    There is only 2 pairs of gloves for the entire event. They gotta get them off fast to rush them backstage to give to the next 2 fighters.

    Must be some wacky Pennsylvania athletic commission rule.

    Someone with FightPass should see if they did the same thing after Kongo/Barry.

    They'll be for sale on the UFC's website afterwards.

    Winter's over soon and snow in Nevada isn't cheap.

    They need to smell it to see if they test positive. New breed of tests.

    I was wondering that as well, I didn't recall them doing that in Philly... Figured it was for a charity auction thing or an athletic commission thing.

    They need to bag those things up quick so Reebok can sell them online
