Bellator 154: "Davis vs. King Mo," which takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., on May 14, 2016, was originally scheduled to feature Jordan Parsons (11-2) versus undefeated fighter Adam Piccolotti (7-0) on the Spike TV main card.
That all changed on this past weekend when Parsons was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Delray Beach, Florida. The initial prognosis for Parsons' outcome was poor. A tweet from Ariel Helwani shows his situation is even more dire than initially reported.
Just spoke to @glennauthentic: Jordan Parsons had to have his full right leg amputated last night. His organs were starting to fail ...— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 2, 2016
As Parsons lays in a hospital bed fighting for his life, the Delray Beach Police Department is urging the public to come forward with any information about the suspect who ran him down.
There isn't much to go on at this moment except a damaged side mirror that was left on the crime scene.
This mirror left at the scene of hit-and-run crash belongs to a 2012-13 grey Range Rover Sport. @CrimeStoppersPB pic.twitter.com/68CNeHg3SG— Delray Beach Police (@DelrayBeachPD) May 2, 2016
This piece of a 2012-13 Range Rover Sport was painted to match the hit-and-run SUV's grey color. Help us find it! pic.twitter.com/F7658l5dJN— Delray Beach Police (@DelrayBeachPD) May 2, 2016
Meanwhile, Parsons continues to fight for his life.
And his heart was only working at 20%. He's currently having heart surgery and that should last another hour or so, per Robinson.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 2, 2016
