Jordan Parsons Memorial Scholarship announced – Info on How to Apply
J Robinson Intensive Wrestling Camps, in partnership with Bellator MMA and the family of the late Jordan Parsons, have introduced the Jordan Parsons Memorial Scholarship.
A standout high school wrestler from Berrien Springs, Michigan, Parsons attended the 14-Day Intensive Camp in 2007. He began his MMA career in June of 2008, winning his first 3 amateur fights before becoming a professional in 2010. Parsons was a rising star in the fighting world, amassing an 11-2 record with the Championship Fighting Alliance and Bellator, where he trained with the elite fighting team Blackzilians.
After his untimely death in 2016, Parsons’ mother contacted Bellator to request that an annual scholarship in his name be given to a deserving wrestler who wants to attend a J Robinson Intensive Camp. We are proud to introduce this scholarship to honor the legacy of Jordan Parsons.
To apply for the 2017 scholarship, please follow the instructions here at this link.
Applications are due by April 15, and a winner will be selected and notified by April 30.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
