The talent pool may be a little thin.

I'm glad to see they didn't throw Hatsu Hioki a softball. Props to World Victory Road for not giving their stars an easy time of it.

EDIT: It's a poor assumption to say that Sengoku mirrors DREAM. They spend less money on fighters and grow their own stars; they don't give in to the demands of high-profile fighters like DREAM is doing with Yamamoto. Mirroring DREAM in every way would bankrupt Sengoku like it's going to do to DREAM.
