The Difference Between MMA And Hybrid Gloves

The main difference between MMA and Hybrid gloves is the padding they provide. MMA gloves only have 4oz’s of padding and hybrid gloves normally have 7oz’s. Certain gloves might come with more and you can find gloves available with between 8 – 10oz online.

Black 4oz MMA Gloves

MMA gloves are mainly used in fights as opposed to mixed martial arts training because you will be hitting a lot harder and there is less padding to protect your training partner. Hybrid gloves are a mix between MMA gloves and boxing gloves. They still have the ends cut off so your fingers are free to grip but they provide almost double the amount of padding as 4oz gloves. They are mainly used for training as they offer more protection.
