Eye injuries due to inadvertent pokes are a regular threat in MMA, and broken hands abound. In an attempt to address those problems, Bellator and parter Everlast have developed a new glove.
Via press release.
Everlast Worldwide Inc. and Bellator MMA, have collaborated to produce the next-generation of MMA fight glove.
Over the last year Everlast product designers have worked closely with Bellator's team and its athletes to create the PowerLock MMA Fight glove. The new glove promotes proper hand form and technique, which can help to reduce the risk of face, hand and wrist injuries. The PowerLock displays a number of improvements over earlier generations of MMA gloves; these changes include a curved striking surface that aides proper hand form, redesigned foam to maximize hand protection on the impact zone and additional padding that shields the first and fifth metacarpals, two commonly injured bones of the hand.
The new glove will debut when Bellator's 10th season kicks-off this Friday, February 28th, 2014.
