== Biography ==
Uscola was born and raised in Idaho and started Wrestling when he was a the age of seven. He played football and continued wrestling, becoming a state champion in high school while attending Minico High School in Rupert, Idaho. He enrolled in Southwestern Oregon Community College hoping to obtain a Business Management degree. He was on the wrestling team while at Southwestern Oregon and was an All American his sophomore year. He transferred to Eastern Oregon University for his junior year in college because his former school did not have a football team.

== Mixed Martial Arts Career ==
When he was eighteen years of age he watched his first MMA fight and told himself that he could be successful in that, after hardly training at all he stepped in for his first fight and won by knockout.

After fifteen fights Uscola was asked by the newest MMA company Bodog Fight to come in and fight for them. Uscola agreed and had only seven days to train before the fight. Kyacey lost by a Triangle Choke in the second round. Bodog was so impressed that he had only seven days to prepare and almost winning his fight, they decided to give him three more fights (winning two of the three) before the company shut down.

Uscola defeated PRIDE Fighting Championship veteran Akira Shoji in 2006 for King of the Cage. The fight was set to be a title fight but the day of the fight, KOTC changed it to a non title fight. Kyacey lost to Xavier Foupa-Pokam and then two fights later lost to Mike Guymon at a King of the Cage event.

Uscola stepped up on 10 days notice to fight Jorge Santiago at Affliction Trilogy, but the event was canceled and the bout never took place. He next fought for Urijah Faber‘s California Kid Promotions, winning his fight against Richard Blake via submission. He then lost a fight by decision against future TUF castmate Kyle Noke. Uscola
defeated Koffi Adzitso by TKO, improving his record to 18â€Â“15.

=== The Ultimate Fighter ===
He attended the open tryouts for The Ultimate Fighter 11 and was selected as a contestant for the show.

In the elimination round, to gain entry into the TUF house, Uscola defeated Brent Cooper via an early first round knockout. Tito Ortiz used his second pick to choose Uscola, making him the third overall pick.

Uscola fought Rich Attonito in the preliminary round of the competition. Uscola was disqualified after he hit Attonito with two illegal knees in the first round.

Uscola was chosen for one of the spots in the wild card selection, squaring off against teammate Kris McCray for the final spot in the quarter finals. After receiving news of the birth of his son, Uscola fought McCray and was defeated via submission americana in the second round, eliminating Uscola from the competition for a second time.

After filming Season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter, Uscola was attacked by two American pit-bulls, after a brief confrontation, the dogs injured his shoulder, hand, and penis. Uscola was able to start training again after ten days of rehabilitation.

=== Post-TUF Career ===
Uscola’s first fight since competing on The Ultimate Fighter 11 took place on September 9, 2010 at TPF 6 High Stakes, where he faced off against former WEC Light Heavyweight Champion Doug Marshall in a Middleweight contest. The early exchanges on the feet saw Marshall get the better of the action. Uscola held his own, but Marshall landed a big right uppercut that seemed to catch the attention of Uscola. Uscola backed away, reset, then shot in and drug Marshall to the floor. Marshall did fine in the early going and looked as if he’d stall the action and earn a stand-up. But Uscola advanced to the back, sunk in his hooks and unleashed of barrage of powerful ground-and-pound punches that actually left Marshall unconscious on the floor.

== Personal Life ==
While filming The Ultimate Fighter 11, Uscola had his first child, a son named Charles Champ Uscola.
