‘Vegas Dave’ Oancea forgives and forgets losing $1 million on UFC 200

Vegas DaveOancea is still sweet on Miesha “Cupcake” Tate even though he lost a $1 million bet on her.

Oancea posted a video before Saturday’s UFC 200 saying he gambled on Tate to retain her bantamweight championship against Amanda Nunes.

Tate lost to Nunes in front of Oancea at T-Mobile Arena, as he sat next to UFC heroes Chuck Liddell, Dan Henderson and Georges St-Pierre, and Oancea’s girlfriend.

“Still love u… Forget the money,” Oancea tweeted to Tate, then he licked his wounds at Aria resort’s Jewel nightclub, where eight cocktail waitresses held signs spelling out “Vegas Dave” and his girlfriend kissed his sad face.



CUPCAKE

Meanwhile, Tate was publicly grateful for fans yelling “We love you” at Sapphire strip club, where she addressed fans during a post-loss afterparty.

“The support you have when you win is great, but the support you have when you lose means the world,” Tate said on microphone, on a stage of bottle tables, then held a cloth to her broken nose.

Tate, who trains and goes to church in Vegas, has no body shame. A 2013 nude model for ESPN’s “Body Issue” magazine, she stripped nude behind towels, boyfriend by her side, Friday to make weight on a scale.

All these actors went to UFC 200, then partied at Aria’s club Jewel, where DiCaprio was joined by Tobey Maguire and a big entourage around 1 a.m.

For an hour and a half, the actors drank and partied next to the dance floor at a VIP table, as rapper Ja Rule joined Foxx onstage to perform, and top draft pick Jared Goff of the Rams drank Champagne at DJ Irie’s booth.

‘SHE SAID YES’

UFC featherweight Jeremy “Lil’ Heathen” Stephens proposed to his girlfriend next to Tao Asian Bistro’s Buddha statue on Friday.

“I love you so much. My heart. My soul. My everything,” he said, mentioning her connection with his daughters, while the overhead song playing was Nu Shooz’ “I Can’t Wait,” as you can see and hear on his Twitter video.

She gave him a long hug and said yes.

Speaking of cute lovers, Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate and fiancee Elise Pollard couldn’t quit each other for one night.

The couple rounded up friends for a bachelor/bachelorette party Saturday at Drai’s nightclub in the Cromwell hotel, where resident performer Tip “T.I.” Harris rapped.
