Redmond made his promotional debut on January 24, 2015 at UFC on Fox 14, stepping in for injured Alan Omer against Mirsad Bektić.[4] He came into the bout over weight and as a result, had to forfeit a percentage of his fight purse.[5] He lost the one-sided fight via unanimous decision.[6]

Redmond next faced Robert Whiteford on July 18, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 72.[7] He lost the fight via knockout in the first round and was subsequently released from the promotion.

On 24 February 2017, Redmond faced former fellow UFC veteran Norman Parke in his debut at BAMMA 28. He lost the fight by majority decision.

Redmond faced Rob Sinclair at BAMMA 30 on 7 July 2017. He won the fight via submission in the second round.

On 23 February 2019, Redmond faced Charlie Leary at Bellator 217. He won the fight via unanimous decision.

Redmond was expected to face Brandon Girtz at Bellator 227 on September 27, 2019, but was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an injury and was replaced by Jon Tuck.[9]
