    Curved loves. Longer thicker gloves.

    All these designs will hurt BJJ guys even more.

    How are they supposed to handfight and go for submissions?

    The only thing that needs to change is to stop all that bullshit shoving your open hands in peoples face.

    Clawing or raking your open hand in an opponents face needs to disciplined right away.

    Starting with Jon Jones.

    To be fair outside of slipping your hand in for like a rear naked choked how often is having the ability to completely flatten your hand out really needed? The pride gloves still more than allow for clamping down on wrist control, or for grabbing an ankle. The only gripe I had with pride gloves, which i'd really want them to fix is they had a problem with their fingers slipping out of the finger holes at times which seemed like a design flaw. There woould be times when the ref woulld have to make sure the gloves was back over their finger before restarting. So they certainly weren't without their own issues.
