Just no. BJJ isn't all submission all the time. When a fighter reclaims guard, that's BJJ. Hell, holding someone in guard is BJJ. BJJ is used more defensively now. When it was new in the US, it was better used offensively. Now, when it's used to attack, the opponent knows how to defend. At some point, it's just easier to land punches rather than lock onto a limb.
