Strangely enough, the first thing I noticed during Saturday night’s UFC on FOX 1 broadcast was that there weren’t any blood stains on the mat when the fight started. Usually by the time the main event rolls around there’s at least a few spots here and there, so I thought to myself, wow they’re really lucky the Octagon doesn’t look the floor of a butcher shop for their network television debut.
Well, turns out it wasn’t luck at all. MMA Fighting’s Esther Lin snapped the above pic of the production crew doing a little touch-up job on the mat with some spray paint before the main event.
Good call, whose ever it was.
