It appears Conor McGregor's defeats are as inspiring as his victories.

Rather than take a step back after suffering his first UFC loss at the hands of Nate Diaz at UFC 196, McGregor has been as open to the media as ever in his desire to fight again as soon as possible.

That competitive moxie provided the fuel for director Edward Balli, who put together a montage of McGregor highlights and lowlights in anticipation of his return.

Balli utilizes fight footage, media quotes, and Sylvester Stallone's oft-cited "Rocky Balboa" speech to frame McGregor's comeback, all to the backdrop of "All These Things That I've Done" by The Killers.

Enjoy the goosebumps.
