It isn't an easy fix...
Dana White recently spoke (via MMAjunkie) about his statement back in May that the UFC was looking into new gloves to prevent eye pokes. Check out the highlights:
On the progress: "We're working on it. But what are you going to do?"
On the challenges of the issue: "That's not an easy fix. How do you make a glove that you can grapple in and not poke people in the eye in? It makes it tough...Keep your f---ing fingers closed. The eye-poke is the most dangerous thing that happen out there. Tim Boetsch already had surgery on his [poked eye], and he pokes him twice. It's bad. Keep your hands closed."
