YEah fighers dont do that too much unless it has been one hell of a round or they have enormous respect for each other. When the touch gloves they instantly jump back then carry on fighting it takes up maybe 5 seconds max, its not that big of a deal.
It happens a lot on the TUF finales because the undercard is made up of fighters who became friends on the show.
