This is scary stuff right here. I think it's a problem we'll see in MMA in the foreseeable future. Just because of the fingers sticking out of the gloves. I don't have an answer, but these eye injuries are a lot more dangerous than people realize. If you need any kind of an example for the lack of seriousness people pay toward eye injuries just take a look at the Varner vs. Cerrone fight.

Amare Stoudamire from the Phoenix Suns just had to get eye surgery this last year, too. That stuff is scary as hell.
