The 25-year old was hit by a motor vehicle at Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning and needed to have the bottom half of his right leg amputated. He’s currently listed in critical condition at Delray Medical Center based on Blackzillians teammate Rashad Evans.
Bellator released a statement suggesting Delray Beach police are seeking info from anybody who might have seen the crash. “Bellator was advised of a terrible accident that happened last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who had been hit by an automobile in a hit-and-run incident,” the statement read. “We are still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s consent, hope to have an update on his medical condition shortly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan and his family as he recovers. The hit-and-run occurred on Lindell Blvd. and South Federal Highway at Delray Beach, Florida. Anyone with information regarding this incident is requested to call the Delray Beach Police Department in -LRB-561-RRB-??243-7800.” Parsons (12-2) was scheduled to fight Adam Piccolotti in Bellator 154 in San Jose on May 14. It’s likely Piccolotti will not have a replacement competitor and the bout will be scrapped. I interviewed Parsons last week ahead of his Bellator 154 matchup and he was excited about the move back up to lightweight. On behalf of myself and the remainder of the MMAOddsBreaker.com group, I’d love to send my well wishes to Jordan, his family and his teammates through this challenging moment.
