Sean Strickland, the former UFC middleweight champion, has made his opinion clear about the new UFC gloves: “They absolutely suck.” As he prepares to face Paulo Costa in the co-main event of UFC 302, Strickland didn’t hold back in his criticism of the revamped glove design.

The UFC introduced a new state-of-the-art glove design, set to debut at UFC 302 in Newark, New Jersey. The goal was to address the issue of cuts caused by the previous design, which featured a prominent seam on the outer part of the glove. However, Strickland isn’t convinced that the gloves were the root of the problem.

Sean Strickland’s Rant

During  UFC 302 media day, Sean Strickland unleashed a passionate rant, questioning the decision-makers behind the new gloves. He expressed frustration with their lack of practical understanding:

“Yeah, they suck. I don’t know who – could we talk to the person who designed these gloves? Have you ever been in a fight in your expletive life? It’s like you get these expletive dorks that have no idea, and they’re like, ‘Oh, this sounds like a good idea,’ and they make it… How did you expletive think this was a good idea? They absolutely suck. UFC dropped the ball on that one.”

Sean Strickland believes that the focus on glove design misses the mark. He argues that fighters getting poked in the eyes is more about hand positioning than the gloves themselves. According to him:

“What was the reasoning? They wanted to make it so that people stop poking people in the eyes? Well, they’re a little bit more stitched. And, dude, at the end of the day, people expletive get poked in the eyes because they open their expletive hands. Unless you put a boxing glove on, that expletive won’t stop. It’s just people creating a problem that we did not have.”

Saturday’s UFC 302 event will mark the first time the new glove design is used in an official fight. While the intention was to reduce eye pokes, Strickland remains skeptical. He believes that fighters need to be more mindful of their hand positioning to prevent such incidents.
