The 90’s hit tv show Saved By The Bell is set to return later this year and it’s over 25 years since AC Slater and Zack Morris went toe-to-toe in the Bayside High corridors.
Since filming wrapped on Saved By The Bell, the show’s two star actors Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez are both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belts and are training together!
Both actors are in their mid 40’s and train BJJ regularly to keep in shape.
Mario Lopez posted the moment on his instagram:
Great training with my boy @MPGosselaar! Beat each other up for an hour and a half… #Jiujitsu #BJJ #OldSchoolHomies
Saved by the Bell aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993. The show featured a group of high school friends and their principal. The series starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond, Lark Voorhies, Dennis Haskins, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mario Lopez.
