    Von Flue's character actually grew on me shortly after he joined tuf. I felt bad he won then got traded to the other team. At first i thought he was a jackass but after a little i thought he was an ok guy and just trying to fit in. I never found him to be disrespectful and i think the flipping off was just some humor and heart he tried to add and show before tapping. lol I think he's an ok guy but i also don't know him too well.

    That's how I took it too. A more defiant way of giving a thumbs up.

    My guess is that the ref must have asked him if he gives up, then got flipped off, then watched Von Flue tap.

    Yeah...thats weird...I have never seen that submission before and I see it twice in a single week. All the cool kids must be using that submission...

Not everyone is going to be a model sportsman (like Waylon Mercy), and I think that MMA needs the occasional bad attitude.
    Oh...I agree with you 100%, but...and this is a BIG but, you don't disrespect your opponent when they have given you all the respect you supposedly deserve. Joe Riggs did nothing to deserve the finger except beat his ass. Be a bad boy outside the ring, but once you step through there, show some respect.
