    not sure about fairtex i have Topking they are about same size..
    so if you have big fingers and you use cloves over size 8(eu) you should thing about L size.. offcourse usually you can retern them if they dont fit.. to make sure you can order both sizes and keep pair that fits best..

    Im actually afraid the mediums are going to be to big. They don't have size small.

    Gorilla Fightgear uses
    Code:
    Size  	Knuckle Size
    S 	7" - 7.5"
    M 	7.5" - 8"
    L 	8" - 8.5"
    XL 	8.5" and UP
    for their MMA gloves, and I used that chart to select the size of my Rival bag gloves.

    Basically, take a measuring tape (I used a cloth/sewing tape) and measure the circumference of your knuckles with your hand open.

    I would expect this would work for most MMA gloves.

    Trying to find an MMA gloves hand size chart is about as difficult as trying to determine the hand pocket size of Boxing or MT gloves in a definitve manner. Even though they will all vary by manufacturer, Ouano's website is the only one that I have found that has one that may put you in the ballpark. The best thing to do is place you hand palm side down on a flat surface, and measure the circumference around the striking surface of the knuckles, and then call Fairtex and ask. They should be able to help you out. You can find their number at Fairtex.com. I hope this helps.

    Thanks, I emailed them, so ill have to see what they say. Im pretty disappointed they dont make the gloves in size small, or I would have just ordered them without hesitation.

    Those are shooto style gloves, the more open styled MMA gloves.

    I have a medium hand and purchase a large, that way my wraps fit.

    the small size is for women..
    medium is for a small handed man
    large for normal size male hands or with bulky finger ones
    and xl for huge handed ones

    Thats actually a really good point, I didnt even think about that. I could just use my 180 in wraps if they are still loose. Thank man.

    That's not necessarily true. I have normal man hands-I'm 5'9- and mediums are just right.

    Go large if you're normal.

    And I don't wear wraps so a medium fits a normal hand for a 5 foot 8 inch guy
