Wow, that's impressive. A BJJ instructor can't take you down, and you can counter ad subdue him? Awesome. Any art that can get your grappling to your level will be "accepted." The beauty of MMA is that all comers are welcome. COULD a brawler, or someone compeltely self taught off Youtube videos be champ? SURE! As long as you don't break the rules of wherever you are fighting, it's all good. We haven't seen any primarily Ninjustu fighters at a high level yet, but we could! It just so happens that in the recent past Muay Thai, Wrestling, and BJJ have been the main arts that the champs and high level guys have excelled at.
If Ninjutsu works for you (which it clearly does!) I'd say go for it, as people will not be prepared for your style.

Best of luck!
