    Just joined an MMA gym and need some advice on gloves.

    We will be doing bag work and focus mits. Which oz glove to get that I could use for both?

    get some bag/training gloves, 16oz. i.e. boxing gloves.

    depending on how much you want to hurt your training partners you may want to avoid MMA gloves... (the 4oz ones) for a while.

    I train with 10oz gloves for everything, but most people use 14 or 16 oz

    You might try Fairtex's Heavy Hitter Gloves. They have a great fit and feel and there's something about Fairtex gloves that makes you feel the transfer of power. The only downer is that they can be quite a bit more expensive (retail $109.99)

    Go with 16s man they're kind of the universal glove for everything...you'll most likely get the most use out of those so spend a little on them if you have it ;) Twins or Windy are always a safe bet my .02

    Everyones hit the ball here. Don't get anything too small if your going to be sparring, because that hurts on the other end of a punch.

    I would use 16 oz gloves unless you are a big guy (over 210lbs) then I would use 18 oz
