The Penang Top Team man towered above Brianata as he had a height advantage of about 17cm over the Indonesian.
The flyweight contest was therefore expected to be a swift affair but noone could have foretold that it would end so abruptly.
It was the first fight on the card in Champions & Warriors and many in the crowd barely got to take their place before Tan checked Brianata's attempt to bullrush him to the ground and he retaliated with a guillotine choke that won him the fight.
It beat Renato Sobral's 31-second armbar submission of Tatsuyo Mizuno in Destiny of Warriors last June and it also happens to be the fastest win in the promotion's history.
"Was that the fastest submission in One FC history?" a bemused Tan commented to FOX Sports.
"My strategy of going into this fight was that I knew he was going to try and take me down. I'm way bigger than him and he knows that I'm a striker and he's also a wushu fighter.
"I knew that coming in, and I was expecting it and so I got what I want."
Having registered the second win of his career, the 26-year-old hopes to be back in action soon in Kuala Lumpur, and One FC have already outlined that they wish to return to the Malaysian city before the end of the year.
"Hopefully, I will get to fight in the next One FC event in Kuala Lumpur.
"I'm happy it [the win over Brianata] was that quick.
"Every single fight, I try to finish as quick as possible. It's a good sign that I could do that."
The night also saw the quickest knock-out in One FC history as Alain Ngalani felled Mohammad Hassan with a spinning backheel kick after just 31 seconds on the clock. The Cameroonian beat the previous record held by Gianni Subba when the Malaysian beat Bruce Loh with a knock-out via soccer kicks 33 seconds into his fight at Rise of Kings last year.
