College football player hoping to represent UFC on NFL draft day

by Matthew Saccaro | source:

When one thinks of DeMarco Murray there are several things that come to mind: the 2011 NFL Draft, the various records he has set at the University of Oklahoma and his possible future as one of the all-time great running backs in the NFL.

These are all valid thoughts, but there is one seemingly unimportant issue involving Murray that may have implications on the greater sports world, and that is his possible appearance on the cover of the newest edition of EA Sports' NCAA Football.

Absurd? Think again.

Murray has promised that if he wins the vote EA Sports is running to determine who should be on the game's cover, he will wear a UFC logo on draft day.

Just read the article.Thought I'd share this."Aside garnering attention from the UFC brand, this (albeit hypothetical) incident would catapult the UFC to the next level of fame and recognition. No longer would MMA (Mixed Martial Arts for you ball-sports fans who haven't been keeping up with the times) be considered a second-rate sport."yeah. this college football player is gonna take MMA and make us mainstream!!! yay!!we don't need to hope and pray that the NFL talks about fans know about MMA. it's one of the few sports more hardcore than football. this is about getting some press by stirring up shit.
