AUGUSTA, Ga. -- An MMA fighting coach was in court Wednesday.

Chris Hauser was sentenced to six years total -- three in prison and three on probation.

Hauser was charged after selling marijuana to an undercover cop back in May.

Hauser coached Tyrone "Teestea" Mims at the Augusta Fight Club. Mims had only been with the Augusta Fight Club for three months before dying during his first sanctioned fight in Charleston back in August.

A number of Hauser's friends and fellow fighters showed up to court in support for him.
