A mixed martial arts specialist has been sentenced to 10 years in state prison for felony assault on the mother of his child.

Kyacey Uscola, 32, was sentenced Friday by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette. Uscola received and additional 10 months in county jail for a separate misdemeanor assault, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.

On June 13, Uscola, a professionally trained mixed martial arts specialist, assaulted the mother of his child, inflicting significant injuries, including a punctured lung, eight broken ribs, two lumbar fractures, an orbital fracture and a life-threatening pancreas laceration, authorities said.

A Sacramento County jury in January convicted Uscola of battery on a spouse or cohabitant, battery with serious bodily injury, and corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant. The jury also found true that Uscola personally inflicted great bodily injury on the victim under circumstances involving domestic violence and that he a had a prior domestic violence conviction.
