Yes this is why they are called "sparring gloves".

In your original post you said MMA fighters fight in 4oz gloves and boxers in 20oz. So you believe that MMA fighters wear 4oz gloves in stand up sparring?

Its dangerous but at the same time the gloves in MMA are only 4 ounces vs. what 16 ounce gloves in Boxing.......

Deaths dont really measure how difficult a sport is, I believe the trainning and prep does along with whats required in competition.....
This is the post you are referring to.......Notice the highlighted portion, thats to insinuate that Im not certain....

This is you misinterpreting my posts and no to answer your question I dont believe they wear 4 oz gloves while sparring, although I've seen it, I was never referring to simply sparring........Never claimed to be an expert on gloves as that really has no bearing on which sport is harder to train for.......


Thread back on track.....MMA I would say is harder to train for.....some people might say that since there is boxing in MMA in essance your trainning both so MMA would be harder......

Im not applying that logic, I just simply think it comes down to more than one variable.......who it is thats trainning, what routine they go through, etc......
