I have no idea how European soccer works. So I think your analogy is somewhat lost on me. The best example I see as an analogy is basketball. In the beginning, there were two main orgainizations NBA and ABA like UFC and PRIDE. Just like those two one swallowed up the other and took the best players and ideas implemented them, and got rid of what didn't work. There are still small US organizations that eventually funnel some players into the NBA. Also the European leagues have some great talent, most of which eventually come play in the NBA. I think that is a great model as well.

As far as Americans not working well with others, you're originally talking about an American promotion strikeforce. Like I said I would comment on soccer but don't know anything about it.
