We dont know if they seen each other or not since then, most likely they did at some point.. 

Even if they didnt, by roars and scent marking they recognize each others on territory border.. DM exactly knows where his brothers are and vice versa..

Most likely they see each others at least from time to time and keep their bond up. Most likely their bond still would be strong even if they wouldn't meet even from time to time. Mr T Mapogo was easly accepted back by his brothers after almost 2 years of formally spliting from a coallition (separate arena and prides). As I mentioned I do not think DM really split from a coalition, but as Mr T example shows even if he would I do not think Avocas would threat each others as rivals.

I know in bush can happend everything , they maybe meet each other time to time, but we do not have any photo or video, for me this is really interesting (another chapter of lions life), i am watching sabi sand lions around 4 years and i do not know what happening mapogos or matimba males split time, but i know when mr t went back he killed all cubs  sired by his brothers.

Coalitions split up to control more territory and prides.. You could find this example in almost every bigger coalitions, when they conquer territory and sire cubs they often divide themselves between the numerous prides and only rejoin sometimes in patrols..

Best current example are Mantimahles, after they conquer Sand River and Plains Camp prides and mate with them, they left those prides for 5th Mantimahle, other 4 moved of, and now 3 are with Nkuhlu pride and 4th Mantimahle has his own pride on s21.. Idk where is 5th Mantimahle currently, he might rejoin his brothers after he lost those 2 prides..

Dark Mane Avoca on this morning's Wild Earth broadcast. He has developed a beautiful mane and was limping slightly. Wonder if it's related to the earlier injury.

I think Skorokoro of the Nharhu male is on the same way with the limp.
