Is it hygienic for blooded up MMA?

When you have scenario's of fightets cut and blooded up, is it hygienically safe? Im not an expert but would the mixture of blood get into each fighters blood stream via cut openings, eyes, etc?

Yes it is. Unless one guy has an infection that spreads through blood and other bodily fluids it's totally safe. Your immune system can handle these things.

The question should be stated differently but the short answer is no, blood pathogens and just about anything can be transferred from fighter to fighter and yes if a fighter has something and bleeds on you there is a chance you will get what they have.

How big of a chance depends on the circumstances and what it is.

The human body is constructed in the way that if there is an injury the blood flows out of the body to prevent any foreign substance to enter the blood circuit, however that isn't always successful, in particular when there where pathogenic substances directly on the object that caused the injury. So yes there is always the danger of disease transmission. That's why fighters have to test on HIV and Hepatitis C regularly. It doesn't even have to be any serious disease, any blood and sweat sweat from the opponent entering the injury can cause nasty inflammations.
