Maybe it wasn’t a good idea for former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray to attend UFC 185 in Dallas on Saturday night. Fans obviously still have a bad taste in their mouths now that the former focal point of the Cowboys’ offense—coming off an impressive 1,845-yard, 13-touchdown campaign—will be donning an Eagles uniform from here on out.
Not only did Murray attend UFC 185, but he also did so with the company of former Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin. Maybe that’s why he was booed and also harassed by “Eagles suck!” chants.

Murray drew plenty of boos during introductions. At one point, he was featured on the Jumbotron as he attempted to ignore the crowd noise.
The 2015 NFL Schedule is set to be released later in the spring. It’s clear that Cowboys fans will immediately circle the date on which they’ll square off against Murray and their division rival.
UFC 185 was just a preview of what Murray will face when he returns to JerryWorld wearing enemy colors later in the year.
