    I think that headbutts are fairly safe and effective techniques in the clinch, unless you accidentally start a headbutting contest, which is possible. Learning proper form (chin tucked, correct neck angle + body position) also teaches you how to defend as well- if someone tries to headbutt you and you automatically tuck your chin right, they'll face-butt the hairline of your head.

    Headbutting is allowed in lethwei, which is a competitive sport like muay thai, so they probably teach effective ways of doing things. Maybe do some research into that. It seems that a lot of CMAs avoid the clinch except to do a throw/takedown, that's my guess why you don't see them in CMAs much.

    There's a traditional movement called yi tou sui bei (头碎碑) that I've usually heard translated as "head smashes tombstone" (sometimes "stone tablet" or "stele"):



    ... the hand movement and lean make it look like a throw, but it's more like this in application:



    Also, just for entertainment value, here's a fellow head butting a stone tablet on Chinese television:

    headbutting is extremely important in a real fight, should always be taught.
