Report: Cowboys won't make any immediate changes to coaching staff

  Report: Cowboys won't make any immediate changes to coaching staff Despite owner Jerry Jones' admitted frustration with the coaching staff following the Dallas Cowboys' 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, no immediate coaching changes will be made, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. "With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," Jones said after the loss. "I don't think there's a game where a coaching staff couldn't do better. I don't like that we've got so many as I'm standing here"With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," Jones said after the loss. "I don't think there's a game where a coaching staff couldn't do better. I don't like that we've got so many as I'm standing here tonight.

Holly Holm will take on Raquel Pennington for a second time after all.

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion is set to meet Pennington at UFC 246 on Jan. 18 in Las Vegas, multiple sources told MMA Junkie's Mike Bohn.

Holm first defeated Pennington by split decision at UFC 184 in early 2015. It was Holm's Octagon debut. The rematch was originally scheduled for UFC 243 in October, but "The Preacher's Daughter" was forced out of the bout due to a hamstring injury.

Holm, who knocked out Ronda Rousey in 2015 to capture UFC gold, has alternated wins and losses in her past four outings. Most recently, she suffered a first-round knockout loss to current champ Amanda Nunes in July.

Pennington bounced back from a two-fight skid in her last bout, defeating Irene Aldana by split decision in July. "Rocky" holds a notable win over former 135-pound titleholder Miesha Tate.

UFC 246 will be headlined by a welterweight bout between Conor McGregor and Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.

They just watched it for that spectacle and that spectacle only. If there's not another sideshow on another boxing card, they're not going to watch"Yeah, it brought new eyes - for that night," Neal told theScore.
