Tragedy befell Bellator MMA fighter, Jordon Parson (11-2) Sunday morning as he was the victim of a hit-and-run. His condition was reported as critical and required an amputation of one of his legs. Parsons was due to face Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 later this month at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

Parsons trained out of the “Blackzilians” camp in Florida and there is a “GoFundfme.com page set up to help Parsons medical relief. The 25-year-old fighter was in his prime coming off a close decision loss to Bubba Jenkins at Bellator 146. It is truly a tragic incident when someone pursuing their dreams faces something like this.

Bellator MMA released the following statement yesterday regarding Parsons including information of where the incident occurred and a number for anyone with information to contact the Delray Beach Police Department.

Bellator has been informed of a terrible accident that occurred last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run incident. We are still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s consent, hope to have an update on his medical condition 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 in Delray Beach, Florida. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Delray Beach Police Department at (561) 243-7800.
