Joey Chestnut won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest yesterday by consuming 63 dogs…more than any other participant.   It’s Joey’s 15th Hot Dog Championship in 16 years…making him the best hot dog eater of all time.

But, what really sent the mustard flying yesterday was the choke-hold Joey put on a protester who was trying to disrupt the contest.

As you can see in the video below, Joey doesn’t even break stride and continues to chew while choking the guy out!   Security then came and the man was arrested.

Give it up to Joey Chestnut…the Rocky AND Rambo of competitive hot-dog eating!
