The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is a 4th of July tradition.  This year, if you're from Buffalo, you'll have an extra reason to watch.

He's only been here in Buffalo for a year, but already he thinks he might just be the "Hungriest Man in Buffalo."  On the 4th of July, we might find out if he's right.

His name is Ronnie Hartman but you can call him "Megabyte Ronnie."  This year he is challenging Joey Chestnutt and all of the other competitors in the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.

During the day, you might find him working in the IT department at New Era Hat Company.  But when he's not there, you might find him in the ring.  He's also a professional wrestler.  Oh yeah...and he's also got a contract as a professional eater.  This is actually his 4th Nathan's Hot Dog Contest.

According to WKBW, Hartman started his professional eating career after he got back from being deployed to Afghanistan in 2012.  His original goal was to check "Man v. Food Challenges" off his bucket list.  Now, he would like to be in the top 5 of professional eaters, and maybe make it to Wrestlemania.
