You’d be hard-pressed to find two more positive-minded fighters than Sergio Moraes and Ben Saunders, so it’s not too surprising that they’d get along even after throwing down in the Octagon.

“Serginho” defeated Saunders by second-round arm-triangle submission in their preliminary bout at UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Anders on Saturday, and afterwards Saunders sought out Moraes for some pointers.

One of the most respected Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in all of MMA, Moraes looked happy to show Saunders how he got him into position for the fight-ending submission maneuver. In a clip posted by coach Andre Dida, both welterweights can be seen smiling throughout, and it looks like Saunders definitely made the most of his experience tangling with Moraes.
