Pic: Vegas Dave poses with Miesha Tate, posts UFC 196 betting slip ticket that paid whopping $223,000

I haven't seen a wager this risky since Lincoln Hawk bet $7,000 on himself to capture the World Arm Wrestling Championship in Las Vegas.

Late last month, "Vegas" Dave Oancea bet $77,000 on Miesha Tate and promised mixed martial arts (MMA) fans "Cupcake" would win the women's bantamweight championship from Holly Holm -- the same "Preacher's Daughter" who landed him $220,000 when he picked her to upset Ronda Rousey at UFC 193.

His ticket:

This guy is crazy. Crazy rich!

Highlights of Tate's upset win, which took place at UFC 196 on March 5, can be viewed here.

Watch the incredible video highlights from UFC 196!

It will be interesting to see what Vegas Dave bets -- if he bets at all -- when Tate moves on to fight Rousey later this year (details), considering "Rowdy" is already up 2-0 on the current champ.

Hat trick?
