Patrick Durkin Cummins[4] (born November 16, 1980) is an American mixed martial artist currently competing in the Light heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2010, he has formerly competed for Strikeforce.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Cummins played many sports, including wrestling and football, while at Warwick High School (Pennsylvania).[5] 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[6] and 2004 runner-up[3] as well as a two-time US National Team Member.[6] 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.[7]

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.[8]

Cummins fought Tasi Edwards at ProElite 3 on January 21, 2012. He won the fight via arm-triangle.[9]

Cummins then fought Ricky Pulu at Xplode Fight Series: Revancha on March 16, 2013. He won via first round TKO.[10]

In what would be his last fight before signing with UFC, Cummins faced Willie Smalls at SCL: Chaos in the Cage on May 18, 2013. Cummins won via guillotine choke submission.[11]

In February 2014, Cummins stepped up on short notice to replace the injured Rashad Evans against Daniel Cormier on February 22, 2014, at UFC 170.[12] He lost the fight by first round TKO.[13]

For his second fight with the promotion, Cummins was scheduled to fight Francimar Barroso on June 7, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 42.[14] However, Barroso was forced out of the bout due to an injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Roger Narvaez.[15] Cummins won the fight via second round TKO.[16]

Cummins faced Kyle Kingsbury on July 26, 2014 at UFC on Fox 12.[17] He won the fight via dominant unanimous decision.

Cummins faced Antônio Carlos Júnior on December 20, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 58.[18] He won the one-sided fight by unanimous decision.[19]

Cummins was expected to face Gian Villante on December 9, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 102.[28] However, Cummins pulled out of the fight on December 2 citing a staph infection.[29] He was replaced by promotional newcomer Saparbek Safarov.[30]

Cummins faced Jan Błachowicz on April 8, 2017 at UFC 210.[31] He won the bout by majority decision.[32]

A rescheduled bout with Gian Villante eventually took place on July 22, 2017 at UFC on Fox 25.[33] Cummins won the back-and-forth fight via split decision.[34]

Cummins faced Corey Anderson on November 4, 2017 at UFC 217.[35] However on October 17, Cummins pulled out from the fight due to a resistant staph infection.[36] The fight was rescheduled to UFC Fight Night 128 on April 21, 2018.[37] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.[38]
