In a short period of time, Dave Oancea, better known as “Vegas Dave”, has gone from an unknown to an MMA betting legend. He made a load of cash when Holly Holm defeated Ronda Rousey, and when Miesha Tate choked Holm unconscious at UFC 196, he cashed in a $77K bet for nearly $200K in winnings. Vegas Dave has won millions gambling across sports, with some truly incredible calls that would make any sports fan proud, but he’s currently swallowing a bitter, million dollar loss. His historic bet on Miesha Tate has backfired.
Still love u @MieshaTate
We now know that Amanda Nunes destroyed Tate by busting her up with accurate strikes before forcing her to tap to the rear-naked choke, so because of those bloody few minutes, Dave lost a million dollars.
Maybe it was his haters:
I mean, unbelievable how miserable some people are out there… they’re praying for me that I lose tonight.
At least he’s handling it well.
Forget the money. I feel the pain for @MieshaTate I will always be her number one fan. Much love and respect for her. #UFC200 #vegasdave
For Dave, the only way to react after losing a million bucks in a matter of seconds is a quiet, zen-like calm. A calm perhaps, before the storm of total grief.
It’s a cold night in Nevada for Vegas Dave.
