According to the
Centre Daily Times, former Penn State University wrestling
Cummins and Eric
Bradley are now wanted in Pennsylvania for allegedly failing to
appear Tuesday morning at a sentencing hearing for a 2008 burglary
The Centre Daily Times is reporting that the pair allegedly failed
to attend their sentencing, which was scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday
morning in Courtroom 2 of the Centre County Courthouse in
The wrestlers-turned-MMA fighters were originally arrested in May
2008 for allegedly burglarizing seven PSU fraternities dating back
to December of 2007. The pair are reportedly accused of stealing
laptops, video games, iPods and cash, among other items.
The wrestlers reportedly cooperated with the prosecution, pleading
guilty to the burglary charges while striking a verbal agreement
that they would receive probation for cooperating. The case's
prosecutor changed, however, and the verbal plea bargain was
reportedly not upheld. The two were scheduled to be sentenced on
Jan. 11, but that date was continued to Feb. 15.
Cummins recently made his professional MMA debut in December, where
the light heavyweight easily dispatched Terrell
Brown on the undercard of Strikeforce “Henderson vs. Babalu 2.”
A participant in the Sherdog Fighter Exchange
experiment, Cummins traveled to Brazil with mentor Jason "Mayhem"
Miller last year. Cummins was a national runner-up as a
heavyweight at the NCAA championships in 2004.
Bradley is an EliteXC veteran who last competed in October. An
All-American at 184 pounds as a Nittany Lion, Bradley holds half of
his career MMA wins by knockout or submission.
Sherdog.com attempted to contact Cummins, but he could not be
reached for comment.
