Ok, so i just bought some windy brand pride gloves from title's warehouse shop, no idea if you can get them anywhere else as they are very, very discontinued (and very discounted, 10 bucks!) the main difference is that they are lace up and velcro and have a neoprene (maybe, it's stretchy like knee pad material) sleeve that fits around the thumb. UFC i imagine uses normal MMA gloves that are just velcro and have a little elastic loop, or nothing at all for the thumb. I have also heard pride gloves referred to as vale tudo gloves, but i'm not sure on that one.

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 Ł30.

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!

This thread makes me laugh, I read the first page and it is so old there are people commenting about how much more money Pride made compared to the UFC and how the UFC couldnt afford to buy as good o gloves, seems funny knowing what we know now.

@Xitup:
Those are not the ufc gloves they're using now.

This is insane, am I the only one who can see that the UFC-gloves have more padding now??

I think the lbs-measuring is a bad way of measuring the sizes of gloves(mma-gloves thatis). 4oz in weight may be right, but even a fool can se that the dream/WVR-gloves have less padding...

The US MMA is taking a very bad direction in my opinion, the rules, early stoppages, favouring cowards(..and wrestlers) who likes to turtle up and other positions just showing back of the head, and last but not least - the UFC trying to rule the sport via monopoly and with ridiculous methods(recently banning afflictions shirts..).

I really DO have good hopes for the MMA in US and my hopes go to the new affliction promotion and allowing knees to downed oppents. War Affliction(and other promotions against UFC), I use to love UFC as an org, even more than pride but you're a retard if you don't see what they're doing is enormously bad for the sport...

The pride gloves look way nicer because they are blue and have rope. They look the best with pink tape on them too.

If we ranked the dumbest threads on MMA Forums this would be at the top of the list.

Just to add another unnecessary uninformed voice over a topic that is both a dead horse, and really random, my opinion is (blahblah blah blah blah)

The glove rating/measurement is not based on the weight of the glove itself, or the thickness of the padding. It refers to the amount of insulation of blunt force the padding provides. If a denser foam is used then the pad will be thinner, if the foam is less dense then the pad will be thicker. The visible thickness of the glove means absolutely nothing in terms of the protection it affords.

That said, the UFC uses 4 oz gloves just like every other organization in MMA, no matter what you think you see.
