I think that fight went five rounds because Cain made sure he didn't fall into a cheap submission on the ground. Wrestlers can be very successful against BJJ if they avoid positions where they can get locked.
The beauty of Cain's performance is that he went for basically everything except leglocks. Armbars, leg kicks headkicks, even a (failed) hip toss, and of course standing toe-to-toe with a guy who knocked him cold.
