Bellator fighter Jordan Parsons' career is likely over after being hit by a motor vehicle in Delray Beach, Florida on Sunday morning.

Parsons, a featherweight affiliated with the Blackzilians, had the bottom half of his right leg amputated after he was the victim of an apparent hit-and-run incident.

Parsons is listed in critical condition at Delray Medical Center.

Parsons, a Michigan native who had an 11-2 record (2-1 Bellator), was scheduled to fight Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 in San Jose on May 14. It is expected the bout will be scrapped and Piccolotti will not have a replacement opponent.

Bellator released a statement indicating Delray Beach police are seeking info from anyone who may have witnessed the accident.

"Bellator has been informed of a terrible accident that occurred last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run incident," the statement read. "We are still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s consent, hope to have an update on his medical condition soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan and his family as he recovers. The hit-and-run occurred on Lindell Blvd. and South Federal Highway in Delray Beach, Florida.  Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Delray Beach Police Department at (561) 243-7800."

UPDATE: According to an Instagram post by Parsons' friend, Rashad Evans, Parsons is in a coma.
