COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One local man will soon find out if he is a cut above the rest.

Mark Williams is a meat cutter at the Texas Road House restaurant in Columbus. On Feb. 24, 2015 Williams will be in Orlando Florida to participate in the Texas Road House Meat Cutting Competition.

The cutter who has the master skills will win a cash prize of $20,000. Williams has worked at Texas road house for almost 10 years, he says he is excited about the competition.

"The nerves kick in it's very intimidating. There are a lot of meat cutters throughout the United States and that is the reason they are there. They are good at what they and I have to prove that I am better," Williams stated.

To make the competition even more intense the event will take place on an ice rink in order to duplicate the frigid temperatures meat cutters have to work in. Only the top 10 will be selected for the final round in Arizona.
