His point is that events like this, which legitimize a painful caricature of the sport, damage it's credibility with many sources and offer support for advocates against the sport.

It presents a talking point and a handhold for those who attack the sport.

While I don't really agree with Curtis that this is the reason we haven't seen MMA in Madison Square Garden, it certainly doesn't help that a great sport is cheapened by ridiculous promoters with shady business interests.
