA world. I will fight for them as long as they will have me and continue to support them, because they believe in their fighters and support their growth in the MMA community.”
