    However, now two months, nine events, and countless camps into the use of the glove, Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney says the results have been phenomenal.

    “The hand injuries have gone down exponentially, and broken hands have gone down exponentially,” Rebney said after Bellator 118 as transcribed by MMAJunkie. “Guys who used to suffer the broken hands in the organization consistently, like (Bellator welterweight champion Douglas) Lima – who every time he’d throw one of those big overhand rights would end up in the hospital and have to get reconstructive surgery on his hand again – have no issues.”

    “(Hand injury requiring surgery) is almost gone from this company, and it’s because of that glove technology. It’s shocking how cool it’s been in this company and for the most important thing we have, which is the fighters.”

    “I would be willing to share these gloves and this technology with anybody – any small organization, the UFC, anybody who wants this technology. They should have it because it has absolutely changed the dynamic of guys breaking their hands in our organization.”

    Injury statistics are being compiled and Rebney said the sport will be amazed “when you see the release and see the actual numerical documentation on how much better hand-injury results are from our events since we changed those gloves.”

    They do. Are they heavier as well or still 4 oz?

    I'd like to see the stats on eye pokes. The fingers look longer.

    It won't really change eye pokes will it, fingers are still extended and seperated. I personally think fighters need to be trained to stop keeping there fingers extended, no reason you can't use a cupped hand to block shots.

    ive always thought the old pride "mitten" style gloves were the best solution for eye pokes, no individual fingers.

    I thought I had read an article a few months back that said the gloves prevented the fighter from opening his hand completely thus helping with the pokes.
