I'm guessing because it is owned by the same company that owns the UFC Anyways I am going with Dream also.

Strikeforce is doing what is thought to be impossible making money in their 2nd year. Everyone else seems to be throwing money away and Strikeforce just seems to do everything right ATM.
I was thinking each has its own reasons an argument could be made for it so I was more looking for a personal opinion.

I voted Elite XC because they may not have the talent of Affliction but they do have a network TV deal and there production on last nights card was second only to the UFC, I also really like the annoucning, as much talent as Affliction had I really hated everything except what was in the fighters hands, they had crappy announcing and crappy production and they looked second rate even with a very stacked PPV, were Elite XC has top notch production with out the names but I think they will do far more to increase the audiance than Affliction ever will and I feel that Affliction will never expand outstide of MMA fans and reach the broad scale audiance that the UFC has been able to and even Elite XC on the last special started to.

It's got to be Affliction they will soon have #1 and #2 heavyweight with Couture vs. Fedor. However I think DREAM is the only one that can survive. If Randy beats Fedor he'll retire and Affliction will have a hard time. If Fedor wins, he'll beat Arlovski and Barnett then what? He might retire or lose interest and not fight anyone for another two years. Elite XC only has two top male fighters (Lawler and Shields) and two good male fighters (Silva and Diaz). Eventually Shields, Lawler, and Silva will leave to fight the top competition. Kimbo will lose. Carano will go to Hollywood. Then they will be done. DREAM has the Japanese fan base and will be able to keep making money.
