Him performing 3 songs at one of their events would constitute not only him wearing their clothes out in public, but him making an apperance for them.
I doubt he would agree to have a live performance, simply to count as a public appearance. They would either have to bargain it out to count for a bunch of appearances (since it is more work) or pay him.

It will piss me off and make me less likely to get a show if I am on the fence about it already.
If the acts are playing for free (not likely) or as fulfilling a sponsored obligation (probably the case) then other than disliking the music, no one should really complain. If they are taking money for these appearances, that is a crime to the undercard fighters that could use an extra $10000.
On a side note...Metal Sanaz is unbelievably hot. She is definitely not for everyone, but sign me up!
The people who don't listen to metal are in the situation now that you would be in if they had a rap act play. Thats my problem. Realistically you are alienating fans since the common thread is MMA, not musical taste.
