With the view you posted here I'm not really really sure, but usually when you export normal maps from zBrush to maya you have to flip it vertically ( you can just flip the image vertically with Photoshop or whatever ).

If that's not the problem, maybe try to take the lowpoly model out of zBrush by exporting the level 1 subdiv instead of the base mesh that you made prior to taking it in zBrush, because maybe without noticing you touched the UVs ( for instance I think if you check some options, when subdividing it can smooth the UVs too ).

Hope it helps !!!
