Is it because he is a non-Zuffa fighter. I smell Zuffa-Zombies.
Any promo outside of the UFC has "lesser" compition because big bad Dana says so.
The reason people believe this is other promos have a hard time getting the word out in America since its UFC territory.
I bet you over-seas in Asia the UFC is having a harder time getting the word out since its DREAM/WVR territory.
No promotions outside of the UFC and Strikforce have lesser competition because it's the truth. The reason Aoki hasn't made his way state side is that he will get beaten by the top guys here, so he hides in DREAM. When DREAM dies, he'll go to Sengoku.

Part of it though isn't even so much the guys in Strikeforce or the UFC are that much better, a lot of it IMO is that the guys he is fighting in Japan are good matches for him. stylistically the guys in Strikeforce and the UFC are much worse for him and because they want to maintain him as a star Dream will continue to protect him from those kind of match ups.

Well since those are basically the only choices, you're probably right.
