I think there is a slight difference between a UFC MW champ who happens to teach on the side and an school teacher who has her US MMA debut against a recently suspended for roids former champ. Franklin was already top of his game. Cyborg's opponent barely knew what was happening... but she had a hell of a chin (or Cyborg doesn't actually hit that hard).

Cyborg doesn't hit that hard, or at least not as hard as people think. She's had a lot of stoppages but to my knowledge always due to a barrage of punches rather than one solid one. If Rousey has any sort of chin Cyborg could be in trouble.
You may want to look up Finny vs Cyborg on youtube that kind of damage doesn't come from soft touches.
