    And didnt Tank use Harbingers?That was his choice though I think?

    And gloves became mandatory around UFC 14 or so when they started to clean up the rules and move away from No Holds Barred and towards the MMA of today.

    I feel like Boxergenic made the very originals but I could be mistaken.

    Century makes the new ones. To me they look too awkward and bulky.

    Remember in UFC 3 when Felix Mitchell wore red gloves to the ring but took them off before he fought? What kind of gloves were those?
