Mizugaki getting Cruz, the Carceres match up, Gomi getting jury. They're winnable but they'll be brutal.
Mizugaki has gotten a couple of fights where he was the clear favorite on his current winning streak. Jury is probably an appropriate opponent for Gomi. Gomi either fights the bottom of the division and wins or the top of the division and gets killed in the UFC. Obviously Kanehara didn't have much of a chance against Faber but he was only signed so Faber could fight a local. At least Alex is an easier fight, though he is highly underrated.
