A very sad day for the mixed martial arts (MMA) community.
Up-and-coming featherweight prospect Jordan Parsons died on Wednesday (May 4, 2016) as a result of injuries sustained during his hit-and-run accident earlier this week in Delray Beach, Florida.
He was just 25 years old.
From Bellator MMA 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.”
The driver who struck and ultimately killed “Pretty Boy” is still at large.
More on this unfortunate news shortly.
