Century MMA Gloves - 4oz.

I've been trying to find a good review of these gloves but all I have been able to come up with are a few mixed opinions which were vague to say the least. I was hoping someone on here had a pair or tried out a pair and had a good idea of the quality and durability of these gloves it would be a nice piece of information...then maybe I could get some sleep at night

Here is a pic...

lol i ordered these last year but when i got them it turned out they were the ones with the bar in the middle...needless to say i still use them and find them decent cept for the fact that the bar gets in the way when grappling...other than that they've lasted for over a year without anything major happening to them so these ones must be alright...they're the exact same as mine cept for the full palm and the bar that's my two cents lol

Yes I don't really mind them I only used them for a couple hours kickboxing the other day and I came home with a bruised middle knuckle. Thats my only concern thus far although I wasn't wearing wraps but its only on my right hand my left is fine.

I have the same ones exactly with the bar. I love them for bag work, they are awesome for that but they are not great for grappling.

I have the tri-wrap ones, which are full gloves. I imagine mine are more sturdy but less good for grappling. I find with gloves like the ones you pictured I have to have my hands wrapped or they get cut up by the funny fingers. At least I found that with everlast ones.

I have these ones too, I use them for my workout tapes, focus mitts and the heavy bag. That fistfiller is a lifesaver. It works great for doing push-ups on your knuckles.

I would recemmend a separate pair for grappling though. You would have to use a pair without the fistfiller for competitions though.
