Christian Sundance is an American mixed martial artist from El Segundo, California. He currently competes in the 93kg division of the Japanese promotion KUMITE.
Christian Sundance was born into an acting family and was not left much choice by his legendary but overbearing father Jennings Sundance to continue the family tradition. He quickly became one of the top child stars of his time, appearing in anything his father booked for him, from commercials to broadway. But he found his greatest fame in television, starring in multiple sitcom pilots. Each of these shows was produced and directed by Sundance's father, who had complete creative control over the shows. In every episode, Sundance would sing "Seasons of Love," after which the pre-recorded studio audience would give a raucous ovation. Unfortunately, the shows never had much substance and the cast, especially Christian, quickly became fatigued due to the 23-hour work days mandated by Jennings. Nevertheless, Jennings persisted and six of the Sundance family's pilots made it into the prestigious Friday primetime "TGIF" block on the American Broadcasting Company. Sundance hoped the audiences from "Full House" and "Family Matters" would carry over to his shows, but they never did, and all six sitcoms only lasted one episode.
Critics called the TGIF disaster the end of Christian Sundance's career, and they were right. His career officially ended when he showed up to a Flintstones Vitamins commercial shoot without pants and under the influence of many over-the-counter medications. Sundance became reclusive for years before resurfacing in HCL, claiming that he envisions his legendary but overbearing father Jennings Sundance as he is fighting his opponents in the octagon-like structure. Unfortunately for Christian, his opponents have had as much success beating him as his father did.
Sundance was released from his HCL contract on Friday, November 29, 2013, after six fights and a record of 1-5.
