Hey all!

I'm looking to buy some brand spanking new mma gloves. Open to any and all recomendations! I knew the Hayabusa Ikusa is very highly thought of and love the look of the new T3 glove. Anyone try the Ikusa or new T3?

Thanks!

Trying to get the best gloves I can possibly buy. Mainly trying to decide between the Hayabusa T3 or Venom Undisputed 2.0 but open to better suggestions.

Opinions?

Hi, Plushy. Please try to keep to one thread per topic, please. I've moved your duplicate question to here.

Thanks!

Considerations on gloves:

1. Looks are for posers and pros with sponsorships. Don't choose a glove based on how cool it looks.
2. Any rules in your specific art or competition that govern which gloves you can or cannot use. Train with the equipment you are required to use in competition.
3. The Ikusa and Undisputed both have thumb guards. T3 has an open thumb, which is similar to what the current UFC-sanctioned gloves are, if I'm not mistaken.
4. Wrist support. You don't want to sacrifice, here.
5. Fit and comfort. Not everyone's hands are the same. When I was striking, I tended towards gloves with wider straps, because I have boney wrists.
6. Ask your sparring partners and coaches what gloves they recommend, and see if they have a pair that you can try for a couple of rounds.
7. OK, now you can worry about how cool they look.

If the T3 is closer to UFC sanctioned gloves we maybe I'll go with those. I know the new design is also supposed to give greater wrist support.

When figuring out what size glove to buy, do you wrap your hands before measuring the circumference? Without wraps I would be a small, but with wraps it would boost me into the range of a medium glove.

Yes, you want gloves that fit with your wraps.

I got a set of combat sports MMA gloves and they are dead sexy. Real leather and just feels well built.

I have ordered the sparring version. I will see how they go.

I've had nothing but good luck with Fairtex gloves.

I suppose it really depends what you're going to use them for.

They're grappling gloves to me, not meant for actually hitting anything. I don't care to have any that allow room for wraps, then again I simply keep mine after fights so its not like it was choice. I only use them to grapple(or to walk down the boardwalk and mack it with bitches after I let them know I "trane UFC.")

This doesn't mean they cant or shouldn't be used for hitting or that someone is a "newb" because they do, but in a perfect world I'll use the following assortment of gloves:

8oz gloves for bagwork and padwork.
16oz gloves for sparring
4oz gloves for grappling

Hypothetically maybe you cant afford (or don't want to afford) buying several different pairs. Depending on how you intend to use them you may prefer some over others.

An old pair of Harbinger gloves I had have a bar on the palm for a tighter fist and have extensions on the knuckles (to protect yours) for pad work and bag work. They also have a wrist strap design that goes around your wrist twice- something I particularly prefer. That's the pro. The con is that the palm isn't open and you have a small bar there as well making grappling a little less sensitive and a little more annoying. I've seen some "MMA Bag gloves" that look roughly the same as the 4oz but with added padding for intentions of pads and bags and whatnot. I have no experience with them so I cant offer an opinion.

Fairtex and Everlast make some really really good gloves period- not just 4oz. The only thing I dislike is that its got a single wrist strap design which means theres not a lot of Velcro holding the wrist strap on. As the gloves age and the velco wears its a small pain in the ass to keep a roll of tape on hand so that you can tape them less they constantly come undone during training. That's why I like the ones that wrap the wrist twice- much more surface area for velco so you don't need to tape them.
