Welcome to the Forum! :thumb02:

It could also be that Carwin's hand is a bit swollen after fighting Mir. He swung with that right hand a lot. It does look a bit red and swollen. I know that his hands are bigger, but I don't think they are that much bigger.

His hands are a little bigger but they do wear the same size of gloves so there can't be that much of a difference.

Looks like you are correct now. I remembered that Lesnar started with a 3XL but was having trouble getting his hands into them so moved up to 4XL which is what Carwin was using. But it looks like Carwin had some 5XL gloves made up since then.

carwins hands look allot bigger because they are wrapped and in gloves plus brocks hand is a tad higher, i tried iagining their hands both with out gloves and also faced the same way and i think they are similar size.

for example look at your own hand in a fist, look at the finger side then look at the other side, the finger size looks allot bigger, now add tape and gloves plus the added swollen tissue from just being in a fight

Theyve said from beginning that Carwins had even bigger hands than lesnar. that being said even ignoring the gloves and only looking at the skin in this picture Lesnars hand looks like it could fit inside of Carwins lol.

Good for Carwin, maybe those slightly bigger hands will help him a bit when he is covering his face with them against Brock's G&P. :D

Doesn't look good for Brock. By all accounts he only wins fights because of his sheer size (not his athleticim or been wrestling since the age of 5) and now he is fighting a guy who is of equal size and *gasp* has bigger hands.

If I'm not mistaken, Brock wears regular 4XL gloves, Carwin has to cut them on the sides in order to wear them normally.

Carwin trains with 5xl but wears 4xl on fight night, he cuts them a bit they can fit more easily. I think the size of Carwins hands are a bit smaller then that what you see there in comparison. He is wearing gloves and his hands are taped up really good, which might make them swell up even a tiny bit.

I'm just suprised the UFC hasnt tried to claim Carwin has 12XL gloves or something equally ridiculous - remember, he is 6 foot 5....right?

Either way, both these guys have huge boulders for hands. If one connects even quite well with the other ones chin, he goes down. End of story.
