Which one do you prefer open or closed palm gloves? Closed gloves don't let your opponent to hook a finger in the glove, but some people grapple better with open gloves. I was looking to get a new pair of MMA glove, but I can't decide on which to get open or closed.

I like open hand gloves because they just feel better on my hands but that's just my opinion

If you're doing comp. fighting, its illegal to hook your fingers into the opponents gloves, so don't let that decide for you.

I like open palm because you get a better grip. I have a friend that has enormous hands and he likes the closed palm more, but hes mostly a striker and doesn't lose grip on the ground because of hand size.
