Whether you’re well acquainted with boxing and mixed martial arts or you’re just considering taking up the sport, you’ll have noticed that not all gloves are alike. There are more variation and style of gloves each with its own purpose whether it’s a set of thick foam boxing gloves to pound a heavy punching bag or fingerless grappling gloves for a round in the octagon.
For an aspiring MMA fighter, grappling with an opponent to secure a submission requires the use of one’s fingers. Hence the need for fingerless gloves. These gloves come fully padded on the knuckles to protect your hands from injury and are a great tool for light bag work in the gym.
