The internet went into an uproar when it was discovered that a dentist from America went to Zimbabwe and hunted and killed a lion, who the locals called Cecil. The lion was also a part of a study being done Oxford University, who had placed a tracking collar on the lion.
Lets remember that UFC fighters are people too and several of them had some pretty strong reactions to the news.

Confession: My heart hurts over Cecil the Lion. I have literally no connection to him or the circumstances but I feel awful/guilty about it.
