    Ive seen a few brands have these gloves, they are a hybrid between a boxing and an mma glove. I would use them primarily for hard sparring.

    Are they any good?

    Hayabusha has them: Hayabusa Pro Hybrid MMA Glove and I think they used them in the first seasons of the Ultimate fighter.

    Then I found these:

    Combat Sports MMA Safety Sparring Gloves



    Price: $74.99


    What do you think?

    The hybrid's you're talking about are considered "Shooto" style gloves. I'm not a fan of them personally: the finger grips never feel tight enough, the glove itself sits bulky on the hand, and overall lack that secure feeling a standard MMA glove provided.

    I tried them on a heavy bag, a friend said it would be fine.
