Would have been nice to see him start mma sooner.

Not to mention he himself is a big fella.. He wouldn't be really outsized by Jones

I don't think you understand what sour grapes means. It has to do with rationalization, nothing to do with being a sore loser.

Big difference comes what Cummins did after college. Cummins was a pretty damn good ranked heavyweight, and senior USA is the big boys compared to NCAA just like the NFL. Too much of an experience edge here.
Weak as opposed to when?
