    You can spend a day just looking at all their glove variations. They also sell the "official" Ouano gloves.

    edit: are you using them for training or competition?

    Also, what about size? If it gives a choice of regular or large what do I choose......?

    I am roughly 200lbs 6'1'' approximately 8" knuckles.

    I am 6'1" 235 and use XL and they fit somewhat tight. I don't have mammoth hands either. Maybe think about XL but definitely not Regular.

    For actual MMA gloves for a fight/competition. The fairtex's are the best hands down. They are comfy, well made and I believe the foam is precompressed so they hit like a ton of bricks.

    yeah, competition gloves arent the best choice for training, but whatever floats your boat.

    then you might have wanted bag gloves :dunno:

    I never got the whole "hit bags with mma gloves" thing. unnecessary chance of hurting my hand. Bag gloves do me just fine.

    Maybe for focus mitts, but for bag work you want wraps and bag gloves, or boxing gloves.

    They are very rare and hard to come by, but there is a place that has a few pairs in stock right now and is a reputable place to do business with.
