Former UFC, Bellator Fighter Paul Redmond Announces Retirement

23-fight MMA veteran Paul Redmond has decided to call it a career.

Redmond, 35, announced Tuesday via social media that he has retired from MMA.

“I think now is a good a time as ever to step away from MMA,” said Redmond in an Instagram post. “25 pro fights, a full amateur career, but the injuries are starting to mount up every fight camp.”

Redmond’s MMA career included appearances in the UFC, Bellator, KSW and Cage Warriors. He is retiring with a pro record of 15 wins and eight losses.

Redmond’s early years were in part built by Cage Warriors, where he attained seven wins through eight appearances from 2012 to 2014.

Redmond had a two-fight UFC run in 2015, getting cut by the promotion after losing in both appearances.

His last fight was a submission loss to Georgi Karakhanyan on a Bellator card in early 2020.
