Was Cutting Rousimar Palhares Fair?

Dana White made it official...

Do you think it was blatant? You be the judge...

This was already mentioned on http://mmafightcritic.com/comment/313#comment-313

I heard mention that in a previous fight he let go after a tap and the guy pretended not to have tap at all and the fight continued. Thus, he never takes any chances anymore. Was the crank after the tap long enough to be considered flagrant?

Speaking of heel hooks - they hurt!
