The 25-year old has been hit by a motor vehicle in Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning and needed to have the lowest 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 suggesting Delray Beach police are seeking info from anybody who may have witnessed the crash. “Bellator has been advised of a terrible accident that happened last night between featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was hit by a vehicle at a shout episode,” the announcement read. “We’re still in the process of discovering details and with his family’s approval, hope 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 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 at -LRB-561-RRB-??243-7800.” Parsons (12-2) has been scheduled to combat Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 in San Jose on May 14. It is likely Piccolotti will not have a replacement opponent and the bout will probably be scrapped. I interviewed Parsons a week before the Bellator 154 matchup and that he was excited about the move back up to lightweight. On behalf of myself and the rest of the MMAOddsBreaker.com team, I’d like to send my well wishes to Jordan, his family and his teammates through this challenging moment.
