The 25-year old has been struck by a motor vehicle in Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning and needed to have the lowest half of his right leg amputated. He’s now listed in critical condition at Delray Medical Center according to Blackzillians teammate Rashad Evans.
Bellator published a statement suggesting Delray Beach authorities are seeking info from anyone who may have witnessed the crash. “Bellator was informed of a dreadful accident that happened last night between featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was hit by an automobile at a hit-and-run episode,” the announcement read. “We’re still in the process of discovering details and with his family’s consent, expect to get an update on his medical state soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan and his family as he recovers. The hit-and-run happened on Lindell Blvd. and South Federal Highway in Delray Beach, Florida. Anyone who has information regarding this incident is requested to call the Delray Beach Police Department at -LRB-561-RRB-??243-7800.” Parsons (12-2) has been scheduled to fight Adam Piccolotti in Bellator 154 in San Jose on May 14. It’s likely Piccolotti will not have a replacement opponent and the bout will be scrapped. I interviewed Parsons a week ahead of the Bellator 154 matchup and he was excited about the move 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 loved ones and his teammates through this difficult moment.
