To answer the orignial question of the thread in the shortest possible way: No!

The somewhat extended version: No - the level of 'dan' grade that any martial artist achieves does not automatically makes a dead sure fact that he can beat anybody with a lower level of black belt. The rank of a perosn has little gurantied relation to accomplishment. Especially between different MA's is has no meaning at all.
