    Headbutts are definatly very effective. The key to their effectiveness is that they are a short-ranged, quick, non-telegraphed attacks which often catch people by suprise, as they just don't expect them.

    You have to be able to do them right though. If you don't, you'll just piss your opponent off.

    Most of us have probably seen "accidental" head butts in Boxing and the bad swelling and open cuts that come with it. Now that's nothing in comparison of someone who really wants to hit and hurt you with one. Without a doubt they are a very effective weapon.

    headbutts are very powerful. the damage u cause onto urself is smaller than if u get punched in the head in the skull. and in a fight u already get punched a lot in the head, so one headbutt wont make a difference.

    remember in a fight, ur worried only about getting punched in the jaw and nose, NOT the head! (unless its a baseball bat or head kick)

    The head-butt is the most painful strike to get hit by IMO...it really friggin hurts, more than elbows or knees. And headbutting people does not hurt your head, unless you hit the wrong area in which case its the same as punching the wrong area, except you won't fracture your skull whereas you may break your hand.

    Also they are a pain to block and if you're in someone's guard or vice versa and want to give the person something to think about, they're great...bring a whole new dimension to the guard.

    HEH, it works for me. I'm actually dissapointed they took it out of MMA competitions.

    Go away I'm talking to myself

    Yeah. I would love to see the headbutts come back. I don't think they will, though - too much blood... and we all know how much Senator John McCain loves blood sports. :(

    They can be good, they can hurt you as much/ more than your opponent - in early UFCs and NHb tornements they really weren't used that much, just sometimes...
