Other tips on throwing a Head Butt:

Do not ballistically snap your head into the opponent using your neck. You'll injure yourself that way. It is much more effective to tuck you chin, lower your base and use your legs to propel yourself into the opponent, much like you would with an uppercut.

Strike with the crown of your head (as Ironman noted). This way if you get cut (and if you're throwing HB out as viciously as you can, you will get cut), it bleeds into your scalp and not into your eyes.

Aim for the chin, cheek, nose or temple. Anywhere else and you're just clashing skull to skull. You want your head to make contact with a softer, more "receptive" part of their body.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

persononly I do not think it should be allowed to much is at risk for both fighters brain damage wise in a sport where a carrear can be periously short. I like to see good fights not someone get seriously hurt. i like competition and skill. that is part of the reason I did not like Tank Abbot sure he was a colorful character. but he was a brawler who only know how to hurt people hence he did not last long in MMA from what I could tell. A few lucky shots and he'd hurt some people win some fights but against a seasoned fighter he would be toast. EARLY UFC was lacking alot of seasoned fighters the ones who did most of the winning were your only examples. I'd like to be able to follow a fighter over a carear not just a couple fights and forget who he was cause he now drools all over himself like my 3 month old.

I'm inclined to agree with The Don too. The sport needs to grow and allowing things that are very "street-fightish" (new word) like headbutts would just further the negitive sterotype the sport has. Now if you train and you want to learn how to throw a headbutt it is very effective for self-defense.

That it can be espically if you our out numbered and get grabbed a head but can take an opponent out for several minutes espically if they have never had thier nose broken it can be a very humbling experience to someone and a major deterrant to thie friends if they see one of thier buddies get his nose splattered and the blood which looks like alot but is actually not very serious since its mainly just cappalary bleeding. it looks a mess but works in most cases

Isn't the point of MMA to simulate a street fight in a controlled situation. That's the way I understand it anyway.

I understand the bit about keeping both fighters safe and all, but I guess I prioritize a little bit differently.

Yes and no. You have to remmber above all else its a compitetion. No one does this in hopes of ending up with severe brain damage but not alot of people understand how different injuries effect the body over a long term period. Sadly boxing has not taking this into consideration but most boxers nowadays are well aware of the risks from getting to many blows to the head over a long period of time since MMA has so much more dynamics to its compititions there are not as many blows aimed directly at the head over hte course of a fight due to shorter fight lengths and so many other options open to a fighter this is as not as serious as a concern but head butts would just add to this and introduce extra risk that is not really needed, where as in a street fight it is a good strike, in MMA it is not really needed.

Headbutting can seriously damage someone, so i'd keep it illegal.

I think keep headbutting out, and eliminate fence usage as well.
