Bloody roar!

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez in on the fast track to getting his 265-pound title back -- and doesn't mind bleeding a few people who choose to get in the way.

Such was the case in last Saturday night's (May 26, 2012) UFC 146 pay-per-view (PP) event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Velasquez, who was paired off with Antonio Silva when Frank Mir got promoted to headliner, busted "Bigfoot" open with a short elbow that not only covered the Octagon in blood, but damn-near drowned the Brazilian in his own hematoma en route to a first round technical knockout (TKO) finish.

Velasquez tells Ariel Helwani it didn't bother him a bit.

"It was slippery, ya know? Blood doesn't bother me at all. The smell, whatever, it doesn't bother me. It was just a little slippery. I was kinda worried about that one spot in the Octagon where there was a lot of (blood), where [the referee] put us back down. I was just worried about that, ya know? Maybe getting my foot on there and me slipping, having him roll me or something."

Like a boss.

Hear more from Velasquez, who is expected to rematch Junior dos Santos for "Cigano's" division title later this year, after the jump.
