Does anybody have any experience using these two types of gloves? Some friends and I are getting together to spar on a regular basis. We try to cover all of the ranges: long range, boxing/kickboxing range, clinch, and ground fighting. We are trying to decide on whether to buy the UFC/Pride style gloves (lighter, less padding, sharp edges creates more chance of cutting the other guy[remember Vitor Belfort cutting Randy Coutoure's eye?, more finger mobility) or Bruce Lee's grappling gloves from Enter the Dragon(more padding, but consequently less finger movement). Both have their pros and cons.
Most in our group are in their thirties so were not young gung-ho macho types trying to prove how tough we are. Our main goal is to learn from each other by sparring, under mutually-resistant conditions without doing unneccesary harm. We all have to get up and go to work the next day and have families to take care of.
