Here's the gear I already have or I have ordered and is en route to my house:

Hostility fight shorts (pinstripe = pimpin).
Hayabusa Pro MMA gloves
Shock Doctor Compression Shorts w/ cup
Mouth Guard (boil & bite style from Wal-Mart, very temporary)

Now I'm going to order a good rashguard or two, should I get gloves just for bag work or will the Hayabusa gloves work for basically everything? Also is there anything else anyone can suggest to get? i take a lot of water and some protein bars for post training/workout.

get boxing gloves 16oz for bag work, you don't want to use MMA gloves on a heavy bag especially if the bag is hard as a rock. Plus most places i've been to use training MMA gloves when they spar not pro style gloves (training gloves have more padding, but not much.

I highly recommend the hayabusa 16oz sparing gloves. the fit and finish of these gloves are second to none. i use them 5 nights a week during different training sessions for both sparing and bag work (both speed drill and heavy bag work). When sparing my partners at first complained that they were a little hard, but after a week solid bag work they found they softened up. No problems with bag work what so ever!

if you use the 16oz style boxing gloves on your bag you might end up hurting your hand in a real fight. i say train with the gloves you are going to fight with. no one really knows how hard a guys head is actually going to be until you hit it. this way it toughens up your hands and wrists. if your hands hurt afterward, good, get used to it for your fights

WHAT??? That is some of the WORST advice I've ever seen, If you are hurting your hands hitting a bag, you're not hitting the bag right....

if anything using MMA style fight gloves on a heavy bag you are more likely going to kill your wrists then hurting your hand in a fight, and you usually don't need to have your own fight gloves MOST promotions will supply you with a pair.

Fact dude with 16 oz if you hurt yourself you must be going full retard cause most folk with any form or skill can go ape shizz on a bag and not hurt themselves ( personal opinion bags are usually harder than a dudes melon IMO)
