    I have fought in 3 different MMA fights and really didnt know what to bring with me. I brought the basics with me mouthguard, tape and a couple changes of clothing and some water. I have a fight on the 13th and want to get a little more serious with my fighting. What is everything I should bring with me in a gearbag and should have in my gearbag. And if it is anything fighting specific what is a good website to get it at?

    Thanks in advance

    Gauze because lots of times they won't have it to wrap your hands.

    Also some mouthwash to put on your mouthpiece. It keeps you from getting dry mouth.

    I also like Anaffrin nose spray. It opens up your nasal passages and gets rid of any snot or blockages. You can get it at walmart near the allergy medicine. Just two sprays per nostril about 20 min before a fight and you will be surprised at how much better you can breathe.

    Also a bucket and your own vasiline. I also always bring an extra set of gloves in case the event doesn't provide them(gay, but it happens).

    A few towels to wipe blood/sweat off between rounds.

    a pair of flip flops is always nice to have, i keep a pair of cheap walmart ones in my bag because I'm prone to leave them after the event.

    A few different CD's with walk-out music. I hate when I forget mine so I keep a few songs I like on a CD with my name on it. Just one thing you won't have to worry about again.

    Vulgar always keeps his gimp suit with him.

    Ok, should I buy my own gloves? They supply them at the event but I would rather use my own (just a personal thing).

    I would, that way you can practice in them also.

    I love the Combat Sport International ones.

    Which CSI gloves do you have?

    I noticed the stitching on my hybrids came apart after the first day and then the stitching between each finger came apart too...so whenever I punch a bag or mitts the dust from the foam inside the gloves comes out. :ugh:

    I use the bigger ones for training with guys when they have a fight comming up and don't need to get cut or anything.

    woa, im really liking the second pair of gloves. how do those gloves fit? are they comfortable? cuz i noticed you put your fingers through loops. didnt know if it would feel any different from basic training gloves.

    I love them as far as working with a partner goes, you can put some serious power on the punches with out cutting them or giving them a concussion. But they are kinda hard to grapple in because of the extra size. They are a good buy if you help train guys for fights as well as train for your own. I almost prefer to train in my hybrids though.

    You mean Afrin spray? I'm thinking about using that stuff for hockey.
