If you can it’s best to flatten your material first,but I have riped cupped wood many times in the way you described,you never want the cup side up,because it will pinch the blade as the cup is cut. When I cut cupped wood I always hold the side next to the fence flat to keep a consistent cut and prevent kick back. How you bent the blade doing this operation is puzzle to me unless you have an incredibly cheep blade.
