BS. I’d venture that an experience Eagle driver could take him.
I watch lots of Military channel, 4 Japanese Zero's teamed up against surviving Dauntless SBD drive bomber. One Zero could easily out fly the dive bomber but the American pilot didn't give up the fight he dogfight the Dauntless dive bomber, shot down 3 Zero's, rammed the last Zero the badly damaged dive bomber returned to base. Eagle vs Flanker? It all depends who's driving the plane.
