You are correct on every aspect.
Also looking at the front of a hand that can not completey close vs. the back is also a bit misleading.
They both wear the same size gloves.
As far as aesthetics is concerned, Brock is MUCH larger (body structure), but Carwin is MUCH faster and more explosive when standing. Something Mir DID NOT account for in his training.
He put on the weight so he didnt get pushed around easy, but he forgot that Carwin didnt need to take him down.
Brock is certainly in for a tough fight.
