Bellator President Scott Coker released a statement on Parsons this on Tuesday.
“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.”
Rest in Peace to Jordan Parsons, and our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this time.
If by chance you’re in the Florida area;
