UFC Official MMA Glove
UFC Official MMA Fight Glove
Probably the most widely known symbol of MMA along with the Octagon is the UFC MMA gloves. So, I was excited when I found out I was going to review these gloves and needless to say I had pretty high expectations since after all they were the official UFC MMA gloves.
When I received these at my front door I immediately opened up the package and they meet my expectations of the typical quality of UFC MMA Gear, although they were tight when I put them on (see Con’s below).
Pro’s of the UFC MMA Gloves
They look cool and would be good for display but I am not convinced these are the best gloves for MMA training. I think some better MMA training gloves are the Wristwrap Heavy Bag Gloves By Title MMA or the Multi-Purpose MMA Glove by Combat Sports, but that is just my opinion.
Cons of the UFC MMA Gloves
Size - At first when I put these on they feel like pretty soft leather but they fit very tight which can be good tif they stretch to fit. My hand measurements are 6.5 inches in length and about 4.5 inches in width. With this size of hand I decided to get a Large size. The question is will these things stretch to fit? Although, the good thing about it is that after about a week of wearing them these fit like a glove (sorry for the pun).
Quality - The one thing that I was surprised at was the quality of the seams is not very well done. I believe that for the money there are other higher quality MMA gloves on the market especially for the price of the UFC fight gloves. I am guessing the gloves that we get to buy are not the same one the MMA fighters use in the Octagon. After about 3 weeks of intense training these gloves looked pretty ratty and shreddd, so my advise is to stay away from these.
Price - These gloves are on the higher end of the scale when it comes to MMA training gloves, but on the lower end when it comes to quality.
