Hot Dog Eating Champion Joey Chestnut Defeated By Matt Stonie

Matt Stonie upset Joey "Jaws" Chestnut to win the July 4th hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous in Coney Island, breaking Chestnut's bid for a ninth straight victory.

"I trained hard for this. This is actually amazing,"

"We don't just go up there and eat hot dogs. We practice for this. We prepare our bodies," Stonie said. "It was a tough contest. Joey brings it all. I had to push really hard to beat him. But I feel great."

Chestnut, smiling in defeat, said he was slow and couldn't catch Stonie, who entered the match weighing just 125 pounds to Chestnut's 230 pounds.

"I've been looking for competition for a long time and I finally have it," he said, vowing to return next year. "He made me hungry."
