However, I was thinking if there is any authentic Filipino wrestling that can be used in the ring of mma or be considered its own thing.

When I say considered its own thing, I meant something along the lines of dumog being indigenous to the Philippines and being able to stand up on its own against other martial arts with out relying on foreign fighting systems to accomplish the job. People now a days have the attitude that "why do I need to take this martial art if the other can get me there better"

An example would be how most people tend to take bjj or judo or something like chiense or european jacket wrestling or folk wrestling.

I'm simply asking if dumog is something that can stand on its own with out relying on foreign arts
