With UFC 200, the matchmakers really outdid themselves. These are some of the tightest matchups on any card in recent memory and most fights could go either way. But that hasn't stopped some people from being confident about their picks.
“Vegas” Dave Oancea has had a history of big payouts by betting on UFC fights in recent years. He correctly predicted Holly Holm upsetting Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 and then followed up that bold prediction by betting on Miesha Tate to beat Holm at UFC 196. These two bets have earned Oancea nearly $450,000.
With that much success, it is no surprise that Oancea is willing to be bold with his money once again in the bantamweight division. While he is used to picking the challenger to win in upsetting fashion, Oancea now believes that Tate will successfully defend her belt. And he is not just sure, he is seven-figures sure. Oancea is betting $1,000,000 on Tate, for a payout of close to $1.4 million.
This may be a good sign for Tate as she prepares to take on Amanda Nunes. Oancea is notorious on the Vegas Strip for winning large bets consistently. If not, what's a million dollars to a man who self proclaims to have won $2 million in a month on baseball alone.
