All of them were the blood of Zimmerman, none matched Martin. Why would they present that evidence? Makes no sense, unless they're trying to show that Martin was not on top of Zimmerman when Zimmerman shot as there would clearly be blood from Martin on Zimmerman's shirt.
Zimmerman's statement is that Martin was on top of him, began reaching towards GZ's gun (in his own opinion), so he drew and fired. Police found TMs body laying prone with the hands tucked up under his chest. If TM shot while straddling GM, it would be difficult to understand how there was no measure of TM's blood on GM or that there was no residue from the muzzle blast on TM. (Gunshots at that range can actually cause burns if they're against unprotected skin, but at any rate there should be powder stains on TM's clothing.)
