Perfect MMA Gloves for Your Fighting Needs

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a high-contact combat sport that demands the right gear for both performance and safety. One of the most important pieces of equipment for MMA fighters is the gloves. These gloves protect hands and wrists during training and competition, providing the fighter with the safety and performance they need to succeed.

Types of MMA Gloves

  • Sparring Gloves: Designed specifically for training sessions, sparring gloves come with extra padding for added protection. The DBX Bushido MMA Gloves Synthetic Leather Red and DBX Bushido MMA Gloves Undefeated are examples of sparring gloves with a thicker layer of padding to protect the knuckles during training.
  • Fight/Small Gloves: Mainly used in professional MMA fights, fight or small gloves like the Manto MMA Gloves Impact are characterized by their low weight and low levels of shock absorption. These gloves, weighing in at 4oz, are the standard for competition and have minimal padding for maximum striking power.
  • Technically Advanced Gloves: More advanced gloves like the DBX Bushido MMA Gloves Black Master are perfect for sparring and provide a more realistic feel for an actual fight. While the added padding offers extra protection, it can make executing ground and submission techniques a bit more difficult.

Materials for MMA Gloves

  • MMA gloves are made from a variety of materials, including leather and synthetic options. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each:
  • Leather: A traditional and premium material, leather is durable and provides good protection with a good grip. Over time, leather gloves will mold to the shape of the hand for a comfortable fit and are breathable. However, leather gloves can be expensive and require proper maintenance, such as conditioning, to keep them in good condition.
  • Synthetic Materials: Synthetic materials, like nylon or vinyl, are becoming more popular due to their affordability and durability. They are easy to clean and maintain and come in a variety of colors and designs.

Finding the Right Size for Your MMA Gloves

  • When choosing MMA gloves, fit and comfort are key. A secure and snug fit will help you perform at your best, while a poor fit can lead to hand injuries or discomfort during training or competition. Look for gloves made from breathable materials that will keep your hands cool and dry.

Do I need boxing wraps under MMA gloves?

  • It is not necessary to use boxing wraps under MMA gloves, but they can provide additional support and protection for the hands.

Why use boxing wraps under MMA gloves?

  • MMA gloves already provide a certain level of protection for the hands, but adding boxing wraps can provide an extra layer of protection. The added compression from the wraps can help support the joints and bones in the hand, reducing the risk of injury during training or competition. Additionally, some fighters also use boxing wraps to provide a better fit or to help keep the gloves securely in place on the hand.

When is it not necessary to use boxing wraps under MMA gloves?

  • It’s important to note that some MMA gloves like DBX Bushido MMA Gloves Master already come with built-in wrist support, so in that case it’s not necessary to use boxing wraps.

Tips for using boxing wraps under MMA gloves

  • Remember, that if you use boxing hand wraps under the MMA gloves, you should always add about 0.5 cm to the size of the hand when choosing the size of the gloves.
