if u noticed the guy that said Pride makes more money thanUFC posted it in september so i cant say he is dumb but i bet he feels dumb now.
Im not too sure about pride, but i thought i remember joe rogan saying that in the UFC u had a choice of 4 oz or 6 oz gloves for the UFC in one of my DVDs? maybe i was just smoking tons of peyote but who knows.
They dont only wear the gloves to prevent hand breaking but if u have ever been punched bare knuckle over the eye it really messes you up with a nasty cut. i know you can still get cut with elbows but if you dont have gloves on the probability is alot higher
