Reason Why UFC Used A Blank Canvas For UFC Fight Night 41

No sponsors on the mat...
The fight canvas at UFC Fight Night 41 didn't have any sponsors on it. It usually features MMA-specific companies, among others, and only had one UFC logo this time. Dana White offered an explanation on Twitter:
The canvas for the event at the O2 World Berlin in Germany was sent to the second event of the night, The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
It's the first doubleheader in UFC history, but UFC will do it again on June 28 (UFC Fight Night 43 in Auckland and UFC Fight Night 44 in San Antonio), August 23 (UFC Fight Night 48 in Macau and UFC Fight Night 49 in Tulsa) and October 4 (UFC Fight Night events in Halifax and Stockholm).
