Former UFC MW title challenger Chael Sonnen has been carrying on a bizarre and one-sided feud with NBA superstar LeBron James. Fans can rest easy now as Sonnen is claiming that he and James have patched things up.

For those who actually pay attention to the words coming out of UFC star Chael Sonnen's mouth, the past couple of months have been more perplexing than most as Sonnen has taken to the airwaves to repeatedly blast Miami Heat star LeBron James for allegedly saying unflattering things about Sonnen's wife Brittany Smith.

Well fans of LeBron can rest easy as their man is apparently now safe from the vengeance of the mighty Chael. Per MMA Fighting:

"LeBron's off the hook," Sonnen said on the Toucher & Rich Morning show in Boston. "LeBron has made it right." When asked what that meant, Sonnen said, "That's between LeBron and me. He did the right thing, and I forgave him."

Sonnen claimed that James walked up to Smith backstage at a UFC event andasked her if there's a Tic Tac in her blouse or if she was just happy to see him. He also claimed James was rude to a handicapped child.

"I had a UFC employee tell me he saw a mother wheel her handicapped child up to him to get a picture," Sonnen said. "LeBron was talking toward them. When he reached the kid, the mother stopped the wheelchair. LeBron took the wheelchair, wheeled it out of the way and kept walking. I'd like to slap the divots right off his face."

But that's all in the past now. Chael's looking forward, not looking back.
