It's effective, you can keep your level low and elbows close to the body, making it harder to shoot in on a leg or get underhooks in a clinch.

I have no idea that's the best or something, but yeah, seems a really good threat against a level change.
I also love to see a fighter uses the uppercut to the somewhere like chest to threat for the level change and his opponent wrestler starts visibly hesitating.
sometime those strikes turn into the great timing counter to the head as a result.

Ramble's right uppercut against Davis
Shlemenko's left middle hook? (Idk the proper name) against Brennan Ward
Hendo's uppercut KOed Renso (IIRC)
Derek Anderson's middle kick KOed Girtz

Additionally, I think it's more affected when they are in the open-guard situation (orthodox vs southpaw) because there are a more openings and space to throw rear-side strikes.

another tricky example I really like was Holloway vs. Bermudez.
Holloway looked for a lots spinning back kicks to the body and land it not once to the body, then to the head when Bermudez went for the sloppy level change.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:




after those little success, Holloway tried to do that again too often, though..

Exactly. My daughter-in-law was getting mouthy about helping with dishes after our family cookout and I put her back in her place like this:



You think she was able to take me down after that? Did not happen.

People have said it, but good TDD comes from good wrestling technique. Really, it is a technique all on it's own.

Generally, guys who are fundamentally sound all around tend to be harder to take down. But let's also not forget that it also depends on the opponent. I don't care how good your TDD is, a guy like GSP is going to be able to find a way to take you down or at a minimum open you up for other attacks. Some guys are just tremendous at changing levels and mixing it up.

Guys who utilize a lot of kicking also can be taken down off of those.

Cain is another good example. Maybe you can stop his TD attempts but he will turn your face into mess in the process.
