Update: 5:16PM A BANDIDOS bikie faces being deported to Fiji after he serves jail time over an unprovoked group bashing of soldiers at a Brisbane nightclub.
Joshua Nabuto Vosuqa, who has lived in Australia since he was three months old, risks having his residency revoked by the end of his second prison stint since he was a teenager.
A member of the Bandidos Centro chapter, a multicultural inner-city clique of so-called "Nike bikies", Vosuqa was jailed for 18 months by a District Court Judge on Thursday.
A jury convicted him for assault in company over a brawl outside Casablanca nightclub in Caxton St, Paddington, in February 2012.
The court heard Vosuqa and his companions donned Bandidos leather vests before starting a melee that left one off-duty soldier bleeding on the ground and another with a black eye.
Vosuqa, who attacked and gloated over one victim on the ground, had to be dragged away twice by his friend.
His companions Matthew Kevin Mackay and Joshua Josaia Bose Maiwa pleaded guilty to their roles in the fracas but Vosuqa fought his charges.
Vosuqa's solicitor had advised he would face separate deportation proceedings by the Immigration Department, defence barrister Peter Nolan told the court.
"His application for citizenship was "on hold" because of the court case," Mr Nolan said.
Mr Nolan had pleaded with the jury for "a fair go" for his client, despite public and media hostility towards bikies.
A Bandidos club mate was charged weeks ago with attempted murder over stabbings in a Fortitude Valley nightclub.
An Immigration spokesman would not comment on Vosuqa's case, but said any visa holder who was jailed could have their visa cancelled on character grounds.
Brisbane District Court judge Deborah Richards said the soldiers had been "just sitting there enjoying themselves" when Mackay abused one for supposedly looking at him.
Mackay punched the soldier before Vosuqa set upon another who tried to intervene.
Judge Richards said Vosuqa had "a very serious criminal history ... given you are a young man".
Vosuqa will be eligible for parole in nine months.
