Probably best headgear for MMA style sparring,
Cliff Kleen Face Guard with Chin Strap assembly Model # FG3. Designed to be used in conjunction with wrestling style ear/hear guard.
Perfectly legal for use in amateur wrestling competitions if the wreslter has a documented history of a facial injury.
NOT designed for full contact intentional strikes to the face, but will take the edge off and still let you grapple.

On the subject of best headgear for mma sparring...
I tried on this headgear at Bushido MA supply near where I live and I liked it. Its the first headgear on this page: http://www.bushidomartialarts.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=13&cat=Sparring+Gea r
I felt that the mobility at the neck was good and it has great ear/face/head protection. If you are like me and don't intend to compete professionally in mma but enjoy sparring, this is probably worth looking into. I haven't bought mine yet (just dropped $60 on some wrestling shoes I needed), but will soon because I don't overly enjoy getting beaned on the nose by some of my sparring partners that have a real hard straight jab! :-D
