  • Pros react to the tragic death of Bellator fighter Jordan Parsons

    The mixed martial arts world has gathered to mourn one of its own.

    Bellator featherweight Jordan Parsons passed away on Wednesday, succumbing from injuries sustained in a hit-and-run accident this past Sunday in Delray Beach, Fla. He was just 25 years old.

    Anyone with information regarding the accident is urged to contact the Delray Beach Police Department at 561-243-7810. The suspect is believed to be driving either a 2012 or 2013 Range Rover Sport with damage to its left side.

    On Wednesday, the community took time to remember Parsons, and the talent that was stolen from this world far too soon.


    RIP Jordan Parsons We'll continue to #DreamBig for you #blackzilians

  • Edson Barboza vs. Gilbert Melendez in the works for UFC on FOX 20

    A lightweight matchup between Edson Barboza and Gilbert Melendez is in the works for July 23's UFC on FOX 20 event in Chicago.

    Globo originally reported the matchup Wednesday, and MMA Fighting has since confirmed.

    Barboza (17-4) is coming off the biggest win of his career, a unanimous-decision victory over former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 197.

    Barboza repeatedly blasted Pettis with kicks throughout the bout, controlling the stand-up portion of the fight and cruising to victory.

    Melendez (22-5), meanwhile, has not competed since a split-decision loss to Eddie Alvarez at UFC 188 this past June. Following that fight, Melendez failed a drug test for "exogenous origin of testosterone metabolites" and was suspended one year.

    Prior to the suspension, Melendez was slated to face Al Iaquinta at UFC Fight Night 71 in San Diego.

    With Barboza ranked sixth and Iaquinta ranked 12th, the suspension actually worked in Melendez's favor where rankings are concerned. With a win over Barboza, Melendez will likely catapult back into title contention in the 155-pound class.

    The same can be said for Barboza, who, with back-to-back wins over Pettis and Melendez, would boast one of the strongest resumes in the division.

  • Bellator's Jordan Parsons dies following hit-and-run incident in Delray Beach

    Bellator MMA combatant Jordan Parsons passed away Wednesday afternoon following a hit-and-run incident in Delray Beach, Fla. He was 25 years old.

    Parsons was 11-2 in professional MMA competition, most recently gaining fame as a featherweight competitor for Bellator MMA. Under the Bellator banner, Parsons went 2-1 with one knockout and one submission victory.

    "It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a dear member of the Bellator family, Jordan Parsons," Bellator President Scott Coker said in a statement. "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 hit-and-run incident occurred Sunday, May 1, around 12:30 a.m. at the corner of Lindell Blvd. and South Federal Highway in Delray Beach. Parsons underwent a leg amputation and a splenectomy following the accident but remained in critical care until his passing Wednesday.

    The vehicle involved is believed to be a 2012 or 2013 Range Rover Sport. It left behind a side mirror at the scene and is believed to have damage to its left side. Parsons' manager, Bryan York, posted this photo to Parsons' Twitter in an attempt to identify the vehicle.

    Any information regarding the incident or the vehicle should be forwarded to the Delray Beach Police Department at 561-243-7810.

  • Jon Tuck gets new UFC Fight Night 87 opponent on four days’ notice

    Jon Tuck will face a different opponent on Sunday’s UFC event in Rotterdam, Netherlands, as undefeated UFC newcomer Josh Emmett replaces injured Nick Hein.

    Emmett (9-0) makes his promotional debut four months after defeating UFC veteran Christos Giagos to defend his West Coast FC lightweight title. The Team Alpha Male prospect was scheduled to meet Joshua Aveles Saturday, but pulled out of the event to make his Octagon debut the day after.

    Tuck (9-2), on the other hand, looks to go 4-2 in the UFC in Rotterdam. The 31-year-old lightweight hasn’t fought since a first-round submission victory over Tae Hyun Bang in May 2015. "Super Saiyan" finished his opponent in eight of his nine MMA victories, including two of his three wins under the UFC banner.

    UFC Fight Night 87 takes place Sunday at the Ahoy Rotterdam arena, and features Alistair Overeem vs. Andrei Arlovski in the main event.

  • Eddie Wineland vs. Frankie Saenz added to UFC on FOX 20 card

    A former WEC champion will make his return to the Octagon in July.

    Eddie Wineland, the first holder of the WEC bantamweight belt in 2006, will meet Frankie Saenz at UFC on FOX 20 in Chicago on July 23. Red Eye Chicago initially reported the bout Wednesday.

    Wineland (22-11-1), of nearby northwest Indiana, hasn't fought since a decision loss to Bryan Caraway at the same United Center last July. His last win was a knockout victory over Yves Jabouin in 2014.

    Saenz (11-3) of Phoenix, last competed at UFC 194, where he dropped a unanimous decision to Urijah Faber. The loss snapped a seven-fight win streak, which included victories in his first three UFC matchups.
