    There are plenty of fights where the fighter that refused to touch gloves ended up losing, but what fights have there been where the fighter that refused to touch gloves ended up winning? Two that I know of are Silva/Hendo and Lesnar/Mir, but are there any more?

    Not touching gloves almost ensures you will lose.

    Recently in Rizin, an unknown prospect named Killer Gustavo, Wanderlei protege, fought Japan's top LW Yachi (at least top three, I'd say number one) and refused to touch gloves. Then he went out and completely decimated Yachi, looked like a Prime Wand/Shogun hybrid. Dude was a FW fighter fighting up a weight class on short notice.

    It was awesome.

    There should not be a touch of gloves, and def not multiple touches for each round or during the fight. Also no hugging during a fight. And afterwards if one is stansing they should not check on fighter or huddle near them. There is already a mutual understanding of fighter respect, this unnecessary show of affection is just glee. And no kissing, gay jesus...ffs.

    TJ lost with cruz after refusing to touch gloves also cody got beat twice from tj after refusing to touch gloves . Silly Dilly learned his lesson .
    Also going into the topic Brock vs Mir 2 is a good example of a fighter winning after refusing to touch gloves .

    Did Ronda ever touch gloves with any of her opponents. I despise WMMA, but IIRC she shit all over Miesha. I can easily be wrong when it comes to WMMA, so take it with a grain of salt.

    It’s such a weird thing with the glove touch. Some dudes don’t do it even when ref asks them too (which always gives Rogan a boner); some do it for the ref but not after the bell; some do it twice (for the ref and after the bell); some high-five and fist-bump the whole time (Hall-Howard); some fake the glove touch to get in a cheap shot.

    It’s really taken on a life of its own, and is as unnecessary as the stupid goal/touchdown celebrations. As long as the cameras are on, dudes/gals will keep acting out, which is understandable; for me, it takes away from the objective at hand, which is the sport itself.

    Touching gloves is time-honered. There should be a respect for the historic traditions. But, it is a case by case deal. I say touch-em-up.

    I hate the glove touch during (not before!) the fight anyway. I would dearly love to see one fighter proffer the high five style hand touch at the start of the round, and the opponent being 100% ready to deliver a shot to break that hand right off the getgo in a fight.

    Touching em up during the referees instructions to the fighters before the fight starts is fine.

    You have to be an arseole if you hold ANYTHING that an opponent does DURING a fight to a fighter that wants to hold hands with their Octagon partner. FFS, if the referee did his job correctly, than a fighter should be intelligent enough to comprehend the warning DE-Fing-fend yourself at ALL TIMES!!!!! If you are too stupid to heed that warning, and get F-d up bad, I cheer!

    Touching the gloves in the middle of a round is so infuriating to me. It feels disrespectful to the audience, the promotion and all fighters throughout history. Fighting is an extremely dangerous sport that should be treated with respect. It’s not golf.. you don’t high Five each put.

    Also, never understood why fighters touch gloves during the referee's instructions and again when they're about to fight.
