Your description is superficial.What kind of topology,agent,routing u are considering ?
Any way, If all nodes are in the sensing range, then there should be one and only one transmission in the network at a time. The packet which will grab the channel first, will be transmitted first. Next TX initiation will start as soon as the NAV timer expires and CS becomes clear. Big packet and small packet is not the main issue.

Pls see the above answer. By the way ,you can go through the basic principles of 802.11 DCF literature.
