    Did the athletic commission pressure them to enforce gloves?

    I don't know why. Bare knuckle boxing is doing well in the UK

    Nope.

    Adding bare knuckle fights won't improve, actually it might hurt the UFC.

    It's not ultimate fighting with gloves and stand-up for each new round. It's a sport now

    But adding fights like that won't add anything to the current ufc model. And bare knuckle isn't a sport, it's a variation of boxing.

    It was never only bare knuckle, fighters could have worn any type of glove they wanted to in the early days.
