It does in a way, but not in your stomach. Soluble fiber binds with bile salts which binds with fatty acids in the small intestine. This limits the absorption of fatty acids since most of nutrient absorption from food occurs in the small intestine. But eating a lot of soluble fiber won't necessarily counter the effects of eating a diet high in fat.
