Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Cummins played many sports, including wrestling and football, while at Warwick High School (Pennsylvania). As a college wrestler for Penn State University, Cummins was a two time NCAA Division I All-American, finishing 4th and 2nd at the 2003 and 2004 National Championships respectively and 2004 runner-up as well as a two-time US National Team Member. He made the transition to mixed martial arts in 2010. He made his professional debut on December 4, 2010, facing Terrell Brown at Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu II. Cummins won his debut fight by first round TKO.
Cummins saw his fight career stalled in 2011 when he and fellow MMA fighter Eric Bradley were sentenced to jail in a case relating to felony burglary charges resulting from, what Cummins considers a fraternity prank at Penn State University. However the prosecution did not see it as a "prank" indeed there were multiple fraternities victimized, with items of a considerable value being taken; laptops, televisions etc.
Cummins fought Tasi Edwards at ProElite 3 on January 21, 2012. He won the fight via arm-triangle.
Cummins then fought Ricky Pulu at Xplode Fight Series: Revancha on March 16, 2013. He won via first round TKO.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
For his second fight with the promotion, Cummins was scheduled to fight Francimar Barroso on June 7, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 42. However, Barroso was forced out of the bout due to an injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Roger Narvaez. Cummins won the fight via second round TKO.
Cummins was expected to face Gian Villante on December 9, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 102. However, Cummins pulled out of the fight on December 2 citing a staph infection. He was replaced by promotional newcomer Saparbek Safarov.
Cummins faced Corey Anderson on November 4, 2017 at UFC 217. However on October 17, Cummins pulled out from the fight due to a resistant staph infection. The fight was rescheduled to UFC Fight Night 128 on April 21, 2018. He lost the fight via unanimous decision.
Cummins announced his retirement from the sport on Dec. 24, 2019.
