In a slightly surprising move, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson pleaded not guilty to each of his charges. It was thought Jackson would immediately look for a deal from the District Attorney in return for a guilty plea. By pleading not guilty, Jackson is in effect asking for a trial, so he can make a defense. It is still possible he will end up accepting a deal and change his plea to guilty, but the move makes me think his lawyers feel like they have some thing they can use to their benefit. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I'm also anxious to see how big the court artist draws Rampage's head during the trial.
