Diego Brandao and Akira Corassani were both coached by Michael Bisping on the 14th season of The Ultimate Fighter. Brandao claimed the season title on the show for Bisping and himself.
Saturday, both earned wins at UFC on FUEL TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi, much to the delight of their former coach.
“My boys from TUF 14 are doing well,” Bisping posted on Twitter. “Nice wins by (Corassani) and great submission by (Brandao) proud of you boys.”
Corassani defeated Robbie Peralta to kick-start the FUEL TV main card, while Brandao finished Pablo Garza in the very next fight.
Bisping, meanwhile, will compete later this month at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen against Alan Belcher.
