The 25-year old has been hit by a motor vehicle in Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning and needed to have the bottom half of the right leg amputated. He’s currently listed in critical condition at Delray Medical Center according to Blackzillians teammate Rashad Evans.
Bellator released a statement indicating Delray Beach police are searching for info from anyone who might have seen the accident. “Bellator has been informed of a terrible accident that occurred last night between featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who had been hit by an automobile at a shout incident,” the announcement read. “We are still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s approval, hope to get an update on his medical state shortly. 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 at Delray Beach, Florida. Anyone with 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 combat Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 at San Jose on May 14. It’s likely Piccolotti won’t have a replacement competitor and the bout will probably be scrapped. I interviewed Parsons last week before his Bellator 154 matchup and he was excited about the move back up to lightweight. On behalf of myself and the rest of the MMAOddsBreaker.com group, I’d love to send my well wishes to Jordan, his family and his teammates throughout this challenging time.
