Everyone's talking about Netflix's popular "Tiger King" documentary, so we asked fighters for their reaction to the seven-part series.

Paige VanZant - UFC strawweight

"It was amazing. Of course, like, what better timing for that to come out. For one, the producers of that. But then, two, for all of us at home. It's crazy. ... I do think Carole killed her husband. ... One-hundred percent I think that (Joe) was egged on. I do think he was guilty. But I think there's more people who are guilty too. He's not the only guilty one."

Austin Vanderford - Bellator middleweight

"I don't even really know what to say. I think what's even better is all the memes and everything coming out now. Like, seeing it all is so funny."

Curtis Blaydes - UFC heavyweight

"This dude (Joe) is crazy. He makes Americans look real, just like bad. He makes it look like we just like guns. Guns and drugs. He's an interesting dude and it really goes into like the abuses of tigers. I didn't realize how many tigers we have in America. There are more tigers here America in captivity than there are in the wild. I didn't realize that."

Charles Rosa - UFC featherweight

"I just finished watching the 'Tiger King' and man, is that guy (Joe) like a character, dude. I really couldn't get enough of him. As far as the Carole Baskins lady, do I think she killed her husband and fed him to the tigers? I would say she probably killed her husband but not sure if she's stupid enough to feed (him) to the tigers. Because (she'd) probably get in trouble pretty quick that way, but definitely a cool show. If you haven't seen it, check it out."

Brian Kelleher - UFC bantamweight

"I'll tell you what, did I watch 'Tiger King?' Of course, I watched 'Tiger King.' And do I think Carole Baskins killed her damn husband? ... I think she did."

Cody Stamann - UFC bantamweight

"I have watched it twice. I am completely obsessed with it. I cannot believe this is actually real. The scene where (Joe) talks about his balls at the funeral, I cannot believe that actually happened in real life. That's the most sick, hilarious thing I've ever seen. It's absolute, must-see, trash TV."

Tristan Connelly - UFC lightweight

"What are my thoughts on (Joe) and Satan incarnate Carole? Well, Joe ... I think he's (a) crazy, raging, redneck, man. He's doing his own thing. ... But Carole, that one's evil. ... Everyone wants to know, well, did she kill (her husband) and feed him to the tigers? Who knows. ... But I would absolutely be shocked if she wasn't somehow involved in the disappearance, whatever we're going to call that disappearance, whatever that means. I absolutely think she had something to do with it."

Tatiana Suarez - UFC strawweight

"First of all, Don is definitely tiger food. I feel like Joe was so set up. Like not just because they said it on there, but I just feel like they almost were like, 'Yeah, let's kill her, let's kill her,' and he's like, 'Yeah, yeah, let's do it.' (Joe) told them how much he hated (Carole) and they just like fed off it. Like, 'Oh I want to take this guy's zoo. Like, this would be perfect, let's set them up for murder for hire.' ... It's almost like giving someone guts, I don't know how to explain it. Bottom line, they're all shady as hell. And, like Carole ... she's doing the same thing that they're doing. She's profiting off of these tigers and the only difference is that she calls them freaking volunteers instead of paying them dirt cheap money, you know what I mean? Like they're all just profiting off of these animals. I felt like I wanted to go grab these animals and just like take them to the wild and be like, 'Here, here you go.'"

Gerald Meerschaert - UFC middleweight

"Carole Baskin, if she's smart, it wouldn't have been the tigers. You're all looking in the wrong spot. She's in Florida. Gators would have got rid of the whole body, no problem."
