    Do they spray any disinfectant or anything on the mat between fights or do they just let other peoples blood sit there while the next group of fighters go out and fight in it?

    they are blood tested before the fight so they dont have diseases. the blood isnt a big deal.

    I'm more concerned about the half ass job they did cleaning the Kish off the mat. It was clearly still visible in the next fight.

    Motivated BJ Penn used to come out and lick up the blood in between fights , latest Penn probably uses a mop .

    They probably mop it up with some sort of bleach based cleaner.

    I've never even thought about this question! It's good to get a legit answer but I always just assumed all the fighters were so crazy they didn't give a fuck about other dudes blood lol

    Joe Rogan said on his podcast that people would spray paint over the blood, but only on Fox cards.

    I've seen them trying to scrub up what they could with buckets and brushes between fights, but I don't think there's any effort at sanitizing the cage.
