Apparently the philosophy of quitting while you're ahead doesn't apply to Dave Oancea.

The professional gambler, who won a staggering $240,000 from a $20,000 bet on Holly Holm to beat Ronda Rousey in November, is at it again, according to MMAjunkie.

The man known as "Vegas Dave" has placed a $77,000 wager on Holm to be upset by Miesha Tate in Las Vegas on Saturday.

I told @MieshaTate 3 months ago that she would be the next champion. Talked to her yesterday & it's going to happen https://t.co/FqWsjvg78o

"He just texted me earlier today," Tate said to MMAjunkie Radio. "He said, 'I'm upping my bet to $77,000.'"

He stands to win $192,500 if successful, which pales in comparison to the $2,457,200 he won from 26 bets (between $500 and $25,000) on the Kansas City Royals' World Series win in 2015.
