Lorenzo would be the ideal candidate in my book. For the reasons Pashak stated, as well as his knowledge of handling big business, which he currently does. Lorenzo is the Wizard of Oz and Dana White is his projection, the talking figurehead for the media and the fans. But, Lorenzo enjoys his privacy and is not big on being the man in the spotlight. For him to drop the CEO crown and be the president would be folly, as he pulls the strings comfortably where he is.
There is noone else that I know of whom the Fertittas would accept. Bas Rutten would be a great ambassador of the sport, though I don't think he has the personality to be in Dana's shoes. He would be able to command and attention to the sport in a manner that has not been seen, nor do I think it will.
A former legend of the sport would be great to have ruling the most powerful organization in MMA but I don't see anyone besides Bas or Randy Couture. Someone who can see the industry from a fighter's perspective would be great because they would want to improve the sport's gaping holes in regulation before completing a plan of world domination.
