Looking for some MMA Gloves

Ive been searching for a nice set of bag MMA gloves like these Century ones I posted below or some Ouano Light/Med bag gloves. I hear these are EXCELLENT for bag and grappling training. If anyone else has had any experience with these or ones better please let me know. Thank you!

I have to say I like the wrist wrap on those gloves. The century ones looks to me like they would "unvelcro" if you try to snatch your arm out of an attempted armbar.

The gloves I use have a pull down cover over top of the velcro wrap. So its a little hard to put the glove on, but it makes sure that it wont come loose during any fight.

I bought a pair of 10 oz openhanded fairtex gloves and they sucked, They fit very badly and hurt your hands when you punch. The quality isnt great either

To size the gloves correctly, I believe you measure the width of your hand across the knuckles. The sizes go:

S/M = 3 3/8" knuckle width or smaller

M/L = 3 3/8" - 3 3/4" knuckle width

L/XL = 3 3/4" or bigger knuckle width

Knuckle width is the measurement across palm of hand.

Standard grappling/MMA gloves should be 4 oz. Too much bigger, and you're more looking at JKD or MT Clinch Gloves. Whatever you're looking at, I would definitely suggest that you make sure to get an open-palm style. There are a lot of wrist-wrap gloves that have the center piece to offer padding for striking, but completely take away from being able to grapple effectively.

I hope that helps.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
