The 25-year old was struck by a motor vehicle at Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning and had to have the lowest half of the right leg amputated. He is now listed in critical condition at Delray Medical Center based on Blackzillians teammate Rashad Evans.
Bellator released a statement suggesting Delray Beach authorities are seeking info from anybody who might have witnessed the crash. “Bellator has been advised of a terrible accident that happened last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was struck by an automobile at a shout incident,” the statement read. “We’re still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s approval, expect to have an update on his medical state soon. 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 who has information regarding this incident is requested to call the Delray Beach Police Department in -LRB-561-RRB-??243-7800.” Parsons (12-2) has been scheduled to combat 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 before the 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 team, I’d like to send my well wishes to Jordan, his loved ones and his teammates through this challenging time.
