I see a red floor and I want it painted black blue...

Ultimate Fighting Cosmetics (UFC) had a little brushing up to do before the UFC on FOX main event title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos last Saturday night (Nov. 12) in Anaheim, California.

Literally.

Esther Lin of MMA Fighting captured the above shot, featuring members of the production crew painting over the blood stains leftover from the event's preliminary action.

It is, after all, the first-ever collaboration between FOX and the UFC and it might not bode well for future broadcasts if curious eyes tune into see a blood-soaked canvas.

Baby steps.

Not that UFC on FOX didn't have its share of violence anyway, thanks to a cranium-cracker from Junior dos Santos, who stripped Velasquez of the 265-pound crown via first round knockout.

If you're trying to find out where the blood came from, look no further than our UFC on FOX preliminary results and live blog from the Honda Center right here.
