The Headbutt?

I've been breaking peoples noses with the crown of my head since I was in middleschool.

What do people think about it in MMA competition and just in streetfighting?

Re: head butt

I tend to think it ought to be legal. Rules in MMA should be there primarily to prevent serious permenant damage to the fighters. For example elbow strikes to the throte while on the ground. I heard this could crush a wind pipe. Elbow strikes to the top of the head are no longer legal. I suspect this could cause spinal damage. IDK. I think hair grabbing should be legal too, like old school UFC. Then everybody will shave their head
Hopefuly sombody who know what they're talking about will chime in

let's keep head butting illegal. Just for my sake. My luck I would be on the ground with some melon head like tito and would just cave my face in. nah, doesn't sound very fun in my book.

Lol it would crush the windpipe and the permanent damage there would be death. It prevents alot of realism. Whereas in a fight on a street anything goes but there are restrictions.

I am very surprised that no one had their throat crushed on ufc by now as many elbows in throats that Ive seen. the elbows in temples could also pop eyes out so maybe thats why theyre banned too. headbutts are effective and I enjoy watching them and I hate watching a grapple fight drag on when there are so many headbutt openings that arent taken. I do not think they should be banned when knees are allowed since they can do similar damage.

I think head butts ar out because it can cause braindamage over time to both people plus there is the reisk of possible spinal injury though long term brain damage is a real issue. being an EMT it would cause damage similar to a low speed car crash which is capable of causing bruising to the brain and swelling and over time permenant injury. broken noses are a minor thing in comparison and yea I know it gives you a quick advantage

ok

The Don, that's interesting. I didn't think about that. Spinal injury and briusing the brain.

no head butting is way to dangerous for ufc.................But street fighting anything goes.

yea I am looking at it from an EMT stand point. In a car crash when your head hits the windshield that impact one, Impact 2 is the brain hitting the front of the skull, impact 3 in the brain hitting the back of the skull. this is not even counting damage to the neck and spine whihc as stated is minimal in a head butt but the breain impact is still there this is the leading cause of brain damage in boxers hence Rocky, it was not him being hit it was his brain bouncing around inside his skull
