Another Fourth of July, another Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest from the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenue in Coney Island.

Will anybody take down Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut? The San Jose, California native has won six straight Mustard Belts since he wrestled the belt back to America from Japanese legend Takeru 'The Tsunami' Kobayashi in 2007.

But Jaws is going for two records. Not only he wants a seventh title, he's aiming for 70 Hot Dogs and Buns in the 10 minute time limit!

And who will dethrone Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas as she goes for her third straight title in the women's competition?

Time: Women's Championship, 11:30 a.m. ET; Men's Championship, 12:30 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN 2 (Live at 12 p.m. ET), ESPN (tape delay at 1 p.m. ET)

Live Stream: ESPN3.com

Wow! Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas retains her Women's title by a fraction of a hot dog and bun.

Thomas wins her third straight title in the women's competition in a photo finish over Juliet Lee by 3/4 of a HDB, 36.75 to 36.

Why would he hold out of this tournament when it's the only one people care about?
