Manuel Concepcion Jr. was convicted last month on aggravated manslaughter and weapons charges stemming from the July 2011 attack on 45-year-old Ignacio Castro, who died about three weeks later from his wounds.
Besides the sentence he received this week on those charges, Concepcion also received a concurrent four-year term for an unrelated cocaine possession charge.
Atlantic County prosecutors had sought a life sentence, citing Concepcion's lengthy criminal record.
Prosecutors have said Concepcion stabbed Castro in the heart with scissors, but have not said what spurred the brawl. The 35-year-old Atlantic City man had denied delivering the fatal blow.
