    Is it based on weight class or does everyone use the same glove?

    No wonder Glory doesn't score middle kicks. Those gloves protect the entire arm.

    I'm pretty sure they use couch cushions in the shape of boxing gloves.

    I imagine they are really just 8oz at the lower weights it's just the weight. But they are build extra wide and literally like a shield.
    I don't get why they use such gloves. Only for Roosmalen? I can't believe it. To protect the Dutch guys? There aren't that many Thais there.
    To make fighters move less and block and trade more?
    I assume the gloves are mostly that way to block kicks more easily
