Coming off the first loss of his professional career, “The Ultimate Fighter 8” champion Efrain Escudero looks to bounce back at UFC 114 when he faces the youngest fighter to compete in the UFC.

Escudero and Dan Lauzon have agreed to face off at UFC 114 on May 29 in Las Vegas, a source close to the negotiation told Sherdog.com. Bout agreements have not yet been signed.

Escudero and Lauzon, who once trained together through UFC veteran Drew Fickett’s camp in Arizona, are coming off losses that saw them trapped in submissions that earned their opponents “Submission of the Night” awards. Evan Dunham submitted Escudero with an armbar at UFC Fight Night 20 on Jan. 11, while Lauzon tapped to a combination triangle choke and kimura by Cole Miller at UFC 108 on Jan. 2.

Escudero and Lauzon briefly trained partners when the Massachusetts-based 21-year-old, traveled to Arizona, where Escudero is based, for a brief training stint. Lauzon and his older brother Joe recently returned from a visit to Hawaii where they trained with B.J. Penn.
