If you are in your thirty’s and over, you may remember the cult TV show from the 90’s’Saved by the Bell’. Well, twenty years later, 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.
