I watched that fight again, and - yes - Cyborg was in several situations where she would have been vulnerable to an attempted armbar.

In watching the Tate-Rousey fight, there were several situations where Rousey was in a position where a good striker (like Cyborg) would have been able to unload on her.

If Rousey can get Cyborg on the ground early in the fight, then Rousey has a clear advantage. If Cyborg can keep the fight off the ground, or at least land a few solid blows before taking Rousey to the ground, then Cyborg has the advantage. There's no secret to what their fight gameplan is.
