    Why don't they try and make boxing and kickboxing more exciting by using the small ufc gloves ?

    I bet there will be more knockouts. Its harder to defend, easier to hit someone with it.
    Better precision.

    And many people don't like the ground part in mma which could draw in alot of fans of standup.

    Open gloves are shitty for striking because of eye pokes. They should use normal boxing loves in 4oz if anything.

    But if you wanna watch something like that just watch old boxing fights 6oz gloves were basically the same thing

    as stated earlier John Wayne Parr's promotion in Australia CMT does full Thai rules in a cage with MMA gloves. I also believe there is at least 1 Thai show that has just started using them, I cant remember its name though

    More cuts and less knockouts, MMA gloves do more damage to the outside of the head, boxinggloves have more impact on the brain

    you could just use smaller boxing gloves, no need to have open fingers. that would just make eye pokes more common.

    It looks sloppy as hell. And you don't need it to produce more knockouts. There is enough knockouts

    I hate these new MMA fans that think they're all the same sport.

    Thai Fight has been doing it for the last few years Yodsanklai just had a fight this past weekend in China at a MAS 1 event where they used open fingered gloves.

    out of all the Thai Fights events I've watch with open fingered gloves I haven't seen a single eye poke. Probably due to them not being little girly men pawing out with an open hand trying to find their range.
