MMA Sparring Gloves
Mixed Martial Arts gloves differ greatly from boxing gloves. The most noticeable difference is that MMA gloves are open fingered.
This feature leaves the fingers available for grappling manoeuvres.
Not only are MMA Gloves different in their appearance, but they also offer varying amounts of protection. Because they are open fingered, they don’t have the same amount of padding. In fact, MMA gloves tend to be much sleeker than their boxing equivalents.
MMA gloves were first introduced for two reasons. One was to give the hands of the fighters some protection and the other was to reduce stoppages in matches due to facial lacerations.
The padding on the back of the glove protects the fighter’s hands from injury while the open palm still allows for some flexibility compared to boxing gloves.
While the majority of professional fights require participants to wear the 4 ounce gloves, amateurs may wear the heavier 6 ounce gloves, for a bit of extra protection.
