ufc gloves and pride gloves are just like all top grappling gloves (4oz).
Just picked up a fair of fairtex gloves, no loop in the thumb so you have freedom of the thumb, you can pick any of these sort of gloves up for around £30.
grapplers mag rated the fairtex ones the best gloves to use for grappling and mma, i took a look at the ufc ones and there exactly the same no thumb. the only thing that changes between all these brands of gloves is the logo on the top, apart from that there all at the same level there gloves not a damn car.
on another note it doesnt take tons of money to make a pair of good gloves!
