Total fallacy. Fame does not equal fighter quality.

See, personally I don't like seeing women fight, BUT I respect their right to fight, if they choose to.
I, for many reasons, can't spar a woman hard, it has to do with ME not them, so I don't spar women.
I don't feel it is fair to them.
Grappling sure, but not striking.
Upbringing I guess.
But as a MA and former Fighter, I can sure appreciate skill when I see it.

Hard to find "proof" of thai fighters and their records with a quick google search as most info on them hasn't been printed in english, but every mention of her fighting Jaidee describes him as a muay thai champion.
From an interview with Rijker:
"Rijker has "been there, done that" with a male martial artist, Muay Thai champion, Somchai Jaidee, in 1995, Jaidee winning via a second round KO. Lucia remembers, "(Jaidee) was not some guy off a barstool, this was a world champion."

I found a clip though from that fight. http://www.mikemiles.com/video/rykerjaidee.mpg Looks like a pretty brutal KO. Lucia gets mad respect from me though, she had beaten all the best women so she decided to move up and go against the man. But the reality is harsh and the fact is that it doesn´t matter how good a woman is, she just doesn´t stand a chance against a skilled male fighter like that Thai guy.
