CHRIS NELSON'S BELLATOR THEATRE ADVENTURE
"Heading out now. If you're going to Bellator, come say hi. I'll be wearing black booty shorts and holding a big card with a number on it." -Chris Nelson, everybody follow @3amMMA for news and adventures.
"Of course it started pouring as soon as I pulled out of the driveway. Also, don't think I'm crazy, but I think there's someone following me... Rain stopped. I think I finally shook the tailer. Still, got a weird feeling from that. Ah well. Probably nothing to worry about." -Chris Nelson
"Just arrived at Mohegan. Red Sox legend Fred Lynn signing autographs at the same time as Bellator, so I'm probably gonna skip the fights... I love how there's a land line at every press seat. In case you need to call J. Jonah Jameson with a hot scoop! http://twitpic.com/1hlq3g" -Chris Nelson
"Just walked into the wrong door backstage and was scowled at by a familiar-looking gray-haired janitor. Was that... blood on his hands?" -Chris Nelson
"What a crummy 500th tweet that was. Speaking of crummy, this janitor is creeping me out. I went to the bathroom and there he was again." -Chris Nelson, who was also tweeting bellator results in between these.
"Alright, I can't take it anymore. I've got to know what was in that room I stumbled into earlier. I just don't trust this janitor... Oh my god! Inside the closet was the lifeless body of a Bellator employee, impaled with a mop handle. What do I do?! Shit, next fight's on." -Chris Nelson
"The janitor saw me. He was lurking backstage and made a throat slashing motion as I ran back to my seat on press row. I'm terrified, guys... Now I know where I recognize the janitor from! He was in the car tailing me on my way here! I don't think he's a janitor at all." -Chris Nelson
"I just went to show a security guard the dead body backstage... but it was gone! Two more fights and then I'm getting to the bottom of this... Covering events live has really made me appreciate fighters who tattoo their own names across their backs. Makes it easy to keep track." -Chris Nelson
"Couldn't convince anyone that I was serious about the body I found backstage. Just got to my car and... wait, why is the trunk open? ...Who's that tall figure lurking in the shadows of the parking garage? It's the janitor! And he put the body in my trunk! ...The janitor - who told me his real name is Herm Wilkinson - hates Japanese MMA and planned to frame me for murder tonight!" -Chris Nelson
"He charged me with a knife, but after a struggle, he fell from the sixth floor roof of the parking garage. When I looked down, he was gone... Now I've got a body in my trunk and no way to explain it. And a two hour drive home. I'll have to deal with this tomorrow. I am bushed." -Chris Nelson
"Annnnd... scene. Hope everyone enjoyed Mastertweet Theatre. Over and out." -Chris Nelson
