Jordan Parsons, 25, passes away after hit-and-run in Florida
Earlier this week we learned that Bellator MMA star Jordan Parsons was struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run incident in Del Ray, Florida.
Today, we learned of Parsons’ unfortunate passing, four days after the incident occurred.
Statement From Bellator President Scott Coker:
“It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a dear member of the Bellator family, Jordan Parsons. Jordan was an exceptional athlete and a rising star in the sport. But more importantly, he was an exceptional young man. Jordan was hard-working, dedicated, intelligent, and a pleasure to be around. He represented all the reasons we love this sport. It is a terribly tragic loss and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and teammates.”
Parsons, a member of the South Florida based team “The Blackzilians” was scheduled for a May 14, Bellator 154 bout with Adam Piccolotti.
Any information regarding the incident or the vehicle should be forwarded to the Delray Beach Police Department at 561-243-7810.
