[VIDEO] Joey Chestnut, Miki Sudo Repeat as Champs at Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest

Devouring an impressive 71 hot dogs in 10 minutes, defending champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut won the coveted Mustard Belt for the 12th time Thursday afternoon at the annual Nathan's Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest on New York City's Coney Island boardwalk. This year, Chestnut faced 17 opponents, including 2015 winner Matt Stonie -- the only man to beat Chestnut since 2007. Chestnut easily topped second-place finisher Darron Breeden, who downed 50 hot dogs and buns, and Geoffrey Esper (third with 47). This was Chestnut's his fourth time consuming over 70 dogs, and last year, he set a record by eating 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
