A professional mixed martial arts fighter has been convicted by a Sacramento County jury in a domestic violence case.

Kyacey Uscola on Friday was found guilty of battery on a spouse or cohabitant, battery with serious bodily injury and corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release. The jury also found true that Uscola personally inflicted great bodily injury upon the victim under circumstances involving domestic violence and that he has a prior domestic violence conviction.

Uscola, 32, is a professionally trained mixed martial arts specialist who has fought several professional fights for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. On June 15, 2013, he assaulted the mother of his child, causing her to suffer significant injuries, including a punctured lung, eight broken ribs, two lumbar fractures, an orbital fracture and a life-threatening pancreas laceration, authorities said.

Uscola is to be sentenced Feb. 14 by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette.
