Budnik built up an undefeated 6-0 record fighting close to home before being invited to compete in WEC. He made his debut for the organization on August 3, 2008 at WEC 35 against Greg McIntyre. He won the bout by pulling off a submission due to triangle choke in the third round.

In his next bout he would face collegiate wrestling champion and fellow Oklahoman Shane Roller. Budnik lost via guillotine choke in the first round.

Budnik competed in a notable fight against UFC veteran Rich Clementi, which he lost due to rear naked choke in the 5th round. Budnik has made it on The Ultimate Fighter 12. Budnik was eliminated on the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter by Nam Phan by 1st round TKO due to a liver shot and punches.

Budnik fought again on July 17, 2010 against UFC Vet Anthony Macias and won the fight in the second round by submission due to an arm triangle choke to improve his record to 9-4. After recent wins over Scrap Pak fighter and Bellator and Strikeforce Vet Johnny Carson, Miletich fighter Brandon Adamson and winning the Combat MMA 155 lb. title over rising Oklahoma star Jesse Chaffin, Budnik's winning streak has reached 6 in a row.
