No. MMA goes through cycles where different styles work in different divisions. It isn't uncommon to have a number of fighters with similar backgrounds all winning titles. By the way, there are four BJJ blackbelts holding belts right now (JDS, Silva, St. Pierre, and Aldo), five if you count Barao... so... not really a substantive difference.
