Pic: Vegas Dave, bane of 'Sin City' sportsbooks, betting $1 million on Miesha Tate to win at UFC 200

New, comments

Earlier this year, "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.

Clearly the man knows what he's doing.

That's probably why I wasn't that surprised to learn he's now betting $1 million on Tate (-250) to retain her title against 135-pound "Lioness" Amanda Nunes (+195), who gets her chance to upset the apple cart -- and bankrupt Oancea -- at the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that contest here).

Crazy? We'll find out on July 9.
