Sorry, I know this has beaten to death but I been doing some MMA training and my sparring partner and I purchased some MMA gloves that were not too expensive but the padding was thin to moderate (less than an inch) and they had a break (seam) right above the knuckle (kind of dangerous). Now I want to buy some new ones. Mostly we've been going semi-contact and have been somewhat gun shy since these gloves are a little on the unsafe side. So, I'm looking at most other regularly padded MMA gloves and they look a little more padded than mine (at least when I see them online), such as Ouano's UFC gloves, Sherdog's gloves, etc. Does anyone really train with the more competition grade MMA gloves, because they're a lot cheaper than some of the training gloves out there? I don't neccesarily mean full contact. I don't know, I guess I'm asking would it be safe to buy competition grade gloves (since they're cheaper, like the Truth or Sherdog MMA gloves) to train with? Also, if I do break down and end up just buying MMA gloves for training, which are the least bulkiest? Because I look at some of the heavier training gloves and wonder if I could sink an RNC with those. Thanks guys.
