The 25-year old was 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 searching for info from anyone who may have seen the crash. “Bellator was informed of a terrible accident that happened last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who had been struck by an automobile in a shout episode,” the statement read. “We are still in the process of discovering details and with his family’s consent, expect to get an update on his medical condition 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 in 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) was scheduled to combat Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 at San Jose on May 14. It is likely Piccolotti will not have a replacement competitor and the bout will probably be scrapped. I interviewed Parsons last week before 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 like to send my well wishes to Jordan, his loved ones and his teammates throughout this challenging moment.
