    DELRAY BEACH, Florida — Police in Florida say mixed martial arts fighter Jordan Parsons has died three days after a hit-and-run crash.

    Delray Beach police say in a post on their Facebook page that the 25-year-old Parsons was crossing a highway in Delray Beach early Sunday morning when he was hit by a vehicle that then fled.

    Police say Parsons was wearing headphones at the time and may not have heard the vehicle approaching. They say pieces of a 2012 or 2013 Range Rover Sport were found at the scene.

    Parsons was critically hurt in the accident and police say he died at a hospital on Wednesday.

    The Michigan native fought for Bellator MMA and had an 11-2-0 record. Bellator president Scott Coker calls Parsons "an exceptional athlete and a rising star in the sport."
