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
