Vegas Dave makes historic $1 million bet on Miesha Tate


Dave Oancea, also known as ‘Vegas Dave’ is taking a huge risk.  The well-known sports better has placed a one-million dollar wager on Miesha Tate defeating Amanda Nunes at UFC 200.

Last year Dave bet $20,000 on Holly Holm over Ronda Rousey at 11-1 odds. He then followed up that up by putting down $70,000 on Miesha Tate over Holly Holm. Through both bets, Dave made roughly half a million dollars.

Dave most recently bet $5,000 on Michael Bisping to upset Luke Rockhold at UFC 199.  When Bisping won, so did Dave.  Dave took home $37,500 with Bisping’s win.

“Most people that bet big money they do it underground or over shores to avoid taxes and eyes watching them,” he said.

“Me, I’m a pretty open book. I found someone overseas to make the bet and it’s already in place… It would be the highest sports bet on paper ever seen. No one’s ever seen a million dollar wager on paper… It would also be the biggest paid sports bet in UFC history.”
