I've been looking at buying headgear so I can spar with a friend, and we want to be able to both stand up and grapple with the same set of headgear. Is this what most of you do? I just want something that will protect the face and head when striking, but I'd also like some ear protection while on the ground. Traditionally, grappling tends to make my ears very sore, and while I have no cauliflower ear, I want to take steps to avoid it from the outset. Is there anything out there that can ably do both jobs? I see some headgear marketed as MMA specific, and some as boxing specific, but I'm hard pressed to tell the difference, even with much of the highly recommended stuff on these forums. Maybe all quality headgears provide ample ear protection as well? I'm not sure. I have very little experience with it. Can anyone offer some advice?
