The Head Butt?

Yeah, I know that the head butt is highly illegal in boxing,and while I haven't had time to read the rules, I'd assume that the head butt is probably a highly illegal maneuver in MMA and UFC,too.
But in a streetfight, it might prove to be a highly effective technique.
Yes?
No?
My question is,how do they traditionally train the headbutt in MMA and these other styles where they do train the headbutt?
What do they do to practive it, and more importantly, to develop it?

A head butt in a streetfight, I think, would be highly effective.

My prediction went to Sh!t...

The headbutt's effectiveness all depends on where you hit your head on the other guy. You have to make sure you hit with your forehead mainly and you want to the other guys nose.

A headbutt is probably the single most effective thing you can use to start off street fight if you know how to do it properly.
I have also seen it used highly effectively in MMA.
