GOOD LIST!! MMA gloves shouldnt really be used to train with as in striking its a easy way to get hurt and put ur self out of training. I do throw them on when im grappling which makes a diffrence from no gloves to even the mma gloves.

I've been using MMA gloves for striking and it hasn't hurt my fists yet. Probably got used to it though, after doing it for a long time. Buying another set of gloves just for striking just didn't seem logical to me.

Also,

Headgear
The most important of your equipment. Best tip I can give is spend a little extra on your headgear. Try Winning FG-5000 or FG-2900. Cleto Reyes Classic and Face Protectors work amazingly also. 100% worth the price to protect that noggin.

Gloves

Sparring: You want to protect your partner in training so, be nice and buy 16 oz and above with soft, quality padding. No Everlast junk.

Bag/Pads: Wrist protection is key: Wrap your hands very well and use pads with great reviewed wrist protection. Laces are most often the most protective option for your wrist.
