UFC welterweight Steve Montgomery is a small town guy, working hard to achieve his big time dreams.

Big is UFC 193 on Saturday, Nov. 14 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. That event is expected to be the highest attended show in UFC history, and Montgomery is on the card.

A confident Montgomery (8-3) will face Melbourne native Dan Kelly (9-1).

Originally from Florence, S.C., Montgomery went from training in a spare bedroom near his hometown to now learning from the best at the prestigious American Top Team in (South Florida) Coconut Creek.

Also a surfer. Montgomery enjoys the South Florida beaches, but his primary focus is MMA, and he is ready to make some waves at UFC 193.

UFC 193 will feature a first -- women’s title fights as the main and co-main events.

Valerie Letourneau (8-3), another from American Top Team, will face undefeated strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (10-0). Then in the main event, bantamweight champ Rowdy Ronda Rousey, also undefeated, battles top contender and unbeaten The Preacher’s Daughter Holly Holm (9-0).
