Well I actually have to take Herman's side. When was the last time we saw a guy with a BJJ base be world champion? BJ Penn? But Penn by the time he was world champion @ LW was basically a boxer who used his BJJ when he got bored. Matt Serra is the other one but he has not submitted anyone in years.
I am not talking about guys with Black Belts either, I am talking about guys who use BJJ as their main weapon. Guys like Big Nog, Maia, Vinny, Yani and so on. Outside of BJ Penn there have really been no BJJ guys to hold world titles in years.
It seems to me now that BJJ is that thing you put in your back pocket just in case you need it. But really it is greatly over shadowed by wrestling and striking.
